Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of one of our nation's states: for $7, you get $15 worth of made-to-order Hawaiian cuisine at LA'AU'S taco shop in Boulder.
Celebrated in the Colorado Springs Gazette for its novel synthesis of taco-based dishes and pan-Pacific fare, LA'AU's taco shop woos taste buds with a simple menu that successfully strives for a singular taste. LA'AU's products are made to order from the freshest possible ingredients, and its dining experience is reminiscent of Ford’s assembly line, except without the mandatory chants about how the Model T will win the war. First, choose your meal’s form, selecting from the initial options of three tacos, a bowl with rice and beans, a burrito, or a grilled-vegetable-filled salad. After that, a list of taco centerpieces, including steak ($6.55), veggies ($6.10), mahi-mahi ($7.50), and peanut miso huli chicken ($6.45) ensure the healthy heart and low-grade x-ray vision associated with protein. Choose from a myriad of styles such as mild mango, spicy aji de peru, or green papaya in the Hilo or Maui tradition to give your meal a flavor identity. LA'AU's also offers a bevy of sides and beverages to complement its quickly constructed meals, so customers can drink coconut milk ($2.50) or horchata ($2) instead of freeze-drying it and pouring it into their enemies’ gas tanks when they run out of sugar.
