Once mastered, chopsticks are the most manageable eating utensils, unlike forks, which get mangled in the dishwasher, or fingers, which get lost in the mouths of teething sock puppets. Eat easily with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Asian fare and drinks at Lucky Sushi House in St. Peters.
Wielding fresh ingredients and traditional recipes, the expert chefs at Lucky Sushi House placate hunger growls with menus of both authentic Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Diners can maneuver chopsticks around bite-size morsels from a full sushi list ($2.99–$9.99), which boasts thin-roasted-eel sashimi ($5.99), arctic-clam nigiri ($3.99), and more specialty rolls than a paper-towel convention. The lineup of Chinese entrees treats guests to six kinds of fried rice, loading up stomachs with servings of beef ($7.50) or veggies ($5). For nonmeaty fare, chefs unleash the hunger-fighting power of broccoli in garlic sauce ($6), which adorns plates alongside beds of steamed rice. Between bites of Asian cuisine, diners can sip potable brews such as merlot and Budweiser, or free genies trapped inside fortune cookies.
Lucky Sushi House
The chefs at Lucky Sushi House reach beyond the borders of their eatery's name by serving a menu that not only features sushi, but also Japanese teriyaki dishes and Chinese staples such as orange chicken. Behind the sushi bar, chefs stack morsels of eel nigiri and roll combinations of crab, avocado, and tuna into cozy cocoons of rice. While admiring the decorative fans on the walls or peering into the restaurant's aquarium to check for messages in bottles, patrons can also crunch into squid-tempura rolls, split a plate of pot stickers, and swig Harbin Lager imported from China.
