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 Thai eats: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Thai fare and drinks at Thai Siam Restaurant in the People's Freeway neighborhood. The creative culinary house has won numerous local awards, including City Weekly's Best Thai award.
Addictive Thai tastes that are offered for lunch and dinner will help you accrue frequent foodie miles without having to build your airplane out of wax. Thai Siam Restaurant serves up an impressive array of creative and classic flavor combinations. Curb early cravings with an order of potato- and onion-stuffed curry puffs ($5.95) or fresh veggie spring rolls ($4.95), or set your taste buds afloat with a bowl of tom kha gai, a creamy coconut soup with chicken, kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass, galangal, mushrooms, green onion, and cilantro ($4 for a small). Fresh Thai salads such as the som tum with green papaya and whole shrimp ($5.95) delight lighter appetites, while full-flavored curry dishes such as spicy gang panang ($9.95) fill cavernous epicurean holes. For some fresh flavors hot from the wok, enjoy a plate of pad khing (ginger stir-fry, $8.95) or pad broccoli with your choice of chicken, beef, or pork ($8.95). Thai Siam also offers a tempting list of imported and domestic beers ($2.50–$4.50) as well as wine served by the glass ($4–$6) and bottle ($22), so you can wash down your rations like a grownup even if you're dreaming about coloring in a coloring book with various jams.
