Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electrical sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Pick up the right tools for authentic eats with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Japanese fare at Chiyo Sushi.
The chefs at Chiyo Sushi offer a menu that’s crammed with more than 100 traditional and specialty sushi rolls, as well as authentic Japanese entrees. Tongues hop onto the tuna-surfboard appetizer ($6) to catch waves of spicy tuna, avocado, and fried zucchini or scoop up the pizza sushi’s crispy tortillas layered with tuna, mayo, and cheese ($9). Diners can pinch two pieces of crab sushi ($3.50) with chopsticks before they pinch back, or delve into the tasty depths of the six-piece shrimp sushi roll ($4). Patrons can also explore traditional Japanese entrees, such as the tangy chicken teriyaki ($8). Japanese paintings adorn the eatery’s walls, depicting valiant samurai and knock-knock jokes written in calligraphy, and guests relax sidled next to prim tables in the many-windowed dining area.
Chiyo Sushi's talented chefs prepare more than 100 familiar Japanese eats such as teriyaki and salmon nigiri as well as dishes that make use of more inventive ingredients such as monkfish liver, sea urchin, and live scallops. The bill of fare contains multitudes, from delicate sashimi to crispy tempura to savory udon soup. Diners populate tables at lunch and dinner, sandwiched between prints of kimono-clad nobles that adorn the walls and broad, tree-framed windows that allow fresh air in and soy sauce-dwelling demons out.
