For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savoury satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mongolian barbecue at The Mongolie Grill. This Groupon is valid at both the South Side and downtown Edmonton locations.
At The Mongolie Grill, a sponsor of the Edmonton Oilers and a preferred restaurant of the team, patrons orchestrate a stir-fried feast of fresh vegetables, succulent meats, and 18 different from-scratch sauces. After assembling a palate-pleasing collage of veggies and proteins, diners can douse creations in sweet coconut or peanut sauce or can jolt tongues out of a stamp-licking stupor with spicy thai or curry varieties. Spatula gurus then sizzle meals across the grill before escorting them to tables flanked by steaming bowls of jasmine or brown rice and house-made soup. Prices vary by weight (a half bowl runs between $8 and $12, and a full bowl between $19 and $30). Diners strike glasses of wines ($9.50), beer ($6.25–$7.25) and fruity cocktails ($6.99–$9.25) with spoons to show their satisfaction via xylophoned renditions of power ballads.

Spatula-wielding cooks flip diners' custom meals across the sizzling grill, then escort them to tables along with steaming bowls of jasmine or brown rice and house-made soup. To accompany each bowl, patrons can sip from an all-Canadian wine list that includes vintages from Sandhill, Peller Estates, and Gray Monk Estate.
The warm hues of sunset collide with sleek metal accents and bold geometric artwork in The Mongolie Grill's interior, dominated by the huge circular grill in the center. Dinner conversation takes place over white tablecloths or within cozy booths, which are also ideal settings for five-minute naps.
