Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to tofu. Get a sailor's worth of energizing tofu and Asian specialties with today's Groupon to Keo Asian Cuisine in the Center 1 shopping center. Choose between two mealtime options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Southeast Asian fare during dinner.
- For $8, you get $16 worth of Southeast Asian fare during lunch.
Keo, which serves the dishes of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaysia, offers both lunch and dinner menus that read like the guest list at an international mixer. Kick things off with a lunch order of steamed mussels ($10) or a dinner sampling of frittered, multilegged sea critter, the fried calamari ($10). Lunch specialties include bell-pepper-enhanced Keo house stir-fry (with tofu, chicken, or beef, $8) and thai green curry ($9); nightfall drops entrees including a 14-ounce rib-eye steak with wasabi marinade sauce ($24) and seafood stir-fry, which dresses shrimp, tuna, calamari, and mussels in a sweet chili sauce, assuaging their fears that they would once again be done up in all denim ($16). Co-owner and head chef Zahidah Hyman cherishes fresh, healthy dining, and she ensures that each of Keo's dishes is chock-full of made-to-order morsels of nutritional pan-Asian sustenance.
Keo Asian Cuisine
Long before Keo opened its doors in 2007, owners Bill & Zahidah Hyman recognized a growing trend toward healthy dining. This, combined with America's affinity for Asian flavors, spawned Keo Asian Cuisine. Fusing traditional wok cooking from Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Malaysia, skilled chefs flame-kiss tuna, yellowfin, and quail for burgers and noodle dishes before adding inventive garnishes of lemongrass and sweet oyster vinegar. Under hanging lights with Saturn-style rings, patrons can toss back a specialty cocktail on the rocks, but for the sake of the floor-to-ceiling windows, are discouraged from tossing actual rocks.
