Peanuts and pearls were the twin staples of Thai cuisine for centuries, during which time it was also considered fashionable for wealthy merchants to sport mouths full of broken teeth. Todays Groupon brings the two back together in a slightly more accessible culinary combination: for $7 you get $20 worth of Thai dinner cuisine and drinks at Peemkaew.
Delicious peanut sauce and the pleasures of the surrounding Pearl District are only part of the appeal of Peemkaew.

Customer favorites include the green curry, pineapple fried rice, and Pad Thai topped with ground peanuts. The fresh salad rolls ($4.95 for dinner) have also earned a place in the hearts of Portland Thai lovers that can only be cleared out with expensive surgery. In addition to the basics, youll find unique chefs creations for dinner, such as the red pumpkin curry ($10.95 for chicken, beef, pork, or tofu; $12.95 for shrimp, scallop, or salmon). The house-specialty barbecue chicken ($9.50) comes marinated in a Peemkaew secret-recipe sauce that will cause your taste buds to target your stomach with an aggressive PR campaign for more Thai food.
