Science proves that people with well-traveled palates have a higher quality of life than picky eaters—sedentary mouths eventually become rooted to quick oats and mucilage. Bite into a delicious, worldly experience with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of home-style Puerto Rican cuisine and drinks at Parada 22 in the Haight. Within the exposed-brick walls and glass façade, the bright décor and Puerto Rican melodies call up notions of island fancies and sunlit feasts. Bestow the contagious energy of Parada's décor upon your taste buds with the tropical flavors of its menu, featuring imported ingredients, house-made authentic rice and beans, maduros, and a heartily meatless selection of vegan- and vegetarian-friendly dishes.
- And some will raise eyebrows at the sight of mixed baby greens alongside the white rice and deep-fried maduros (ripe plantains) on Parada 22's plates. The restaurant seems to embody a nostalgia once removed, two New Yorkers' love for East Coast restaurants serving emigré food, but not dedication to tradition at all costs. – Jonathan Kauffman, San Francisco Weekly
- The selection is basic, not delving too extensively into the potential of Puerto Rican cuisine, but definitely including some favorites along the way, including a delicious Pernil Asado, or marinated roast pork, one of the national dishes on the Isle of Enchantment. – Renee M.
