The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon to SakiTumi Grill & Sushi Bar in The Vista.
SakiTumi's menu of sushi and international grilled grub is crafted from fresh, high-quality ingredients. The culinary curtain rises for opening acts of edamame ($4), which recite moving soliloquies of soybeans and pink Hawaiian sea salt. The Cali roll ($5) serves up an exciting head-on collision between Osaki crab, avocado, and cucumber, while the rainbow roll ($15) presents a palatable spectrum of crab, salmon, and tuna that leads to golden gems of eel. The Fire Island roll on soy paper ($14) is a SakiTumi specialty, featuring tempura shrimp and avocado, topped with diced tuna pieces that are mixed with a sassy sriracha sauce. A variety of grilled goodies are sensitive to recovering fish fiends, who can sink their mouth bones into the meaty Kobe burger ($12) or brawl with the Sapporo steak ($18), which comes armed with asparagus spears and a mashed potato posse.
Guests are invited to break their breadless fare over a bottle of cold Saké while exchanging pleasantries in SakiTumi's big city environment, sans aggressive cabbies. A Blueberry Mojito made with Van Gogh Acai Blueberry Vodka can morph even the dullest dialogue into colorful commentary about favorite flowering plant genera.
- The scallops were four giant scallops, each on a bed of seaweed and seared to perfection. The combination of the fleshy, buttery meat of the scallop with its seared sesame edges, along with the pliant seaweed tendrils, made for a wonderful complement of textures. – Jess Desserts, Free-Times
- Great place to eat! The atmosphere is awesome. The sushi is always fresh and the presentation is perfect. I'm a big sushi fan and it is hands down the best in Columbia. – Blazinsaint, TripAdvisor
