Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electrical sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for sushi consumption. Get the right tools for authentic eats with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of sushi and Japanese cuisine at Koto Buki in Sylvania.
Within the confines of its minimalistic wood-paneled eatery, Koto Buki assembles an expansive menu of authentic Japanese eats. The chefs cleverly encase shrimp ($14.95) and vegetables ($11.95) inside crispy tempura shells to give them a crunchy casing and hide them from tableside dinner bandits. Teriyaki dishes flaunt either chicken ($14.25) or steak ($19.95), and the long list of traditional sushi coils together fresh fillings that include sweet shrimp, white tuna, and scallop. Cooks also whip up specialty rolls, including the Toledo roll, which combines eel, shrimp, crab, and spicy tuna ($12.95).
Exposed wood beams and shoji-screen-like latticework re-create the atmosphere of a traditional Japanese house inside Koto Buki's dining room. The cuisine also keeps it authentic—udon noodles, curry rice, stir-fried veggies, and teriyaki sauce serve as the base for a choice of meats, and shy vegetables hide inside fried batter in tempura dinners. Like the butlers who prepare Richie Rich's Christmas gifts to his pet shark, chefs expertly slice and wrap dozens of sushi choices, from traditional slabs of sashimi on beds of rice to inventive specialty rolls with names such as Crazy Boy, Ninja, Vegas, and Kiss of Fire.
