International eating isn't a dangerous adventure through customs, where the customs officer asks you to open your bag, and you refuse, which prompts him to teach you about manners by reading select Goofus and Gallant comic strips. Taste international flavors safely and securely with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of street food from around the globe at Streat on 32nd and Red River.
Streat curbs cravings for the eclectic by re-creating the delectable dishes found on carts and street corners around the globe. Handheld helpings from Thailand and Texas can be found in the curry and coconut-milk-marinated chicken or beef satay ($5.99) and the homemade sweet cornmeal surrounding the classic corn dog ($5.99). Starch-swathed selections range from the italian panini ($4.99–$5.99) and Cowboy chicken burrito ($6.95) to the New York–style pizza ($2.49 per slice) and egyptian falafel ($3.99), created with a cumin, garlic, and onion-infused assemblage of green split peas, deep-fried and served with pita and tzatziki. Disguised as two vastly different characters, the humble hot dog performs its own meat-based Mrs. Doubtfire as the relish, onion, peppers, and mustard-decked Chicago dog ($5.99), and the cilantro, siracha, and kimchi-costumed Kogi dog ($5.99).
In addition to being privy to the awe-inducing array of choices, Groupon wielders can enjoy weeknight happy hour specials (4 p.m.–7 p.m.), with half-price appetizers such as Asian shrimp chips ($0.99), spiced edamame ($1.99), and baja ceviche with tortilla chips ($1.99). Early-morning hunger-havers will appreciate that breakfast is also served with an international edge, in addition to the satisfying Sunday brunch.
