For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian-fusion fare and drinks at Plum Cafe Asian Grill.
Within this warm, family-owned Asian café, skilled chefs transform customers' menu requests into fresh, steaming meals on the spot. The made-to-order feasts mingle traditional and modern culinary traditions from across the Asian continent, and can launch with starters such as hot-and-sour soup ($1.99–$3.99) and chicken lettuce wraps ($7.95). Singapore street noodles vaunt piping-hot vermicelli noodles, still cooking in curry soy, beside fresh napa cabbage and a choice of chicken, tofu, or pork. Entrees include the mushroom-adorned drunken chicken ($8.95) and the honey-orange chicken and rice ($7.99), easily modified with shrimp (add $3) or smuggled into the movie theater inside of a Hulk costume.
Glossy booths and cherry-red floors endorse the eatery’s chic modernity, and glowing orange lights dangle like roadside flares from high, black ceiling joists. Patrons can dine with friends in the contemporary interior, or call ahead to place orders for pickup.
