Thai food attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of southeast Asian fare and drinks at Thai Bistro in Cordova.
At Thai Bistro, savants of Southeast Asian cookery brandish their wok-sizzling skills as they create a multifarious menu of authentic Thai cuisine. The chefs utilize fresh herbs, spices, and vegetables to craft creations such as the deep-fried bistro eggroll—a coiled spring-roll pouch sheathing a savory cache of ground pork and legumes ($3.75 for two rolls)—and the muai thai beef—a succulent serving of spicy meat on a bed of rice with a piquant dipping sauce ($15.95). Alternately, the vegetarian pad kra pow appeases herbivores with sautéed tofu, bell peppers, onions, and baby corn breast-stroking in a sea of chili garlic sauce ($11). Thai Bistro also serves up artfully arranged sushi. And diners can complement consumption with one of many well-behaved bottles on Thai Bistro's wine list, including the aromatic 2008 Rosemount traminer riesling ($5.75 per glass).
