What You'll Get
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 $32 worth of sushi and more at Asuka in Morrisville.
Asuka specializes mainly in Japanese cuisine, but it also infuses its extensive menu with a variety of choices drawn from Korean, Chinese, and Thai culinary traditions. Sate a gale-force grumble storm with a plentiful entree such as the coconut flounder ($15.95), breaded, deep fried, and glazed with pineapple salsa, or the char-grilled rib-eye teriyaki ($17.95), marinated and glazed. If meat isn't your cup of protein, try a plate of tofu steak ($13.95), lightly dusted and seasoned, deep fried, and topped with sweet chili sauce, or delve into a magical undersea kingdom with Asuka's wide variety of sushi and rolls. Impress fashion critics by donning the sake don ($18.95), a chef's presentation of salmon sashimi on a bed of sushi rice, or the unagi don ($17.95), eel spread over a bed of steamed rice. Alternately, enter the green-dragon roll ($12.95), which welcomes taste buds with spicy fish salad and cream cheese wrapped with avocado and topped with masago wasabi and hot sauce.
Although this villa of victuals has been serving the greater Cary, Morrisville, and RTP areas for the past nine years, it has recently undergone a slew of renovations to perk the urbanity meter past critical mass. Dim, evocative lighting, venetian blinds, warmly hued walls, and sleek table settings characterize the ultra-modern aesthetic, while a sushi and cocktail bar add a social vibe to the deliciously scented air. Ride in as a lone ranger and comingle with locals over a dainty potable, or bring along an entire chest of Russian nesting dolls to gobble up roll within roll within roll.
This Groupon is not valid with buy-one-get-one rolls or other offers.
