The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale Asian-fusion fare at Little Buddha, located inside the Palms Casino Resort. This Groupon is not valid with prix fixe menus, happy hour, or other offers.
Little Buddha plies patrons with a cornucopia of traditional Chinese dishes, inventive sushi, and pan-Asian fare influenced by the subtle French flavors of its sister site, the award-winning Buddha Bar in Paris, France. Sidle up to the extensive sushi bar for a fresh sashimi assortment ($22) or one of the specialty rolls, such as the Little Buddha, with shrimp tempura, spicy crab mix, fresh-water eel, avocado and sprouts ($16), or the Fantasy, loaded with king crab, cucumber, halibut, and aojiso vinaigrette ($18). Diners in search of meatier fare can traverse farm and field with spicy "angry-roasted" jidori chicken ($26) or slow-braised kobe-beef short ribs ($30) before topping their meal off with mochi ice cream, a popular Japanese dessert fashioned from pounded sticky rice ($9).
With its opulent Asian-influenced décor, international beats, and full bar, Little Buddha cultivates a colorful lounge feel amidst the aromas of a solid, belly-filling eatery. Its extensive wine list boasts New and Old World vintages and a premium sake selection, and master mixologists craft perfectly potent concoctions such as the Godzilla, a furious fusion of Jagermeister, banana liquor, Red Bull, and pineapple that emboldens its drinkers with the ability to crush pushy suitors and Mothra in one laser-beamed glance.
