Asian culinary traditions were shaped by the continent's natural resources—earth full of zesty ginger roots, a climate ideal for rice, and viscous sweet-and-sour springs. Enjoy nature's gastronomic beauty with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian-fusion fare and drinks at Suzy Wong's House of Yum.
The East-meets-West fusion cuisine at Suzy Wong's House of Yum springs fully formed from the mind of chef, owner, and former Top Chef competitor Arnold Myint. The menu smashes Eastern and Western traditions together, producing a tectonic-plate-rattling selection of appetizers, including Asian wonton nachos ($9+). Chopsticks tap-dance late into the evening across a cool cornucopia of sushi, whose ranks swell with reinvented dinner bites such as the BLT roll, where fresh tuna takes over the T spot for tired tomato ($9). Diners bask beneath the swirling majesty of dazzling dragon murals as they board the savory flavor-carousel of five-spice roasted duck, a king's portion of poultry and pineapple chutney under a golden crown of crispy noodles ($18). Chef Myint's store of creative acumen and magic edamame beans extends to the restaurant's stylish exposed-brick walls, chic lounge furnishings, and full bar, which work together to relax and entertain guests until 4 a.m. on weekends.
Suzy Wong's House of Yum
Head chef and owner Arnold Myint applies his culinary aptitude at Suzy Wong's House of Yum by crafting flavorful Asian appetizers and bowls designed for sharing. As groups swap bites of pineapple red curry shrimp or wonton nachos in a 1,100-square-foot dining room, a stretched canvas emblazoned with a colorful dragon hovers overhead, much like a knight-in-training's to-slay list. Exposed brick walls provide a backdrop for plush candlelit benches and tables, which can be crowded with wine, sake, and specialty cocktails as diners participate in weekly karaoke nights. Two patios provide even more space for cavorting, the lower tier stretches across 300 square feet, and the upper level commands 840 square feet of floor space.
