Before seaweed was discovered as the ideal sushi wrapper, chefs had to sew tiny sleeping bags out of ginger or persuade grains of rice to hug indefinitely. Enjoy well-packaged eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi at Sushi-2-Go.
The chefs at Sushi-2-Go's new location on the University of Florida campus wrap both classic and signature eight-piece sushi rolls to remedy hollow tummies. Guests can unseal an appetizer of pork or vegetable dumplings ($3) after requesting that they be fried, steamed, or bedazzled with rock-candy rhinestones. Chopsticks airlift the tampa roll's ($5) fried tilapia and cucumber to tongue runways, and the Flying Dragon roll ($7) drapes bites of eel over crisp cocoons of imitation crab, avocado, cucumber, and fish roe. Feel free to take a sabbatical from being a carnivore by opting for the sweet-potato roll ($5), which nestles mushrooms and avocados against fried sweet potato and a sassy supplement of spicy sauce. Fried shrimp and smoked salmon wear caps of seaweed sprinkles in the Hulk roll ($7), which transforms into a green seaweed fist and upends bottles of soy sauce if angered.
