Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Siam, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious flavors with today's Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of authentic Thai cuisine and drinks at Jazmine Thai in West Chester.
Traditional tastes of Thailand adorn the romantic tables within Jazmine's dining room, introducing palates to flavorful bursts of signature lemongrass, bright chilies, and peanut-sprinkled dishes. For lunch, try the dancing sea salad ($10), a waltz of spicy grilled squid and shrimp soaring over a ballroom of mixed greens. If you swing by during the dinner hour, dive into a hearty plate of green curry ($14), a cornucopia of vegetables doused in coconut milk and topped with basil and your choice of meat or tofu. A full bar also resides in the relaxing space, allowing diners to complement their dishes with tasty libations like the lychee martini ($7), a tropical and tangy fusion of fruit, liquor, and giggle zest.
"I really love Thai food," says Jazmine Thai co-owner Josh Morton. "I love how it reflects all the taste buds, all the sensations, from sweet to sour, to spicy to salty." He shares this passion with his partner and executive chef Somsak Kechat, who artfully prepares and plates a wide range of dishes from Thailand's vast culinary treasure trove. With a Kechat does everything from sculpt fried rice into a heart to serve the shrimp-chicken-veggie dish inside a masterfully carved pineapple. He also prepares dishes such as the Spicy Sea of Love—a blend of seafood and green peppercorns—and the Evil Jungle Princess, a red curry he sautées with shrimp, chicken, and veggies. Meanwhile, a bartender compliments these interestingly named meals with a lineup of refreshing libations that includes wine, sake, and the My Thai cocktail, a tropical blend of fruit juices, liquors, and giggle zest.
