Convenient fusions have the power to revolutionize society, unlike the mind-boggling spork-whisk and the dangerously counterproductive blender-sewing machine. Enjoy successful edible fusions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of California-style fusion cuisine at Lei Lounge on Park Boulevard.
Lei Lounge serves up a roster of rich, savory dishes, culling inspiration from both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Roll up with a group of peckish pals and dig into a shareable meal, such as the loaded nachos, adorned with chili-spiced beef or chicken, black olives, black beans, guacamole, jalapeño peppers, and cheese ($12). The Kobe beef hotdog sliders pair tubular meats with a trio of mustard dipping sauces that complement each other better than a bikini with a matching monocle.
Legume lovers find fulfillment in the veggie burger, a grilled portobello burger topped with caramelized onions, cheese, spinach, and other opposites of meat ($7). The small-plates selection rotates daily, and may include edamame ($5), sweet-potato fries ($6), and Thai sticky coconut rice ($5). Wash everything down with the Tokyo Bubbles, a tongue-tickling blend of sparkling sake, mangosteen juice, and simple syrup ($8.50).
Lei Lounge's indoor dining area harnesses the eye-pleasing power of nature-inspired decorative accents, and the outdoor area showcases the beauty of actual nature. Open until 2 a.m. every night, Lei sates stomachs weary from rowdy nights of bingo at the community center.
