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 $12, you get $25 worth of Japanese cuisine, sushi, and drinks at Kansha Restaurant.
Kansha fuses traditional Japanese dishes with Hawaiian influences to create a feast-worthy fusion, accented by sushi and specialty platters. Gently stoke the stomach furnace with miso soup, salad, and hot tea––all included as a precursor to a house specialty such as tonkatsu ($10.75), mouthwatering morsels of deep-fried pork. Or, teach timid taste buds how to swim by tossing them into the deep end of a bowl of Kansha saimin, which pairs fish cake, mushrooms, cabbage, and green onions with a protein of the customer's choice and presents it in a steaming cauldron of miso, shoyu, or plain broth ($8.50–$10.50). Fried rice can be found loaded with chicken ($9.50), beef ($9.50), seafood ($10.50), or veggies ($9), as gohan-mono (rice dishes) toss the toothsome grains beneath a pork cutlet and eggs (oyaku don, $9.50), or tempura-style shrimp and vegetables (vegetable don, $9).
An expansive sushi menu provides the opportunity to challenge taste muscles with maritime amalgamations, such as jalapeño rolls stuffed with salmon and spicy yellow tail and doused in hot sauce ($10.95). I Love Geisha platters honor their namesake art form by making tongues dance for a lineup of crab meat, salmon, tuna, avocado, and barbecued eel ($12.95 for eight pieces), and the sushi deluxe meal ($19.75) pairs a california roll with nine other varieties to form a lunch big enough for any seafood fan or 10 very tiny whales.
