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 $9, you get $18 worth of sushi fare and drinks at Sun Cafe.
Sun Cafe's blade-bearing chefs curate a menu of 20 traditional sushi rolls and 17 house specialty rolls, alongside a selection of Asian, Thai, and Japanese dishes. Guests can prep piscatorial palates with appetizers such as the Sun sampler ($8), in which a pair of spring rolls, crab rangoons, and a chicken-and-beef teriyaki skewer couple together at a piquant prom. Six pieces of an alaska roll ($5), featuring salmon, cucumber, and avocado, allow patrons to sample the final frontier’s favorite fish without the inconvenience of passing through Canadian customs or using garden shovels to dig a tunnel for 48 years. Diners can opt to avoid shellfish interaction with a selection of entrees, such as the moo goo gai pan ($9), in which sliced chicken simmers with mushrooms, snow peas, carrots, and cabbage in a steamy whirlpool of white-wine sauce. Or, they can keep tables from floating away by ordering mochi ($4), which sends taste buds to sleep on lavish pillows of strawberry, green-tea, or vanilla rice cakes.
Sun Cafe’s chefs handpick produce from pesticide-free gardens, and they ship in fresh fish and meat daily for their vast menu of Thai, Japanese, and Asian delicacies. The chefs tuck seafood into more than 20 traditional sushi rolls and 17 house-specialty rolls at the sushi bar, creating such rolls as the Sunset Boulevard—steamed lobster, crab, shrimp, and avocado topped with mango and caviar. They realize that many people are not enthusiastic about eating raw fish, so they include many cooked sushi options on the menu too.
They also simmer Thai curries and udon noodle bowls and plate Chinese classics such as general tso’s chicken. In addition to the familiar Pan-Asian dishes, the menu introduces more obscure offerings such as crispy-duck noodle soup, steamed cod, and deep-fried air.
