The chefs at Kushi Yama Asian Tapas & Grill prepare a menu of fusion cuisine starring modern takes on traditional Japanese fare. Whet appetites with a piquant starter such as grilled spicy beef reclining atop a salad of lettuce, cucumber, and red onion and adorned with drizzles of garlic-lime dressing and jasmine-rice powder ($8). Or, keep it raw with a spicy tuna roll ($5), which hugs minced tuna, cucumber, and avocado in a zesty embrace enlivened by a medley of seven spices and an optional garter belt. Once appetites and pre-meal conversation have been thoroughly revved-up, move on to the main meal event with options such as kung pao chicken with onions and bell peppers, roasted peanuts, and scallions in a garlic-soy glaze ($14.95), or lightly breaded shrimp in a sweet honey-peach sauce ($16.95). Groupon holders can also opt to apply the value of this deal toward more expensive entrees by paying the difference, allowing them a taste of house specialties such as steamed Chilean sea bass with ginger and bok choy ($21.95), or roasted prime-beef fillet ($30.95) served with compound butter, sautéed squash, steamed glutinous rice, and asparagus with excellent posture.
