The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and Japanese cuisine at Katana Sushi & Grill in Fountain Hills.
Katana’s chefs slice and simmer fresh ingredients to create a menu filled with classic Japanese cuisine, including more than 55 sushi rolls. Spicy crab and shrimp tempura twine amid the aromatic spice of fiery mayo and sweet-chili sauce in the October Fest roll ($14.95), served on a traditional sushi plate or atop a folded bundle of lederhosen. The Flaming Dragon roll’s colorful five-fish spine curves gracefully across the plate beneath the furious blue and red dance of vodka on fire ($15.95), and the house’s signature Katana roll lazes in a deep-fried shell filled with tuna, salmon, white fish, and avocado doused in unagi sauce ($9.95). Flame-licked fare such as the sizzling yakiniku beef couples marinated beef with piping-hot onions and yakiniku sauce, served alongside miso soup, a house salad, and steamed rice ($16.95).
Exposed-brick walls run elegantly alongside Katana’s tables like greyhounds dressed in spats, and warm lighting glints off the polished bar and the whirling cutlery of the deft sushi chefs.
