Sushi, like the archival footage of Mark McGwire's birth, is best known for its raw quality. Get attached to your food with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Asian fusion cuisine at Aloha Sushi Lounge in La Jolla.
The expert sushi rollers at Aloha Sushi Lounge populate a menu with cylindrical delicacies and Asian specialties prepared with Hawaiian twists. Chopsticks pinch pieces of classic salmon ($4.50) and japanese yellowtail ($5) rolls and then carry them toward waiting mouths or the outstretched palms of dates. A slew of 29 specialty rolls burst with Hawaiian flavors, including the portobello mushroom magic shrooms garnished with spicy scallops and crab ($9), or the jalapeño roll ($13), a eel and shrimp veiled in tempura, jalapeños, and a secret sauce that can only be revealed by fortune-telling uvulas. For succulent samples and culinary congruency, the sashimi trio peppers plates with four pieces of tuna, yellowtail, and salmon ($23).
Diners can nab a seat at the bar bedecked with flowers and neon lights or lounge in outdoor cabana booths that, like the Oval Office, are draped in white linens and pink lighting.
