Eating with chopsticks is a tradition honored by Eastern cultures for its ability to show respect for food and loosen up hands for another honored tradition—secret handshakes. Limber up for optimal dexterity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese cuisine at Makiman Sushi. This Groupon is not valid on the lunch menu, however the dinner menu is served all day. Choose from the following locations: Center City, North Philadelphia, or Medford, New Jersey.
Makiman Sushi's artful chefs roll out a menu of tightly packed sushi bites and fresh Japanese fare for optimum palate pleasing. An array of traditional dishes, such as vegetable tempura ($7.50 for an appetizer, $13.95 for an entree) and chicken teriyaki ($13.95) are great for swathing tongues in elegant flavors or filling neighbors' empty pants pockets. The Popeye roll packs carrots, cucumber, and spinach in a punch-empowering rice embrace ($4.95), and torched squid tops spicy tuna, eel, and trounced linebackers in the fiery McNabb roll ($14.95). Grab a table for casual conversation or sidle up to the sushi bar to mentally design custom fish creations.
The chefs at Makiman Sushi believe in keeping their gills and their grills separate, serving both raw-fish fusion sushi and Korean stone-pot bi bim bop. Like the Warren G. Harding White House during Prohibition, the eatery is BYOB and patrons pour their favorite beverages while delving into orders of tuna nachos, a dish of fried wontons topped with raw tuna and a spicy sauce. Guests can kick back at a table or perch at a recently remodeled sushi bar to admire the sushi chefs' handiwork.
