If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian fare and drinks at Kai Sushi Bar, located on Oak Street.
Talented chefs at Kai Sushi Bar build on traditional Japanese cooking methods to roll out an innovative menu of nigiri sushi, sashimi, and custom rolls. The sushi bar is an ideal vantage point to watch gourmands craft rolls renowned for their fresh fish filling and ability to soar through donut holes. Quell a quavering belly with the bacon and scallop rolls, an original Kai Sushi Bar concoction rolled with seasoned bacon and Japanese scallops in a tangy, spicy sauce ($9). Or, satisfy a protean palate with an assorted nigiri sushi plate ($24), sampling nine sushi selections that may include the ahi tuna, amaebi (sweet prawn), tamago (egg cake), or unagi (eel). Warmer, friendlier plates are available as well, such as the grilled and marinated garlic short ribs ($12) or the crab motoyaki ($15), fresh Dungeness crab baked in a light, creamy sauce.
More than a dozen types of carefully selected Japanese Sake, wines, and beers allow ample opportunities for solid-liquid mash-ups. Enjoy your pairings in Kai Sushi Bar's dining room, which features simple, Asian-inspired décor to complement a night of romantic staring contests.
- The sushi pieces were big portions like what you might find at Samurai Sushi. But I did like the quality and freshness of the sashimi that we ordered. Their menu of Japanese food is carefully selected of premium items ranging from hot dishes to rolls and scones. – Senses Inspired
- We started off with the Seafood Butteryaki...I suspected what it was, but imagine our delight when she explained that it was simply food cooked in butter, well a butter sauce, but still. The buttery flavour was super intense, but the sweetness of the prawns and scallop were not lost. – gracecheung604
