The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10–15 years in one of its maximum-security prisons, but the second-best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about Thailand with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a three-course meal for two at Sala Thai Kitchen (up to a $40.80 value). The three courses include:
• One appetizer to share (up to an $8.95 value)
• Two entrees (up to a $12.95 value each)
• One dessert to share (up to a $5.95 value)
Sala Thai Kitchen's menu treats taste buds to authentic Thai cuisine, whether they are seated at wood tables or atop padded booths that hold down the restaurant's shiny wood floor. Start off three-course nosh fests with deep-fried tofu, tender grilled satay chicken, or angel shrimp rolls before embarking on an ambrosial adventure to conquer Sala's noodle, curry, and stir-fried entrees. Flat rice noodles cradle meat, garlic, and broccoli in the pad si-ew dish, and massaman curry piques palates alongside coconut milk, potatoes, and cashews. Meanwhile, stir-fried salmon takes a savory swim through string beans, thai basil, and peppers. After entrees, diners can finish meals with a fresh mango or sticky-rice dessert, which will inspire tone-deaf tongues to serenade incisors with John Fogerty lyrics.
Sala Thai Kitchen
Executive chef and owner Jitrada Dreier creates signature Thai dishes using the same techniques she learned in her native Thailand while working in catering for government officials. Using fresh ingredients from local suppliers, she makes thai squid salad, Tom Kha coconut soup, and an array of stir-fry, noodle, and rice dishes.
