Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of Thailand with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at Orchid Winter Park in Winter Park.
Orchard Thai’s menu spotlights well-spiced authentic Thai dishes. Begin with the Thai summer roll, a montage of lettuce and carrots nestled in vermicelli noodles and served with hoisin sauce and crushed peanuts ($4) or sip your way into satisfaction with the traditional spicy lemongrass soup seasoned with kaffir leaves, lime, and chili-tamarind oil with shrimp broth ($5). The braised short-rib massaman sautés potatoes and bell peppers in a sweet curry sauce ($28), and lightly-fried Thai doughnuts ($5) or sweet coconut sticky rice with ripe mango ($7) are on hand to extinguish spice-sparked fires. Other entree options include an array of curries, noodle dishes, and specialty surf.
Orchid Thai’s interior features crisp white tablecloths and walls enlivened by bold, postmodern art. Sit and sip sake flights and cocktails indoors or dine al fresco while Mother Earth tickles your elbows.
