Like romance novels, dumplings fit tempting tidbits into a small but steamy package. Passionately devour cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at Thai Town Restaurant. Skilled chefs channel the flavors of a Bangkok street market through a menu of Thai staples, such as coconut curry and pad thai. A golden trail of steamed thai dumplings ($9) coaxes patrons through the door, where a deep-fried tofu saté lounges invitingly beside a bath of warm peanut sauce ($8). Carnivores can arrange brisket, beef, and meatballs into a secret message atop a pho special noodle soup ($10), while vegivores freshen breath and chopsticks with a spicy order of noodles pan-fried in mint leaves and broccoli ($10). Spice-splashed mouths cool off with refreshing gulps of beer, wine, or age-appropriate soft drinks. Before waving white napkins to signal meal surrender, customers can vie for some face-to-face time with the popular shrimp pad thai ($11).
Classic Thai dishes—from pad thai and curries to noodle soups and fried rice—entice those who enter Thai Town. The menu is split into clearly defined categories, allowing patrons to easily scan a bevy of noodle, seafood, soup, seafood, and vegetarian selections. For example, the restaurant prepares 18 seafood specialties and 19 entrees geared to vegetarians, often making it necessary to select a dish by employing a Ouija board.
