To harvest the rich milk of a coconut, one must break through its hard husk by hitting it with a hammer, chopping it with a machete, or bowling it down a city street to knock down parking meters. Taste this hard-to-harvest delight and other flavors of Indian cuisine with today's Groupon: for $3, you get $6 worth of flavorful Indian cuisine at Liebe Gourmet Indian Fusion, located in Nolita.
Owned and operated by Indian-born Jay Batra, Liebe Gourmet Indian Fusion blends traditional flavors straight out of New Delhi with contemporary culinary flair. Liebe’s menu features a bevy of healthy options constructed from fresh ingredients, including their signature liebe roll, which is similar to the kathi rolls found at street vendors across the city. Infused with mouthwatering herbs, spices, and grilled onions, the liebe roll includes your choice of chicken, paneer, potato, or veggies ($5.95). Lighter options include tofu salad, which sports fresh tofu ready to be carved into soy sculptures of famous Indian prime ministers ($7.45), and sides such as raita—a blend of yogurt and select veggies ($2.95)—which can be enjoyed on their own or paired with an entree to tag team rambunctious taste buds. Satiate dessert desires with elaichi kheer, a homemade Indian rice pudding ($4.95), or initiate a delectable digestive rainy season with a specialty drink, such as the mango tango smoothie ($4.95) and the chilled almond-and-pistachio-flavored kesaria ($4.95). Diners can dig in while relaxing in Liebe’s casually modern dining room, where food is served swiftly and with friendly appreciation. Late-night hours ensure Liebe's naturally delicious noshables are available to quell the hunger created by moonlit jumping jacks and 12-hour arguments about where to eat lunch.
