Before sushi restaurants, people craving fresh fish camped inside whale bellies, ready to wrap rice and seaweed around catchings before escaping through the blowhole during a wasabi sneeze. Discover a more pleasant way to fish for flavor with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and other contemporary Asian fare at In The Raw Sushi's Oklahoma City location.
Traditional and nouveau Japanese dishes decorate In The Raw's cool, contemporary ambiance to comprehensively cater to romantic rendezvous. The menu features numerous fresh sushi options, from traditional cylinders such as the california roll ($5.50) to innovative options such as the fiery Volcano roll ($15.25), which incites eruptions of taste-bud applause with deep-fried shrimp, avocado, cream cheese, and jalapeño, all topped with scallops cooked in a spicy sauce. Less-bundled bites include the pork-and-sesame noodle bowl ($11) and an 8-ounce pepper fillet paired with wasabi mashed potatoes and asparagus ($28). Tempura-fried bananas ($6.50) and chocolate or vanilla crème brûlée ($6.50) help meals end happily, rather than with petty squabbles over whose napkin is the largest.
