With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Vietnamese and American fare at Tasty Casian on Essen Lane.
Tasty Casian presents its patrons with a mouth-pleasing mélange of Vietnamese and American flavors spread throughout a broad, eclectic menu. Start the mouthcapades with an appetizer of spring rolls, which incarcerate rice noodles, cucumbers, cilantro, and your choice of meat and seafood within the air-tight prison of tasty rice paper ($3.95). Or begin with a crawfish and crab dip ($5.95) that completes its crustaceous course with a complement of shrimp chips. A charbroiled Korean-style beef rib ($8.95) sends carnivores to protein paradise, and a selection of Vietnamese-style sandwiches ($6.95) and po' boys stuffed with catfish or shrimp ($7.95) save indecisive diners from tricky fork-versus-chopstick choices. Homesick Cajun cravers can also chew away their blues with the Mama Special, which tops a starchy stratum of white rice with a layer of fried catfish and American cheese, all crowned by crawfish etoufee ($9.95).
Today’s deal is valid for both dine-in and carryout orders, allowing you to enjoy your piping-hot meal in the piping-comfortable confines of Tasty Casian’s dining room or to take it back to your office, where you can impress coworkers with your capacity for caring by naming each individual grain of jasmine rice.
- Oh, the pho (pronounced "phuh" if you don't know) was also great. If we'd known the serving size was so large, we'd have split the order (or only ordered one). Wonderful broth with meats and noodles, with a large side plate of sliced lime, basil, jalapenos, and beansprouts to add. – laytonian, TripAdvisor
