Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish had been served folded over rice and woven into a basket. Dine on cylindrical seafaring delights with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and drinks at Ebisu Sushi in Hillcrest.
Ebisu Sushi serves a menu of raw and flame-kissed fare in a chic setting. Warm up with an appetizer of edamame sautéed in garlic ($4), or wade utensils through a house salad topped with wakame seaweed ($6). Specialty rolls such as the Sixth Avenue, a cucumber wrapper snuggling a quintet of fishes including tuna, yellowtail, and salmon, fetchingly outfit bare palates ($14), and the vegetarian Enigma roll sports tempura fried broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, and a hint of curry and decodes cryptic messages ($9). Diners who prefer terra-firma tastes can sup on selections including the chicken katsu dinner, fried chicken tenderloins coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs, served with steamed rice and vegetables ($12). Festive guests may retire to the lounge in the rear of the restaurant on weekends to enjoy a full array of libations and the sonic stylings of a fully tuned DJ.
