Asian cuisine attempts to balance the five fundamental flavours: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of Asian fusion cuisine and drinks at Lemongrass in Mississauga.
The chefs at Lemongrass balance traditional and contemporary Asian flavours in a varied fusion menu encompassing pad thai, curries, and Vietnamese pho. Diners can prime palates with small plates such as grilled chicken satays drizzled in coconut-peanut sauce ($5.99 for four pieces) or dive into one of more than 20 wok creations, including thai cashew beef with jasmine rice ($11.99). Pad thai leads the parade of noodle dishes, escorting savoury chicken ($8.99), chicken and shrimp ($10.99), or vegetables ($8.50) down a noodle carpet garlanded with tamarind paste. The eatery’s muted tones of soft yellow, nature-inspired accents, and clean lines evoke the sleek but serene air of a glossy magazine humming soothing ocean sounds.
