Half the world’s sharks live longer than 100 years, a feat attributed to healthy all-sushi diets and the generous health-insurance packages offered by the producers of Jaws. Test out a deep-sea diet with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a dinner for two at Shiki Sushi, located inside the Ballston Common Mall in Arlington (up to a $65 total value). The prix fixe menu includes the following:
- Two bowls of miso soup (a $2 value each)
- One warm appetizer to share (up to a $7 value)
- Two special rolls (up to an $18 value each)
- Two classic maki (up to a $9 value each)
Hungry twosomes can warm up palates with organic tofu miso soup and a starter to share, such as a Dragon Taco, a combination of eel, cucumber, and salsa tucked inside a grilled-tortilla sleeping bag. The second course confronts chopsticks with two of more than 35 special rolls, including the Crunchy Infinity, a symphony of shrimp tempura, spicy crab, cucumber, masago, and crunch flakes, and the Out of Control, which attacks tongues with tuna, salmon, soft-shell crab, and spicy tuna, all drizzled with spicy aioli. Special rolls are then sidekicked by a choice of two classic maki such as California rolls, spicy-scallop rolls, and Spider rolls—deep-fried soft-shell crab dressed in the finest bright-orange masago overcoats.
