Seaweed is nature's duct tape—it works as well at holding together rolls of sushi as it does at quickly fixing a mermaid's broken bikini top. Keep it together with this Groupon.
$49 for an Omakase Tasting Experience for Two ($100 Value)
During the omakase (loosely translates to “chef’s choice”) tasting experience, diners embark on a sensory odyssey through the many tastes of Japanese cuisine. Working with the restaurant's freshest, most interesting ingredients, Chef Sho assembles a one-of-a-kind, multicourse meal of light appetizers, fresh sushi, and hearty entrees. Each meal comes with sake or a glass of wine.
Takara Japanese Restaurant
Working behind his traditional, glass-front sushi bar, Chef Sho makes believers out of discriminating palates by forging an alluring Japanese menu of delicately fried delights and richly flavored fish straight from the sea. Warm, exotic appetizers such as broiled squid fire gustatory starting pistols before diners delve into heartier entrees from the kitchen, including beef marinated in teriyaki sauce, pork sautéed in ginger sauce, and vegetable tempura.
Ranked first of 177 Zagat rated sushi restaurants, Takara Japanese Restaurant’s sushi bar showcases Sho’s knack for marrying unique flavors, as tasted in the Love lobster roll, whose spicy mayo adds a tangy zest to sweet crustacean flavors. Rather than swallowing a television remote, diners can mute growling stomachs with the Oz roll’s blend of tuna and buttery avocado sliced with laser-like precision. Takara Japanese Restaurant offers catering for private and holiday events, please contact for more information.
My favorite sushi restaurant, food is amazing. Sho is a master!Don Kurfurst, 3/28/12
the specialty roll that has spicy tuna atop each piece of a spicy tuna roll was one of the best things I have ever eaten. Compliments to the chefs!Chris Pinola, 6/19/12
