Spicy food is a great way to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at co-ed canoe camp. Tastefully test your edible mettle with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Thai cuisine at Sala Thai. Choose from three locations on U Street or Georgia Avenue in Northwest DC, or on Cordell Avenue in Bethesda.

Sala Thai serves authentic menus of spicy, sweet, and savory Thai eats. Tickle taste buds into alertness with a starter such as the Sala Thai dumplings, feather-light wonton pillows filled with steamed crabmeat, shrimp, and minced pork ($6.95). Move on to traditional entrees including pad see ew—rice noodles, egg, and broccoli sautéed in soy sauce with your choice of chicken, beef, or pork ($10.95 at Bethesda location, $11.95 at DC location)—or chef's specialty ped ma-kram, a boneless roasted duck breast garbed in flavorful robes of sweet-and-sour tamarind sauce ($15.95, only available the at DC location). Non-meat eaters can sup from selections including panang tofu with spicy curry peanut sauce ($8.95 in Bethesda, $9.95 in DC), a delectable departure from the earliest vegetarian meals of dried grass and leaves painted to look like steaks.

Since music and food go together like Holmes and Watson or politics and panicked self-flagellation, Sala Thai offers live jazz and blues performances at both locations. All performances are cover-free to ensure wallet friendly, digestion-aiding toe tapping. A fun, friendly atmosphere and palate-pleasing cuisine make Sala Thai a pleasant comestible-stuffed retreat.

Sala Thai

Though united by their name and a penchant for serving spicy Southeast Asian cuisine, each Sala Thai restaurant blazes its own culinary trail. Some dishes, such as the kee mao—flat rice noodles sautéed in hot chilis—sate diners' hungers at all locations, and other bites can only be found in one place. To appease a variety of tastes, each location has a daily specials menu, which features entrees like Chu Chee Seafood, a medley of seafood in a signature coconut red curry.
