Today’s bi-flavored Groupon invites you to an epicurean Epcot Center. For $25, you’ll get $50 worth of Latin-Asian tastes at Zengo, an ethnic eatery from famed restaurateur and Denver magazine’s 2009 person of power Richard Sandoval.
This fusion-friendly restaurant follows Sandoval’s signature style: a playful décor (orange circular sofas, expressive floral artwork, a dining room decked out in warm tones) and a menu of innovative flavor combinations. Splurge on spicy sushi such as the Angry Zengo roll, meaty chunks of yellowfin tuna and avocado with sesame-chipotle rouille and wasabi tobiko ($12), or the sesame-chipotle aioli-sauced Volcano roll ($12). Other successful mash-ups include won ton tacos ($12), curried mussels ($13), and vegetarian rice dishes ($8).
Zengo is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Get this Groupon for a multisensory celebration of food and flair, or as a fast and affordable alternative to importing and reassembling Latin and Asian food to look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
