Mouths love to travel, which is why they speak more foreign languages than the ears, and why most globes have bite marks where Chile once was. Satisfy your maw's globetrotting urges with today's Groupon to Kushi Yama Asian Tapas & Grill. Choose between the following options:
- For $13, you get one appetizer and two lunch entrees (up to a $26 value). Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The chefs at Kushi Yama Asian Tapas & Grill prepare a menu of fusion cuisine starring modern takes on traditional Japanese fare. Whet appetites with a piquant starter such as grilled spicy beef reclining atop a salad of lettuce, cucumber, and red onion and adorned with drizzles of garlic-lime dressing and jasmine-rice powder ($8). Or, keep it raw with a spicy tuna roll ($5), which hugs minced tuna, cucumber, and avocado in a zesty embrace enlivened by a medley of seven spices and an optional garter belt. Once appetites and pre-meal conversation have been thoroughly revved-up, move on to the main meal event with options such as kung pao chicken with onions and bell peppers, roasted peanuts, and scallions in a garlic-soy glaze ($14.95), or lightly breaded shrimp in a sweet honey-peach sauce ($16.95). Groupon holders can also opt to apply the value of this deal toward more expensive entrees by paying the difference, allowing them a taste of house specialties such as steamed Chilean sea bass with ginger and bok choy ($21.95), or roasted prime-beef fillet ($30.95) served with compound butter, sautéed squash, steamed glutinous rice, and asparagus with excellent posture.
