A grumbling stomach is like an annoying younger sibling, always interrupting first dates and announcing that you still play with Barbies. Keep stomachs quiet sans duct tape with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Thai fare and drinks at Mango Thai Restaurant in Park Slope.
The seasoned kitcheneers at Mango Thai Restaurant dish out a menu of both classic and creative Thai dishes augmented by a selection of beer and wine. Stretch out mouths before the big game with the crispy spring rolls ($3.95) or the peanuty chicken satay ($5.95). Six selections of fried rice, including the green-curry variety, dotted with bell pepper, green beans, and carrots, come with a choice of 10 herbivorous, carnivorous, and vociferous proteins that include seitan, salmon, and crispy duck ($7.50–$9.95). Diners can cast a net over the royal spice red snapper wading in a house-roasted chili sauce ($13) or ingest one of the eatery's copious vegetarian dishes, such as the Bok Choi 101, a classroom of brown sauce where seitan-based vegetarian duck or tofu tidbits learn the basics of the nutritious green ($8.50).
Meals come to a saccharine end with a slice of frozen lime pie with fresh mango ($4), served at one of the eatery's candlelit tables. Diners may also choose to sip an ice-cold lychee saketini ($6) on the outdoor patio, which is lavished in flowers and protected from the musings of vagrant psychologists by a sturdy wooden fence.
