About This Deal

From the Old West’s chuck wagons and military bases’ 1950s mobile canteens to more recent incarnations like taco trucks and hotdog stands, food trucks are far from a new concept. However, in the last few years a revolution has taken place and instead of the usual burgers, dogs and fries, food truck cuisine is suddenly gourmet and fancy while still maintaining very affordable price points. Bringing classic Japanese fare to the mobile food market, the JapaCurry food truck cooks up a variety of authentic Japanese curries and bento boxes filled with your favorite Asian flavors. Get a taste of the Bay Area’s first Japanese food truck with today’s deal of $10 worth of food and drinks for just $5.

As one of the most popular dishes in its home country, Japanese curry is made up of a variety of veggies and meats with a blend of spices. JapaCurry’s signature curry is created from scratch using a secret recipe of spices and quality ingredients cooked slow, allowing the bold flavors to develop fully. Try options like the katsu curry of deep-fried pork or chicken and rice, the sausage curry that uses high quality Kurobuta pork or the veggie croquette curry with a homemade croquette of potato, pumpkin and onion. Though you can request you preferred level, if you can’t take the heat, opt for one of the bento boxes. Try options like the shredded beef with BBQ sauce, teriyaki chicken, fried tofu or the nori bento with fried fish, fish cake and dried seaweed. Grab a side of deliciously pickled vegetables and wash it all down with drink options of water, soda or green tea.

Well, that one didn’t last long – sold out with a quickness.

But now, a similar deal is back, courtesy of Google Offers.

See?

Note that this if for Early Birds only, so you’ll need to be seated by 6:30 PM. (Little Stars are busy enough during prime-time dinner hours already, right?)

Hurray!

Also, Hurry! As this deal won’t last long.

Today’s $1 LivingSocial “Instant Deals” Lunchtime Kickoff is Actually Pretty Good – See What’s Left Right Now If You Want

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Remember yesterday? I do, good times.

Anyway, this post from July 12th, 2011 foretold of LivingSocial’s “Instant Deals” Lunchtime Kickoff in the 415 and, well, now it’s here.

Something like this looks to be a fair bargain:

But act fast before the better deals in your area are gone. And this is for today, July 13th, only.

Just saying, Bro.

Ah, memories:

“Remember back in the day, back when those social deals were good deals? I do. It was the Golden Age of Groupon – it lasted for about three months last year.

Remember Visa Day, when you could get a second 50% off deal paid for by Visa and then you referred a couple friends to get yet another 50% off deal at a decent place? Good times.

Anyway, LivingSocial wants you to download their smartphone app (and I guess you can get in on this via a PC as well) so that you can get in on the big $1 lunch special on July 13th, 2011 all over San Francisco. I cautiously endorse this offer and beseech you to seal the deal tomorrow AM just after your manservant wakes you from your slumber by gently rapping on your bedroom door.

And then, come lunchtime, you’ll be as happy as a Golden Gate Park squirrel with its own peanut butter samwich:

OMG, It’s “VISA Free Deal” Day – $80 Worth of Food at Tokyo Gogo in the Mission for Just $20!

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Here’s what you do, you buy a $40 credit at four-star Yelp-rated Tokyo Gogo for $20 on your Visa Card, and then you choose the person you want to receive another $40 credit at four-star Yelp-rated Tokyo Gogo.

That’s it. Now, you’re not allowed to take your friend to scarf down $80 worth of fish in one sitting, so that’s the catch, if you’d call it that. You’d need to invite your friend on one night and then s/he could pay you pack another night. (Oh, and if you refer three friends who fork over their $20, then you get another $40 credit to give to someone else. Quite iterative, non?

Otherwise, today’s deal is the sweetest social deal I’ve seen since Tsunami a few months back.

“Limit 3 per person, buy as many as you’d like as gifts • Limit 1 per party of 4 people (maximum of 2 vouchers can be used for parties of 8 or more people) • Gratuity not included (Be nice and tip on the pre-discounted total!) • Dine-in only (not valid for takeout or delivery) • Not valid during happy hour • Other conditions apply • Promotional value expires on 04/08/11″

Enjoy!

Group-Buying Websites are All the Rage in the 415 – $4 Movie Tickets are Back

Friday, May 21st, 2010

I’ll tell you, the kids these days, they want to get a deal, but they want their friends in on it to. Or something. I’m not sure how all it all works, but all’s I know is that I don’t see the downside to forking over four bones, waiting for a letter in the post and then going to an AMC theater like Metreon or AMC Van Ness to catch a movie.

You’ll party cause it’s priced like 1999 (or earlier). Speaking of which, I’ll remember that year as the era of the WebVan – the things were double-parked all over town. Anyway, they would pick up your choice of DVD or videotape at BlockBuster, deliver it to you, and then pick it up a few days later, all for free! Of course you still had to pay the rental fee, but you had to wonder how the transaction made money. (It didn’t, actually. I think the investors got 1% of their investment back, by selling off the vans and the Herman Miller chairs, an icon of the era. ) 

Anyway, check out this kgb Deal, comrade. (They’re saying $4 is the 1989 price to see a movie. I forget, but it sounds credible.) KGB is a new outfit, so I assume that they’re offering a good deal to make a splash.

In Soviet Russia, KGB deal with you, but in America, KGB give you deal. America, what a country!

Check the deets – they’re only mailing out to bay area addresses.

IMO, this is a good, albeit small, deal.

Choose wisely.
