Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish was folded over rice and woven into a basket. Today's Groupon fills your food basket with $30 worth of creative sushi rolls and more at Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy for $13.
Emulating the success of the Tokyo-based Burger America Yeah Man eatery, the owners of Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy set up shop in Omaha to sling tasty rolled fishies and other culinary delights. Patrons can experience the flavor-retaining qualities of rice and its explosive taste properties when paired with a deliciously charged mixture of wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, and sake without the need of protective goggles or lead vests. Try a tasty specialty roll, which includes flavorful options such as the Captain Crunch Roll with shrimp tempura, crab, cucumber, and tempura crunches ($10.75), or the Caterpillar Roll with freshwater eel, cucumber, avocado, and sweet sauce ($11.95). Or opt for a dinner entree such as tonkatsu, fried pork tenderloin breaded in panko ($13.95), or a lunch of sansai udon, buckwheat noodles in hot broth with assorted mountain vegetables ($8.50). The drinks menu offers several cocktail, beer, wine, and sake options, though chicken-farm moonshine is currently unavailable.
Unlike foot-long hot dogs or a bucket of biscuit gravy, sushi divides tasty culinary concoctions into tidbits so that the palate can better savor the tastetations. With today’s Groupon to Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy, patrons can tickle the taste buds without tasting pterodactyl feathers or licking batteries.
The Omaha World-Herald says Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy is still "one of the city's best" sushi joints, 73% of Urbanspooners like it, and a combined 10 Yelpers and TripAdvisors each give it four to five stars.
- The rice was subtly flavored and perfectly sticky. The salmon was tender without being mushy, the tuna meaty and red. I particularly loved the supple and subtly striped white flesh of the striped bass and the rich flavor of the soft, blushing yellowtail. – Nichole Aksamit, Omaha World-Herald
- This is the best Sushi in Omaha easily, comparable to that in Japan. Anything from the soft-shell crab to the sashimi will blow you away. – Alex, Urbanspoon
- The salmon nigiri is some of the best I've ever had. If you haven't been there you're missing out! – bjg74, TripAdvisor
