Raw fish, like snowballs, must be rolled with care before being thrown at a school superintendent for refusing to call a snow day. Enjoy well-crafted, conveniently projectile edibles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese fare at Makkara Sushi & Japanese Grocery.
The chefs at Makkara Sushi & Japanese Grocery bridge the distance between oceans and palates with a menu of hand-rolled sushi creations that range from vegetarian rolls to tender nigiri pieces. House specialties such as the futomaki roll ($10.99)—eight pieces of crab and barbecued eel tempered by sweet egg, shiitake mushrooms, and avocado—pacify hungry sea dragons clawing at the insides of bellies. Bigger bites include the california roll, an 11-piece behemoth built nearly to the scale of its namesake and stuffed with smoked salmon or shrimp ($6.99). Chopsticks fly as herbivores challenge each other to duels over prized vegetarian combinations that feature delectable half-rolls of pickled radish and scallions ($4.99). Chefs dispense with frilly accouterments when crafting nigiri pieces, opting instead to showcase thickly cut morsels of yellowtail tuna ($2.25 each).
