When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual global fare at Sunspot.

Sunspot’s Southwestern-, Caribbean-, and Latin American–inspired dishes demonstrate a commitment to flavor while serving up plates for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Slide into one of the slick, red leather booths and make eyes at the menu while a complimentary bowl of fresh tortilla chips and salsa keeps hunger pangs at bay with a wink and a crunch. Engage the stomach with a starting order of buffalo fried tofu ($9.95) before moving onto a heartier helping of the jerked spiced tuna salad ($11.95), whose seared rare ahi tuna frolics in a multicolored bouquet of mixed greens, avocado, cucumbers, and carrots. Or, let the baked enchilada ($9.95) with its blend of goat and ricotta cheeses and roasted veggies wrap taste buds in its cheesy tortilla hugs.

Sunspot offers late-night dining options at its smoke-free bar Tuesday–Saturday until 2 a.m., and until midnight on Sunday and Monday, welcoming night owls as well as humans. While today’s Groupon is not valid for alcohol, a selection of draft beers, wines, and spirits is available at the bar, which is nestled underneath a papier-mâché solar system of multicolored star lanterns.

Sunspot

Sunspot has been voted Best Vegetarian, Best Brunch, Best Wine List, and Best Lunch Spot by Metro Pulse readers for the menu’s gleeful collage of southwestern, Caribbean, and Latin American culinary traditions. Diners nosh on vegan, gluten-free, and omnivorous offerings including fried green tomatoes and sweet-potato tamales in low-key digs.

A large skylight casts warmth across walls the color of acorn squash, exposed brick, and a behemoth abstract mural of the sun. Servers pour from the kitchen, arms stacked with veggie burgers made in house and sandwiches stuffed with tofu and Jamaican-style jerk chicken. Behind the diner-style bar, bartenders sling 29 draft beers from brewers including SweetWater and Foothills and a substantial wine list of reds and whites by the glass or bottle. After polishing off a pan-seared tilapia in corn cream sauce, guests gaze at Sunspot's black-and-white wall photos. The restaurant is open until 2 a.m. on weekend evenings, serving food to night owls and people who trust the VCR clock.
