What You'll Get
People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with tasty Thai eats: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh, American-influenced Thai fare at Thai Juan On in San Juan Capistrano.
Thai Juan On features a menu that is chock-full of authentic Thai taste foundations, slightly altered to fit the grooves of American Thai eaters' taste buds. Kick things off with the likes of crispy noodle/mee krob ($6.95), before diving mouth-first into the rest of the menu. The dinner terrain covers more than 40 soup, noodle, rice, and entree dishes, including the magnificent noodle/mee phat num prik poa, which melds egg noodles with shrimp, scallop, calamari, and veggies ($15.95). The mermaid's dowry/pla prik lets diners sample the spicy taste of grilled sole, bell peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and onions before awkwardly explaining to their parents that they're in love with a human-fish hybrid. Thai Juan On's daily lunch menu features midday palate jolts like the Crying Tiger ($9.95)—grilled beef with spicy lime sauce—and the Red Devil ($10.95), spicy beef masaman curry with potato and onion.
Thai Juan On revels in its customers' foodjoy, and makes difference-making minute adjustments when necessary. Many dishes can be ordered sans wheat, diners can request for meals to be made spicy or not so spicy, and the restaurant banishes MSG to the land of wind and ghosts. A full bar provides cocktails, vino, and draft beer to complement dishes dressed in Thai Juan On's myriad homemade sauces.
