The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, sake, and more at Oishii Sushi Japanese Restaurant, on Denman Street.
Oishii Sushi rolls up fresh, distinctive sushi, robata, teriyaki, and more in a tasty mash-up of traditional Japanese and West Coast styles. Open mouths for the business of pleasure with appetizers such as the barbecue squid prepared on a robata charcoal grill ($8.95), or brightly flavored clams with garlic-butter sauce ($7.95).
Prepared with Poseidon's grandmother's secret recipes, Oishii's sushi is delicately rolled to showcase the ocean's precious booty, as in the deluxe sushi combo (a dynamite roll and eight pieces of nigiri sushi, $18.95), or served in its purest form with the assorted 12-piece sashimi platter ($14.95). Cooked fare runs crispy with a variety of vegetarian and seafood tempuras ($5.95–$12.95), and salty-sweet teriyaki dishes ($8.95–$16.95) that necessitate a choice of vegetables or proteins, and the willpower to keep from bathing in them. Giving palates repetitive fresh starts, rivers of throat-warming sake are served by the glass ($5.95–$8.95) or bottle ($17.95–$36.95), in addition to a selection of red and white wines, beers, and more.
