Sushi rolls, like gifts, usually come wrapped and can get a mailman fired when they appear in a mailbox three months after a birthday. Enjoy life's finer wrapped things on time with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Asian Cuisine at Hana Matsuri Sushi in Westminster.
The deft culinary artists at Hana Matsuri Sushi dice fresh seafood and vegetables into enticing fresh sushi and Japanese fusion dishes. Nibble crisp nigiri, sashimi, and rolls from the restaurant's sushi menu, including fatty tuna ($11) and Big Daddy rolls stuffed with shrimp tempura, kani, and avocado, then patiently baked by apron-adorned dragons ($13 for eight pieces). Twenty-eight nigiri and sashimi rolls populate the menu, which accommodates vegetarian guests with a collection of six meatless sushi plates.
Table tenants can brandish forks to disassemble selections from the lunch menu, such as thinly sliced red snapper doused in piquant ponzu sauce ($11), or point eyes at the dinner menu, which teems with Asian-infused tapas such as lamb carpaccio ($10) and dulcet miso black cod ($11). Diners can nosh comfortably atop plush chairs at Hana Matsuri Sushi's sleek sushi bar as chefs roll fresh sushi and attentive servers perform personalized post-meal rap ballads.
In order to consistently impress guests, the chefs at Hana Matsuri work closely with fish markets to procure the freshest seafood for their sashimi, nigiri, and maki creations. Once their grocery baskets are filled, they head to the kitchen to start rolling rice around interesting ingredient combinations such as the Hamachi Orange roll's mix of spicy shredded yellowtail, orange wedges, masago, jalapeño, and mango sauce. Beyond the sushi bar, the chefs create an array of hotter Japanese dishes—including steaming udon soups and teriyaki meats—for lunch and dinner.
