Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens to bring rain, which is why modern humans throw pepper at vending machines to summon Diet Coke. Enjoy a showering of seasonings with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $15 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at Thai Senses in Oakville.
An Eastern-focused spice house, Thai Senses tickles tonsils with an eclectic menu, which escorts diners on a culinary tour of Thailand's varied edible delicacies. With an ambrosial essence wafting from the chef's quarters, guests can indulge their epicurean appetites with the orange cashew chicken, stir-fried with vegetables and chili paste ($10.95), or tangle their forks in a vessel of drunken noodles, garnished with chicken, beef, or tiger shrimp ($10.95, extra $3 for shrimp). For a taste of authentic Bangkok cuisine, submerge ladles in a thai street-noodle soup or challenge sweat glands with a spicy order of Mussels in the Jungle, freshly snared by camo-clad fishermen ($11.95).
Thai Senses complements its refined flavours with stylish, contemporary décor that includes Eastern-inspired artwork and a minimalist colour palette to help set the mood for an uncomplicated paint-by-numbers workshop. All appetizers are half off from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. so patrons can coat their tummies with skewered eats before happy hour.
