The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi, Asian cuisine, and drinks at Je'Bon Sushi and Noodle on St. Marks Place.
The contemporary two-story dining room at Je'Bon stylishly hosts guests and the full offerings of an expertly prepared menu. Je'Bon's self-titled noodle dish ($14) comes with homemade fish noodles and is topped with shrimp, mussels, and chicken. Stately sushi rolls are handmade and include the California roll ($4) and the Alaska roll ($5). Work out chopstick-induced hand cramps during a refreshing non-water break with a signature Thai ice tea ($3) or a sake slush ($5). Or try the satay skewers (any six for $11) with your choice of protein, including chicken, pork, or squid, and served with Malaysian peanut sauce.
To improve the non-party reputations of Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, happy-hour specials last all three days, so pair your early-week or actual afternoon happy-hour meal with a special lychee saketini ($5.50, regularly $8) or Sapporo draft beer ($3.50 glass or $12 pitcher, regularly $5 glass and $16 pitcher). Tables of six or more can use two Groupons, so grab three tandem bikes and invite a party of five to cycle and dine.
Valid for dine-in only.

- Here it’s all about noodles, fabulous Chinese noodles—original ribbons and twistings, oddly delicious. – Gael Greene, New York
- One more dollar got us a seemingly bottomless bowl of tum yum soup, the spicy broth stocked with seafood, noodles and assorted vegetables. – Time Out New York
- First I thought this is just another sushi shop but after we tried their volcano roll and dragon roll, I changed my opinion. They were amazingly good. – AmyChan3, Citysearch
Jebon Sushi and Noodle
Noodles get the star treatment at Jebon Sushi and Noodle, headlining dishes such as luscious pork-belly ramen and Cantonese-style dumpling soup laden with egg noodles, bok choy, and a marinated egg. But noodles aren't the only reason to visit—the East Village eatery's chefs also roll fresh and innovative ingredients into rice-bound morsels behind an open-air sushi bar. The spot's club-inspired design is also a draw—neon light splashes the walls, and drinksmiths sling sake and cocktails from behind an illuminated blue bar.
In the Press
- New York magazine: "Here it’s all about noodles, fabulous Chinese noodles—original ribbons and twistings, oddly delicious."
- Time Out New York: "The space inspires sensory overload—blue bulbs fill the bathrooms, orange lights illuminate a brick wall—but it’s a small price to pay for inexpensive food this good."
