Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish had been served folded over rice and woven into a basket. Unroll a tapestry of flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of maki, sashimi, and Japanese cuisine at Kamiza Sushi in Brookline.
Kamiza Sushi's chefs have dreamt up more than 50 creative maki rolls to fill an expansive menu of fresh seafood and hot Japanese cuisine. In the kitchen, nimble hands sprinkle multicolored roe atop a Color Mountain maki plump with shrimp tempura and king crab ($13.95), and bundle sweet potato and cream cheese to create a Fire maki that showcases spicy crab and roe baked with cheese ($9.25). Chopsticks forage for spicy lobster morsels in a salad decked with apple, avocado, and cucumber ($9.99) before wandering onto other tables to gather rolls for their growing stockpile. Dining partners can pick favorites from sashimi deluxe platters ($27.95), with one tasting slivers of king salmon, super white tuna, and whitefish as the other nibbles shrimp tempura or tuna maki and dunks donuts hidden inside coat pockets into bowls of miso soup. Lunch specials ($9.99–$13.99) pair soup and salad with hearty dishes, such as soba-noodle soup or teriyaki beef, to lure diners at midday.
