Though sushi is normally reserved as a gourmet treat, it is also useful when strung on festive garlands, or as extra heel support in a new pair of running shoes. Find scrumptious support with today's Groupon at Osaka Sushi on Center Parkway. Choose between the following options:
• For $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks during dinner Sunday–Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday–Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks during lunch Monday–Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday–Sunday from noon to 2:30 p.m.
A glance at Osaka Sushi's extensive menu reveals a smorgasbord of authentic Japanese fare, such as the spider roll, which wrangles soft shell-crab and kani salad into a corral of cucumbers, sprouts, and sticky rice, or Ken's roll, a combination of fresh and spicy salmon with creamy avocado and spicy mayo ($11.95 each). Dinner entrees include beef sukiyaki ($15.75), a steaming bowl of umami swirling around clear flour noodles, mushrooms, tofu, vegetables, and a thin blanket of sliced beef perfect for comforting newborns with fully formed teeth. Or opt for a lunch outing with a tempura combo bento box, compartmentalizing crispy battered shrimp and vegetables with one of four sides ($8.95). Sushi specials such as a four-piece nigiri invite salmon, shrimp, and crab to bask in the glow of three bites of California roll ($9.95), a dense piece of maki that all other rolls in the sushiverse rotate around.
