What You'll Get
The Great Wall of China was constructed to keep roving packs of ancient pandas from absconding with the local cuisine. Succeed where the bears failed with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks at Ming's Chinese Cuisine and Bar in Palo Alto. With its more than 200 seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes, Ming's menu encompasses lunch, traditional mid-day dim sum, and heaped family-style dinner entrees. Sneak away from your office's endless meetings and ballpoint pen jousts for a late-afternoon dim sum round of snack-sized prawn rolls ($7.05), baked BBQ pork buns ($4.25), and coconut custard ($5.10 after 3 p.m.). Ming's happy hour, which in the Chinese zodiacal hours is "the hour of the lounge lizard," gives stressed salarymen and salarywomen alike an elegant sanctuary where they can bandy about boss impressions over $5 chow fun, $3 beers, and $4 well cocktails.
