Like hunting topiary animals instead of mammals, eating fish can serve as a gradual transition from carnivore to vegetarian. Begin potential dietary evolutions with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and Japanese fare at Sushi Unlimited. This Groupon is valid at the Davis, Roseville, and Folsom locations.
Sushi Unlimited relies on its expert chefs and dedicated staff to transform recently swimming fish into protein-packed delicacies, with a wide-ranging menu that appeals to taste buds of all stripes. Hearty entrees such as the tender chicken teriyaki ($14.95) are served with soup or salad, and the nigiri combo ($15.95 for lunch; $19.50 for dinner) leaves the sushi choice up to the chef so diners don’t accidentally select fish sticks or sushi-shaped candy. Gourmet rolls include the avocado and unagi-laced J. Lo ($11.95) and the Raiders roll ($13.95), which, like the NFL team’s protective gear, wraps deep-fried shrimp and spicy tuna in a layer of seaweed and rice. A selection of on-tap beers ($3.50) and sake ($4.50+) keep mouth mechanisms properly lubricated.
The chefs at Sushi Unlimited combine their eye for artistry with fresh ingredients to create sushi rolls and hearty entrees. Their signature rolls pay homage to elements of nature as well as local sports teams. For instance, chefs pack the Raiders roll with deep-fried shrimp and spicy tuna before hacking it into pieces with a cutlass and serving it on a wooden plank. As for traditional cooked dishes, the culinary team charbroils fresh salmon steaks for teriyaki plates and deep-fries tempura-style shrimp and vegetables.
At the Davis location, a red accent wall behind the bar vivifies the selection of Japanese sake and beer. The Folsom restaurant boasts a marble-topped sushi bar and wooden columns painted in a whimsical purple. Dotted with flat-screen televisions, the Roseville location has a casual vibe.
