Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish had been served folded over rice and woven into a basket. Take advantage of cylindrical technology with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of sushi and Singaporean specialties at Singapore’s Grill and Sushi Bar in New London.
Fresh slices sashimi-grade fish take center stage on Singapore’s Grill and Sushi Bar’s menu, as traditional dishes from the Malaysian peninsula serenade diners with savory songs of noodles and spare ribs. Like a polar bear's jewelry box, the restaurant’s sushi case shimmers with rows of translucent gems of salmon, tuna, and eel. Sample succulent morsels of crab clasping creamy bites of avocado in the scallion-dappled Osumo maki roll ($11.50), or witness maritime harmony with a fresh vegetable-chaperoned trio of tuna, salmon, and asparagus in the crunchy Dynomite maki roll ($10.50). Singapore rice noodles wrap their slender, glossy tendrils around spicy mango chicken, shrimp, and fresh vegetables ($18.95), and grilled pineapple chicken lounges on a bed of steamed rice and veggies ($17.95). Sambai specialties mix it up with fluffy beds of fragrant curry rice, couching vegetables and shrimp or pork, all doused in homemade seafood sauce ($18.95) like a sea captain preparing for a date with a mermaid.
