Today's Groupon rewrites the rules of curbside cuisine with $10 worth of sushi for $5 from Sushi A-Go-Go, a specialized cash-and-Groupon-only sushi trailer serving up made-to-order fresh rolls that are 10 times more delicious and 100 times more reputable than that Craigslist ad offering to bring you sushi in bed.
Recently parked in a new location, the steerable eatery is equipped with all the essentials of a Japanese sushi bar: customized cabinets, refrigerated prep-table, intense AC, and super-fresh fish. Relying on secret family recipes and the best short-grain rice available, the owners created the mobile maki station with hopes of squashing sushi's fancy rep and making quick, casual rolls for the masses to eat or use for Parcheesi pieces.
At the ordering window, you'll find an impressive offering of meals on wheels, including everything from your standard miso ($1.50) to more inventive swamp roll ($5.50) with pickled okra and kicky Tabasco crawfish. Slide into nearby picnic tables and round out the affordable experience with mochi ice cream for dessert ($1.50).
Hot dogs and Drumsticks usually dominate street carts, and it can be hard to find healthy grub on the go. Get this Groupon or two for an affordable and mobile way to enjoy sushi. Sushi-A-Go-Go is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. or until it runs out of deliciousness. Sunday it opens the window at noon and closes when either 6 p.m. or sushi depletion occurs. Call ahead to make sure there are enough rolls to sate your sushi-chamber.
