Eating international fare locally eliminates the woes associated with transatlantic travel, such as jet lag and oar splinters. Stamp your palate’s passport with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of casual Middle Eastern and Asian fare and flavoured Shisha at Lounge 306.
Lounge 306’s kitchen staff whips up a menu replete with a mélange of Middle Eastern, Indian, and diner fare while hookah pipes packed with flavoured shisha bolster meals. Kick off feeding frenzies with appetizers such as the pumpkin fries forged from wedges of free-range jack-o’-lanterns cloaked in a batter of spices ($7). Infused with a dozen spices, the 1.1-pound patty nestled within the 306 burger ($13) renders tongues speechless; singaporean noodles ($11) treat tummies to chow mein festooned with giant prawns and fresh vegetables. Like da Vinci's later Bollywood films, the bengal chicken pizza ($11) marries Italian form and Indian flare via a tandoori-naan base topped with butter chicken and mozzarella cheese. Diners gather around glass hookahs and pipe post-feast inhalations while smouldering coals coax rich flavours from regular ($10) or premium ($15) shisha. Puffsmiths can forge smoke rings and hone teakettle impressions with a choice of more than 70 shisha flavours.
