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 $7, you get $15 worth of Japanese fare at Mizu Sushi Bar in Newark.
The sushi chefs of Mizu Sushi Bar slice and roll high-quality ingredients into a menu of specialty rolls and Japanese treats. The mix-and-match nigiri and sashimi menu gives guests pure bites of exactly what they crave, whether it's octopus ($1.75), yellowtail ($2), or a combination of each fish molded into a bust of Theodore Roosevelt. A cooling cucumber-wrapped Summer roll ($10.95) pairs tuna and salmon with a crunchy bundle of seaweed salad and daikon, and the Dancing eel roll ($8.95) contrasts eel's smoky flavor with avocado and cream cheese. The vegetarian udon ($7.95) chases away both hunger groans and vitamin deficiencies with cabbage, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and scallions piled atop the traditional tangle of udon noodles.
