Fresh sushi requires three bites: one to catch the fish, one to eat it, and one to warn neighboring diners from getting too close to your plate. Chomp with abandon with today's Groupon to Go Sushi in Pacifica. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese fare and drinks for dinner from 3 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Japanese fare and drinks for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Go Sushi's menu thwarts hunger with a range of entrees, noodle bowls, and fresh fish. For dinner, guests can spear chopsticks into the deep-fried house tempura crunch roll ($8.99) or one of some 34 expertly shaped specialty rolls, such as the Go Sushi roll ($13.99), which tops a crispy tempura roll with mixed fish, or the Red Heart roll ($10.99) which loads its spicy tuna base with fresh ahi tuna and spicy sauce. Chefs pair udon, soba, or ramen noodles into steamy soups with a medley of ingredients including chicken ($8.50), beef ($8.99), or spicy seafood ($9.99) that add savory flavors to slurps.
For lunch, the kitchen springs forth chicken teriyaki ($8.50) doused with special house sauce and accompanied by white rice, green salad, and miso soup. In between bites, Japanese marble soda ($2.50) or house-made lemonade ($2.49 for 20 oz.) rinse palates clean just like a warm spring rain washing away evidence of a sidewalk-chalk melee.
There are certain accepted rules to constructing maki rolls: They must be round. They generally contain tuna and a handful of vegetables. Chefs at Go Sushi Japanese Restaurant try to throw those precepts out the window and let their imaginations run wild. They build the Arch roll—a deep-fried concoction of spicy tuna and cream cheese—into an actual arch, and they top the Firecracker roll with an explosion of crabmeat and tobiko the color of orange flames. The chefs even have fun naming their creations, such as the Lion King roll, the Black Widow roll, and the George roll, named for the president who famously chopped down his father's cherry tree to make souvenir chopsticks for the Marquis de Lafayette. Underneath the lighted orbs and Japanese lanterns that dangle from the dining-room ceiling, servers also deliver chicken or beef covered in teriyaki sauce or submerged in bowls of noodle soup.
