When it comes to clairvoyant pastries, breaking apart a fortune cookie is much more dignified than digging through a jelly donut in search of a mini magic 8 ball. Revel in the extrasensory perception of Eastern eats with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of authentic Chinese fare at Sichuan Cuisine.
Hailing from Sichuan province in China, the culinary wizards at Sichuan Cuisine sate moaning stomach sirens with a multifarious menu replete with authentic Chinese fare. Guests can kick off feeding frenzies with a slippery battle between chopsticks and the hot and sour special rice noodles ($2.95) eager to evade their clicking clutches. Stir-fried lamb arrives at tables in a piquant cloak of spicy sauce and cumin ($11.95), and twice-cooked beef ($9.95) impresses mouths with double the oven experience of regular plates. Chefs deftly eschew Western preparations of ubiquitous Chinese dishes, festooning their kung pao chicken with dried chilies and Sichuan peppers rather than Funyun-flavored allspice ($8.95). The dynamic hunger-fighting duo of sautéed potato with green bell pepper ($7.95) entertains taste buds with its savory plant-based charms, ideal for vegetarians or pet brontosaurs.
