Restaurants are often designed to incite conversation, making them the perfect places for first dates or first interviews with potential barbers. Hit it off with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pan-Asian and Korean cuisine and drinks at Seoul Garden in Kentwood.
At Seoul Garden, seasoned chefs roll, sear, and sauté a diverse fusion of pan-Asian and Korean cuisine including seafood entrees and beef and pork platters. Diners can peruse the expansive menu and opt to festoon tables or makeshift bibs in the nautical duds of a Mongolian combination, which unveils fresh cuts of flank steak alongside succulent hunks of shrimp ($14.99). A stone bi bim bop ($15.89) challenges excavators to tunnel into a heated stone bowl, where juicy bits of beef, egg, and vegetables are kept loose for competitive dashes to tummy finish lines. Culinary decorators adorn plates with a colorful stir-fried arrangement of beef and fishcake in the Jap Chae ($15.89), while a platter of pan-fried string beans ($12.89) link together to satisfy veggie cravings or form new shoelaces for hobnail boots made from okra.
Artful coned light fixtures sway gently from the ceilings and hard-wood paneling weaving from booth to booth in Seoul Garden's inviting and intimate atmosphere. Iridescent fish tanks dance with vibrant variations of fishy residents, and draw diners' eyes with spirited splashes of color and nightly fish poker games.
