If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of Japanese fare at Nobu Gourmet Japanese Restaurant, located in Solana Beach.
This vestige of traditional cuisine presents an all-encompassing menu of delectable dishes made from a jet-setting fish set flown in directly from Japan. Commence consumption with time-honored entrees such as sunomono salad, a marinated milieu of seasoned seafood and cucumbers ($9.75), or a grilled salmon filet brushed with house-made teriyaki sauce ($18.75). Rice-wrapped sushi rolls ($5.50) stuffed with delicately diced albacore tataki ($5.50) please uppity palates, and inside-out rolls, such as the avocado-coated caterpillar roll ($12.25), transport diners to an alternate universe funded by Dwight D. Eisenhower. Walls adorned with Asian artwork, a regionally inspired dining room, and a marquee sushi bar support Nobu's traditionally inspired space, ideal for tipping back glasses of wine, beer, or imported sake.
