A diet of raw foods grants humans the energy needed to win an arm-wrestling match against the Lincoln Memorial, once and for all. Build up your body's strength with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of sushi and traditional Japanese fare at Rocking Tanuki.

The raw-fish artisans at Rocking Tanuki reel in a traditional Japanese menu of seafood dishes crafted from fresh catches. Taste buds can gallivant through a mix of inventive starters such as the asparagus-bacon wraps ($4.25) before matching appetites against the Cherry Bomb specialty roll with deep-fried spicy tuna, jalapeño, and cream cheese ($7.25). For morsels hotter than a chimney wearing a tube top, the Firecracker roll proffers bites of shrimp tempura, crab, and cucumber topped with spicy tuna and green onions ($8.75). Diners can also dive fork-first into a seaweed salad ($3.95) or a calamari salad ($6.50) or enjoy meat-infused mastication with entrees such as ginger pork ($10.25). Rocking Tanuki's cranberry-colored walls, amber-tinted sconces, and pendulant art prints create a more pleasant setting for eating seafood than Blackbeard's rec room.

Arigato Japanese Restaurant

Arigato Japanese Restaurant serves feasts of ocean-fresh nigiri and maki, tender katsu cutlets, and umami noodle soups and rice dishes. At the open sushi bar, chefs create inventive rolls such as an albacore and serrano-pepper Pancho Villa or a deep-fried California roll. Diners delicately munch on morsels of tuna and smoked salmon nigiri or show off chopstick skills as they pick up the pieces of tempura, chicken, and beef intermixed with udon and ramen.

Good, not quite stellar.
Alaina G. · October 23, 2014
I thought the food and service was really good
Jennifer T. · October 20, 2014
Nice local spot in mission valley. Good sushi, very reasonable prices, only downside is they don't have a liquor license but that is not a very big deal to me.
