What You'll Get
When it comes to Japanese food, you’re at the mercy of the maki master. Pull back on the epicurean reins with today’s Groupon: for $10, you’ll get $20 worth of design-your-own-sushi available for dine-in or carryout at How Do You Roll? on West Second St. Enjoy sushi in a new way by living out your childhood fantasies of having a sushi roll made to your specifications. This Groupon expires two months from the purchase date.
HDYR's make-your-own-maki menu succeeds where make-your-own-pharmaceuticals failed by giving you options for putting your own spin on seaweed-wrapped rice wheels of fish (or vegetable, chicken, or beef) goodness. Start by selecting either a traditional (seaweed, $3.95) or modern (soy, $4.95) casing, then match it with a meat (11 options; $1.95 for beef, $2.50 for unagi, $2.95 for regular or spicy tuna). Next, add vegetables (12 options; pick up to three, additional are 50 cents each) and specialty toppings (seven options, including crunchy tempura, sesame seeds, and chili powder). You can also order sidekicks, such as seaweed, cucumber, or calamari salads ($1.50–$2.50), edamame ($0.99), miso soup ($0.99), or pre-concocted rolls such as the California ($5.95), Philadelphia ($6.95), or unagi ($6.95).
Unlike hamburgers and pizza, you can’t delicately extract the undesired ingredients from a sushi roll without mangling your maki. How Do You Roll provides a way to make sure your sushi is entirely stomach-pleasing. Also, unlike your traditional fast-food options, sushi is good for you and packs powerful health benefits in every bite.
