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 $20, you get $40 worth of sushi, hibachi-grilled fare, and drinks at Kujaku Japanese Restaurant in Stamford.
Kujaku's chefs dish out a savory menu of sizzling meats, fish, and tofu, as well as an authentic selection of sushi. After the summer roll ($8.95) delivers a delicate rice-paper package filled with eel, avocado, and crab in a creamy thai chili sauce, crunch into a sturdier parcel packed with deep-fried pork cutlet covered in katsu sauce ($12.50). The ginger-dressed grilled-chicken salad offers eaters a better way to combine the benefits of protein and vegetables than milking asparagus or massaging sore biceps with cauliflower. Other grill ambassadors include a cadre of grilled sea scallop, salmon, and shrimp in a spicy ginger-mustard sauce ($15.95), and the eel and avocado don ($15.25) represents one of many sushi entrees, rolls, and à la carte options. Call ahead on weekends to stake out a grill-side spot or oversee the mismatched duel between blade and roll at the sushi bar.
- Excellent hibachi and sushi. – Adam S., Yelp, 10/11/06
