The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature uncooked flavour. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi and complimentary green tea at Itto Sushi.
The chefs at Itto Sushi arrange beautiful plates of freshly prepared rolls and sashimi as well as noodles, rice bowls, and other specialties. Diners diving into the menu can initiate incisors with a dragon roll, a sturdy cylinder of barbecued eel and avocado in unagi sauce with fish eggs ($9.95/eight pieces). The sunrise roll marries a California roll with smoked salmon and peanut sauce ($7.95/eight pieces) to commemorate the sun's breath when it gets up in the morning, and a tempura box gently pets palates with miso soup, prawns, a three-piece veggie tempura roll, a choice of rolls and teriyaki meat, and a salad or gommae greens ($13.95). Itto Sushi stylizes noodles in thin rice sunomono, stir-fried yakisoba, and thick flour udon varieties, along with meats and vegetables cut into modern purse-shapes. Complimentary green tea keeps palates cleansed and brain cells articulating the merits of pyjama jeans to fellow diners.
Itto Sushi’s chefs aren't content to stop at regular sushi rolls. They're always looking for new ways to express their creativity, such as the edible cones that they painstakingly construct from sheets of dried seaweed. Inside each of these handmade cones, you're liable to find sliced salmon, spicy tuna, tobiko, and creamy avocado. Of course, the chefs still make the classic rolls as well as anybody, piling up to 55 pieces of sushi onto party trays.
