For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Pan-Asian fare at Liquid Ginger.
Asia’s diverse culinary traditions unite on Liquid Ginger’s menu, whose succulent meat and noodle dishes arrive at tables in an upscale dining room festooned with Chinese and Japanese artwork. Chefs dress juicy cuts of rib eye steak in Korean spices before tossing them on the grill and paring them with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce ($16), and chicken or beef bulgogi simmers in an oven-top hot tub of Korean pepper paste ($10).
Dangling lamps illuminate tables with a golden glow, complementing the flames that hop periodically from bowls of Thai red-curry chicken ($11). Fusion entrees such as ginger-glazed Atlantic salmon ($15) and Canadian lobster tails in Japanese chili-butter sauce ($25) celebrate Asia’s culinary diaspora, which began when Chinese seafarers constructed the first sailing vessels from sturdy wooden chopsticks.
