Though mad scientists recommend sticking chopsticks into electric sockets, rational scientists know the utensils are better used for electrifying sushi consumption. Today's Groupon gives you the right tools for authentic eats: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi, noodles, and more at Oishi Maki Japanese Restaurant, located in Whitby. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only and is not valid toward the all-you-can-eat menu.
The friendly staff at Oishi Maki serves up authentic sushi, sashimi, maki, and more in the intimate eatery. Peruse the appetizers and start an oral trip to the island country with an order of mixed veggie tempura ($3.99) or load up on podded protein by splitting a bowl of salted edamame ($3.49) with a bean-loving date. Oishi Maki's extensive selection of simplistic hand roll, sushi, and sashimi options ($2.49+) showcases its fresh-from-the-sea finds, while specialty rolls swaddle the seafare with inventive accompaniments. The house-specialty Oishi Maki sushi roll ($4.99), with its homemade seafood salad, offers a delectable delicacy to serve to a date by the chopstickful, while a rice or noodle dish is sure to set off a flavour explosion that can be heard from the next province.
The friendly staff and cozy atmosphere at Oishi, with its minty-green walls and plush booths, make it an ideal place to spend an evening swooning over the succulent fruit of the sea as it swims into the mouth of you or your napkin’d neighbour. Call ahead to make a reservation.
