Beyond his flowing locks, good looks and star turn on Top Chef Masters, celebrity chef Susur Lee is perhaps best known for his Singapore slaw, a colorful and towering pile of some 19 different ingredients. The tantalizing laundry list generally includes taro root, red onion, rice vermicelli, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, toasted sesame seeds, hazelnuts, fennel, and edible flower petals, among other things, all tossed with a salted plum dressing. Normally, this tasty thicket of veggies would set you back $16 at Lee’s trendy pan-Asian eatery Zentan near Thomas Circle. But, during happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., you can snag a skinny-sized portion of the chef’s signature salad for just $5 at the bar. With the money you save, you can also spring for some duck egg dumplings and a glass of house wine.
Coming up: on Wednesday, Taylor Gourmet will be offering free Puck’s soda with the purchase any hoagie or salad at all area locations of the fancy sandwich shop, while suds mecca ChurchKey will be spotlighting the winners of the Post‘s “Beer Madness” competition. And, on Thursday, the Penn Quarter farmers market reopens for the season at 3 p.m. sharp.
