What You'll Get
If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Japanese cuisine at Azuma on the Lake in Sugarland.
The youngest member of the Azuma Group family of restaurant siblings (including Soma, Kata Robata, and other Azuma locations in the Houston area), this Sugarland sushi chateau crafts inventive Japanese meals with and without the preparatory benefits of flames. At dinner, chilled culinary quests start with truffle tuna poke ($13) on seaweed salad seasoned with nori goma and truffle oil. Diners demanding cooked fare can spear tiny trident-fulls of the Ocean and the Orzo ($22), peppered shrimp and scallops symbolically swimming in a sea of orzo pasta among roasted corn, asiago cheese, and applewood bacon buoys. Sushi chefs use honed knives and years of rolling sausages up in pancakes to create the intelligently designed God Made Man/Man Made Roll ($13), spicy salmon and cucumber in a blanket of avocado and grape tomato, and the Deadliest Catch pairs king crab and tuna with avocado, tobiko, and old bay seasoning ($18). Midday meal cravings are met with Azuma’s lunch options such as sushi combos featuring three pre-selected handrolls with an arachnid-free spider roll ($12.95) or freshly-prepared bento boxes ($10.95) filled with pork katsu, tempura shrimp, chicken skewers, and more.
Patrons balance souls along with flavors in the Zen-inspired room accented with warm colors and modern décor. Covered lights and a sprouting chandelier over the sushi bar illuminate edibles pieced together before guests’ eyes. Customers feed hungry eyes with sight-satiating lakeside views from the 50-seat patio or aerial views of other tables’ choices from the second-story dining balconies.
