The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet street fare at Tilted Grill.
Tilted Grill whirls taste buds thanks to a dizzying array of international street fare, complemented by reimagined comfort fare, aged Alberta steaks, and specialty vodka and tequila. The menu assembles an all-star team of dishes handpicked by the Queen's special forces culinary unit, unearthing delicacies such as Southern Thailand's tiger-shrimp cake swaddling muscular prawns in aromatic shallots, ginger, kaffir-lime leaves, and lemongrass beside a reflecting pool of sweet curry sauce ($16). Marinated for two days in 18 herbs and spices, the peking crackling chicken flash-fries succulent fowl ($24), and the grilled-cheese fondue reimagines a comfort classic as it layers three cheeses, sliced pears, and cranberry compote ($13). Steaks cut from aged AAA Alberta beef come straddled by seasonal veggies and choice of signature comfort-fare side, such as apple coleslaw or a mashed-potato teddy bear ($27+ for an 8 oz. tenderloin). Outside, the 2,000-square-foot patio and its two fireplaces invite lively conversation about investing in exotic goats while swigging a Grasshopper wheat ale ($7.50/pt.) off the extensive drink menu.
