Like the confrontational work of an avant-garde artist, sushi’s rawness makes it unsuitable for display on living-room walls. Consume edible masterpieces with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine and beverages at Hikari Japanese Steakhouse in Overland Park.
As dazzled diners look on, Hikari's expert chefs forge thrilling culinary creations with an electrifying display of knife skills and grill mastery. The dinner menu eases taste buds into a gustatory glow with offerings including a crusty, golden sextet of gyoza fried pork dumplings ($4.95) and spicy crab salad ($4.95).
A throng of entrees, each flanked by a delicate onion soup, shrimp appetizer, ginger salad, and fried-rice entourage, includes time-tested samurai fuel such as teriyaki chicken ($12.95) and scallop and crabmeat ($23.95). Elite sushi-roll units perform a delectable amphibious assault on taste buds, splashing onto tongue terrain as the sunset roll, a scrumptious collaboration of salmon and avocado ($5.75 each), or the yummy roll, an tripartite alliance of tempura shrimp, crabmeat, and eel sauce ($8.95/roll). Sake and plum wines warm up cool sushi scarfers, and Japanese beers, including Sapporo and Kirin, soothe singed steak eaters.
Hikari, one of the oldest Japanese steakhouses in Johnson County, also boasts a lunch menu replete with many of the teriyaki, sushi, and nigiri options available to evening eaters. The lunch menu adds a selection of bento boxes ($5 each), including staples such as General Tso's chicken and teriyaki steak, both teamed up with steamed rice, salad, crab rangoon, and three california-roll pieces, one for each of the state’s three residents.
- We all had a great time & loved our meals -- even my five year old niece, who doesn't like anything. – Andrea D., Yelp, 11/1/10 *My family just love the food there and they have steak for the kids and myself, and great sushi for my wife who prefers lighter food. The Tsunami Roll and the Catapillar Roll even got my kids try [sic] sushi for the first time. – bobby, Urbanspoon
