After centuries in obscurity, Japan gained national attention when people realized its noodles could be used to predict the future and heal shark bites. Dig into multipurpose cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and drinks at Kamon Sushi Restaurant.
Kamon serves fresh-made sushi and an eccentric menu of Japanese dishes in a modern, colorful atmosphere. Peruse the lunch menu to find sushi combos ($7.95–$12.95) and hot dishes such as vegetable udon ($7.95) and sesame-battered white-meat chicken donburi ($7.95). The dinner menu lives up to its name by offering dinner, including beer-battered miso-marinated fish and chips ($9.95) and slow-braised Kamon curry with basil cream ($12.95).
Sit alongside the eatery's long sushi bar and watch as elaborately decorated sushi varieties are prepared with seafood, rice, and a confetti of colorful toppings. Or, munch your maki at one of the elegant eatery's private tables, which include private chairs and private jets. The professional sushi chefs prepare the yakuza roll ($12.95) by topping hamachi, spicy tuna, and avocado with albacore and unagi. Fire fanatics will enjoy the Tune 'Em Up roll, a torched-shrimp tempura roll wearing a hat of spicy tuna and sauces ($10.95).
- The sushi's quite exceptional and I love that the place is quiet enough to be able to easily carry a conversation those around you. – Eric F., Yelp, 1/29/11
- The secret within the secret, though, is the appetizer menu. I've never left one of their miso garlic scallops on the plate, and the firecracker tuna is an awesome new take on the spicy tuna dish. – Lauren C., Yelp, 8/2/10
