Mastering the use of chopsticks requires practice, agility, and an understanding of when to cease slapstick walrus impressions. Grasp a new skill with today’s Groupon to Irashiai Sushi Pub & Japanese Restaurant. Choose between the following options:
• For $17, you get $35 worth of Japanese fare and sushi during dinner.
• For $8, you get $16 worth of Japanese fare and sushi during lunch.
Irashiai's chefs parade an extensive menu of handmade sashimi, nigiri, and maki before diners in the restaurant's new location. Black-caviar sashimi ($3.50 for lunch, $3.75 for dinner) admits diners into elegance like a butler's secret handshake, and nigiri aficionados can sample sticky rice topped with such offerings as fried oyster ($2.00) or shrimp ($1.50). The island roll with panko fried tuna, citrus tobiko, and ponzu sauce ($6.95) tickles taste buds with tropical flavors without committing the faux pas of eating a lei. Yakisoba sautéed with thin egg noodles ($8.50) brims with chicken and veggies captured before they could set out on their morning swim, and a wide variety of bento boxes and lunch combos frolics beneath the restaurant's wasabi-green walls.
