The tongue is one of the body’s hardest-working parts, tirelessly articulating consonants and discouraging bicuspids from dropping everything to track down their biological parents. Show your official cuisine taster a little gratitude with today’s Groupon to Racha Thai & Asian Kitchen, located in Clackamas Mall in Happy Valley. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Thai cuisine for dinner (served Monday–Thursday 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.).
- For $6, you get $12 worth of Thai cuisine for lunch (served Monday–Friday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
Racha Thai’s culinary commander’s lunch and dinner menus conquer appetites with an expansive arsenal of noodle dishes, curries, and seafood. Teach your taste buds a few basic phrases in Thai with a dinnertime starter of tod mun—a spicy fish cake swimming in red curry paste alongside kaffir lime leaves, crispy basil, and cucumber dipping sauce ($10.95)—before plugging stomach caverns with the massaman curry, which puts your choice of tofu, meat, or fish atop a sweltering underbrush of thai vegetables, pineapple, and peanuts ($11.95+). To experience the peak of the chef’s culinary sorcery, run your chopsticks through a special such as lemon grass chicken ($11.95) or lunchtime summer fire, with vegetables, bamboo shoots, oyster mushrooms, and red curry ($8.95+). The diversity of dishes will appease omnivores and still allow vegetarians to eat freely without fear of finding an animal part or a Pac-Man ghost amongst their meal.
Open seven days a week, Racha Thai’s modern but authentic setting balances indoor saffron chandeliers with a lantern-lit side patio, where customers can practice their outdoor breathing techniques and watch the mall’s stampede of shoppers go by, followed closely by its stampede of bulls.
