Before sushi restaurants became commonplace, sushi cravers camped inside whale bellies, ready to wrap rice and seaweed around the orca’s catchings before being shot out of the blowhole by a wasabi sneeze. Discover a more pleasant way to fish for flavor with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of sushi and other contemporary fare at In the Raw Sushi's Norman location.
In the Raw combines traditional and nouveau dishes and a cool, contemporary ambiance to comprehensively cater to romantic rendezvous. The menu features an array of fresh sushi options, from traditional cylinders such as the california roll ($5.25) to innovative options such as the fiery volcano roll, which incites eruptions of taste-bud applause with a combination of deep-fried shrimp, avocado, cream cheese, and jalapeño, all topped with scallops cooked in a spicy sauce ($14.95). Less-bundled bite-ables include the pork and sesame noodle bowl ($10.95) and an 8-ounce pepper filet paired with wasabi mashed potatoes and asparagus ($27.95). Tempura-fried bananas ($6.50), chocolate or vanilla crème brûlée ($6.50), and other desserts help meals end happily, rather than with petty squabbles over whose napkin is the largest.
