The holy trinity of Cajun cuisine is onion, bell pepper, and genuine Louisiana hot-pepper bibles. Sample the combination of southern tradition and international influences with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of modern Cajun fusion cuisine at MaChu Restaurant in Somerset.
MaChu's menu courts appetites with modern, upscale Cajun dishes spiced with influences from around the globe. Traditional specialties such as seafood jambalaya ($19.95) and barbecued beef short ribs ($18.95) join culinary hands with out-of-town entrees including Cajun Asia—curried tilapia sautéed with bamboo shoots and served over yellow rice ($15.95). Fried selections such as Cajun fried chicken and southern fried fish ($9.95 each) don crisp golden-batter suits and promenade across tongues accompanied by a choice of hush puppies or fries.
Live entertainment sends jazz and DJ sets reverberating through the dining room, a chic space glimmering with candles and chandeliers and bordered by crimson drapes.
