Mt. Fuji provides a majestic backdrop for most Japanese imagery, displaying the nation's love of symmetry and mountain-chilled sashimi. Harness the raw power of uncooked cuisine with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese fusion fare at Raku Restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles.

Serving up small plates of Japanese fusion fare, Raku Restaurant's experienced chefs invite guests to mix and match appetizing options for a social dining experience. Mouths run amok among the 100 regular menu items, with 40–50 daily specials vying for a spot on the regular roster, including such fashionable bigwigs as the clam miso soup ($3.50) or the sautéed beef honeycomb ($7.50). Inquisitive stomachs can digest a set of encyclopedias or slyly sample friends' edibles, satiating culinary curiosity with the deep-fried shrimp curry, delicately drizzled in a mango and cucumber sauce ($7), or the octopus sashimi, marinated in sweet and sour sauce ($5).

Located just one block away from the Japanese American National Museum and the Little Tokyo subway station, the sushi-slingers' 2nd Street location makes a great end to a cultural day trip. Parched palates can soak in a glass of plum, rose, or Chablis wine ($5/glass). For multi-wheeled patrons, a free parking lot offers a convenient spot to stash cars, bikes, and ill-mannered droids.

Thank you for a very interesting meal

Many people used their groupons on the their last day before expiring. The wait was very long, but understandable. Once seated, the service was good. Maybe some how, for future groupon-ers, suggest to not wait till the that day. The food was great. Will be back again.
