Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Filipino American cuisine at Menchie’s.

Chef and owner Menchie introduces patrons to a menu that overflows with authentic Filipino dishes and a smattering of American diner classics. Diners can nestle into cozy red booths and warm up gastric motors with the shanghai lumpia ($1.50), four soft rolls that are stuffed with ground sausage or finely minced pork and double as regulation-size croquet balls. Juicy pork and shrimp hobnob with ginger root and mixed vegetables in the pork kinilaw dish ($8.99), and a whole fish joins juicy pineapple, potatoes, and red bell peppers in the fish escabeche platter ($8.99). Familiarity echoes from a bevy of burgers and sandwiches, including the bacon cheeseburger ($7.49) and the chicken-fried-steak sandwich ($7.99), fashioned with texas toast and your choice of potato.


Back the Philippines, Menchie enjoyed cooking the island nation’s traditional cuisine for her friends and family, imbuing her kitchen with the signature Filipino aroma of garlic and onions. After immigrating to Amarillo, Menchie still commands the wok in her eponymous restaurant, crafting authentic dishes the minute they’re ordered. Located in a former A&W drive-in, the dining room’s red-backed booths host diners as they enjoy plates of noodles mixed with chopped veggies or skewers of barbecued chicken. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, hot coals slowly roast a whole pig stuffed with lemongrass and onions as the pig quickly regrets its decision not to eat its lemongrass salad in the shade.
