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 to Kinki, located on York Street. Choose from two dining options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner.
- For $13, you get $26 worth of lunch.
Named after the Kansai (or Kinki) region of Japan, Kinki is a modern dining lounge serving up sushi and Asian-fusion fare against a chic, urban backdrop. Sushi lovers will enjoy the devilish delights of Kinki's maki, such as the Black Widow roll ($16), a seductive web of cucumber, soft shell crab, tempura bits, tobiko, and wasabi mayo, and the Black Pearl ($14), plump with lightly braised scallops, masago, spicy mayo, avocado, and tempura bits wrested from the namesake ship’s scrappy ghost pirates. Each of Kinki's delicate dishes is accompanied by a detailed description of the ingredients and tastes to provide talking points for those who can’t tell the difference between raw fish and raw emotions. Kinki also offers six different types of sake to pair with the subtle Asian-fusion flavours.
Kinki Lounge Kitchen
Sushi is best served chilled, but Kinki Lounge Kitchen serves it up with a side of tasteful entertainment. The staff fosters a club-like atmosphere with DJs spinning records on the weekends and dancers and comics performing on the regular. None of this overshadows the sushi, which the chefs artfully turn into specialty rolls with playful names, such as the LMAO tempura stuffed with asparagus, bbq eel, cream cheese, masago, avocado, sesame, unagi sauce, and the Hot Latino comprised of smoked salmon, jalapenos poppers, avocado, sriracha, and kanikama. Specialty cocktails help wash it all down, pairing well with sushi or entrees with Asian flavors such as lychee, wasabi, and coconut.
