The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Pan-Asian cuisine from Mama Fu's, which has locations in Downtown, the Triangle, Lakeline, Southpark, Georgetown, and New Braunfels. This Groupon can be used for dine-in, carryout, catering, or delivery and can be used toward the $5 delivery charge. See delivery zones for each location here.
Open an Asian-American dialogue with the guidance of a wide-ranging menu and the goodwill of taste-bud ambassadors. Start off with an order of spicy Thai Dynamite shrimp served over Asian slaw (S $5.49, L $8.99) or potstickers—dumplings filled with pork, green cabbage, scallions, and ginger and served with a citrus soy dip (S $3.99, L $6.99). Rice dishes and noodle bowls, such as Spicy General Fu and Pad Thai, are priced by main star, with chicken, beef, or tofu for $8.29, shrimp for $9.29, or veggies for $7.29. After selecting a hunger weapon, dive into the eastern seas of flavor with a wok-sizzled order of fried rice, which includes bean sprouts, scallions, carrots, egg, chopped broccoli, and brown sauce, or a spice-tastic Singapore noodle bowl with rice noodles tossed in a spicy yellow curry with carrots, onions, scallions, celery, garlic, and basil. A gluten-free menu and two special seared entrees are also available: seared ahi tuna steak, encrusted in sesame and served over a bed of sautéed spinach ($14.99), and flat- iron steak, marinated in a red-wine soy sauce and served on a bed of red bell peppers, mushrooms, and green and yellow onions ($12.99).
Since there are four ways to acquire a meal from Mama Fu’s, selecting the ideal route can require a bit of thought. Eating out provides a social atmosphere and (of course) chairs, whereas delivery delivers and catering caters, and carryout works the forearm muscles in preparation for a powerful appetite beat down. Flip a three-sided coin, allowing the fates to determine the destiny of your hunger, or skip the theatrics and simply drop by one of six locations for a savory bite.

- We tried Mama Fu's after a friend raved about it. The food is always great and the service is too. This location at Southpark Meadows is in the Grove section of the development, so there is a huge playscape right off the patio. – mkayo, Citysearch
- I've eaten at Mama Fu's twice now and was very pleased both times. – Mitchell K., Yelp
