A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Asian fusion cuisine at Jujube in Chapel Hill. The eclectic menu at Jujube features hybrid dishes sourced from a mixture of traditional Asian fare and contemporary western cuisine. The welcoming atmosphere beckons diners to experiment with cross-culture culinary combinations, such as scallion calamari with three sauces ($9). Snag some pan-fried pork and cabbage dumplings ($5) and taste meat-filled victory, or hang a fang on the most popular dinner entree—grilled lemongrass hanger steak with cucumber salad and spicy peanut sauce ($19). Italiasians can feed their dualistic desires with the Jujube bolognese ($11 for lunch, $15 for dinner), an Asian take on classic Italian meat-sauce pasta served in a rich sauce of braised pork, hoisin, and ginger skillfully harvested from wild gingerbread men.
