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: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi and Japanese fare at Samurai Japanese Cuisine.
Samurai lavishes guests with a trove of authentic, fresh Japanese fare. Feel free to colonize an unsettled table and dig into a bounty of starters such as kimchi salmon miso soup ($6), tofu salad ($4.95), or sushi-bar appetizers such as black-pepper tuna tataki ($7.95) and the classic spicy tuna roll ($5.95). À la carte savories such as scallops ($2.75) and eel ($3), like beakers and casino winnings, are easily transportable by chopstick. Culinary investors also bank on specialty rolls such as the Williamsburg roll, a mix of tuna, cucumber, and avocado topped with eel ($12.95), or bet their appetite on the crispy oyster roll crafted with avocado and scallion wrapped with a soy-bean sheet roll ($10). Outside the cylindrical realm, diners can occupy bored silverware thanks to bowls of vegetable udon soup ($8.95) and beef teriyaki ($15.95).
Samurai's simple yet inviting interior surrounds guests in dark wood accents and warm orange walls tinged with plenty of natural light. Visitors can feel free to study their chef's dicing techniques at the polished sushi bar and compare notes and trapper-keepers with friends while cozying up at a table.
