Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish had been served folded over rice and woven into a basket. Revel in the roll with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh sushi, hibachi fare, and more at Shogun Japanese and Chinese Bistro in St. Clair Shores.
Swarmed by the sizzling symphonies of hibachi tables, chefs twirl gleaming utensils in performances that yield customer amusement and a hefty menu of grilled-fresh entrees. For the Sapporo special ($22.75), comestible construction workers bridge the gap between land and sea by introducing tender scallops to juicy filet mignon for a casual dinner date. The teriyaki chicken ($13.50) bubbles atop the grill in a pool of sauce before practicing dives into open mouths and fresh sushi options such as the Alaskan Pipe roll ($8.50)—bundling spicy tuna, crab, creamy avocado, cucumber, and sweet sauce—invite tickles from playful chopsticks. To sample many rolls, throw your arm around the nearest stranger and get to know each other over one of several sushi-combination platters.
Shogun Japanese and Chinese Bistro
At Shogun Japanese and Chinese Bistro, cooks amass an army of fresh ingredients to fire up on a griddle at diners’ tables. Here, shrimp, calamari, and sirloin morph into hibachi-style dinners as they sizzle in the heat and tumble through the air with the help of the chef’s spatula. Fresh fish and rice converge to form sushi such as the crispy roll #24, whose salmon and yellowtail flaunt a sauce as sweet and spicy as a valentine from a jalapeño pepper. The Chinese section of the menu brims with house specialties such as beef with stir-fried string beans and family-style meals of shrimp kow and almond chicken.
