Though the Great Wall of China may win the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Japan, built to reach any itchy corner across the vast, narrow expanse of the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Asian creations with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of food and drink at Khotan, located in the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino.
Khotan grants star-studded views of the Las Vegas Strip and Sirens' Cove while presenting exquisite tastes from across Asia. Khotan's menu starts with morsel-packed small plates such as the jalapeño hamachi ($22), consisting of sliced yellowtail fish and jalapeño slivers that punch taste buds like a boxing-glove-fitted Siberian tiger. For dinner, the Cantonese-style crispy catfish ($34) is dramatically presented from head-to-toe at the table, and the Mongolian beef ($24), served with onions and garlic, pleases palates with all the appetizing assault of an authentic Genghis Khan snack-catapult. Chopstick wielders can indulge in the salmon parmesan roll ($23) for a solid sushi selection and then complement it with a carafe of sake.
Aside from its ultra-chic architecture, Khotan, named for an ancient desert kingdom, also holds one of the largest private collection of hand-carved jade and ivory antiques in the U.S. While antique appraisers dine indoors, sky-sippers can revel in the twinkling electric fireflies dotting the Las Vegas landscape from Khotan's outdoor patio. Behold priceless artifacts and sample new tastes from the geographic juggernaut of Asia with a meal at Khotan.
