If humans are mostly made of water and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Japanese fare at Sushi Gin, an Overland Park Asian restaurant that 10Best editors named one of the best in KC.
At Sushi Gin, traditional Japanese fare, a sushi bar brimming with fresh tempura, sashimi, and teriyaki, and vegetarian dishes combine to create a perfect storm of fresh Eastern eats that rain the finest fish, rice, and noodle flavors upon tongues. Miso soup will preheat your appetite for salmon teriyaki—sautéed salmon slathered in the restaurant’s specialty house-made teriyaki sauce and served with rice ($15.95). The Fire Cracker roll is an explosion of white and red tuna, avocado, cucumber, and a spicy red sauce ($8.95) that, unlike an actual firecracker, won’t damage a G.I. Joe doll who bivouacs near it. Dive into the full dinner menu to discover all its delights. Making reservations, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, is recommended.

Sushi Gin Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Bar
After moving to Kansas City from Tokyo in the early 90s, Saeko Tsunashima wanted to create a restaurant similar to her favorites in Japan. She combined her original recipes, many of which were inspired by her mother, and enlisted culinary expertise from bona fide sushi chefs to create the menu at Sushi Gin Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Bar. Along the way, she developed considerable sushi skills, and regularly unveils her flashy knifesmanship at the sushi bar. To keep the gustatory experience fresh, she consistently creates new menu items, many of which pay homage to cities or natural phenomena, such as the New Orleans roll, the tornado roll, or the That One Time it Rained Halibut roll.
