Eastern scientists identified umami as the fifth basic taste, beating out other flavor nominees such as "leftovers" and "not-as-good-as-Mom's-cooking." Tap into tastes beyond description with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale pan-Asian fare at Kang's Asian Bistro in Edmond.
Kang's Asian Bistro's culinarians craft gastronomic creations from China, Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand. Sample a taste of Asia without simply licking the menu by digging into crispy spring rolls ($6.95 for 4), tender chicken lettuce wraps ($8.45), and Szechuan wrinkle green beans ($9.95). A hearty pad thai noodle bowl—customizable with your choice of chicken, beef, or shrimp ($6.95–$10.45)—squashes the temper tantrums of hunger pangs, and the jalapeño-kissed five-spice quail ($16.95) persuades a knife and fork to clandestinely meet in the middle of a plate. Sushi suitors can choose chopstick-ready morsels such as nigiri ($1.75–$5.25) and sashimi ($9.50–$10.50), as well as specialty rolls such as the Atlantis ($11.50), which pairs shrimp tempura with cucumber, freshwater eel, and spicy mayo.
Kang's chic and modern interior rewards retinas with cozy low-lighting, contemporary furniture, and splashes of deep-red accents while offering romantic ambiance for couples not playing a Game Boy throughout dinner.
