Most restaurants hide their chefs in the back of the house, where, like secret gardens, they are unable to display the artistry of their radish flowers, onion volcanoes, and knife juggling. Watch these secret creations blossom with today's Groupon to Susumu Japanese Steakhouse in Roseville. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a hibachi dinner for four (up to a $70 total value). Each of the four diners may choose one of the following:
- The chicken-and-shrimp combo entree (a $16.95 value each)
- The beef-and-shrimp combo entree (a $17.50 value each)
- For $15, you get $30 worth of anything on the menu. Entrees range from $12.95 to $19.50; shochu drinks start at $4.50.
Drawing from more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, Iron Chef Susumu oversees hibachi grills, at which skillful chefs safely play with knives and spin an entertaining dinner show in front of hungry eyes. The combo entrees each intermix 5 ounces of chicken or beef with mushrooms and four pieces of shrimp for a meal more multipronged than a fork stuck through a bike wheel, forming a fitting end to the chef’s pre-dinner entertainment.
Those who opt to choose their own meal can avail themselves of a sushi bar, bento meals, or nigiri as well as hibachi-style meats. All of Susumu’s mixed drinks are made with shochu, a Japanese distillate containing 24% alcohol by volume. Birthdays at Susumu are celebrated with free ice cream and the Japanese happy song sung over the beat of a taiko drum and harmonizing antique jazz flutes.
Susumu Japanese Steakhouse
The brainchild of an iron chef with more than 30 years of restaurant experience, Susumu Japanese Steakhouse dazzles diners with hibachi-style fare prepared tableside with fresh ingredients and show-stopping cooking methods. Nighttime noshers take a front-row seat to the spectacle of Susumu’s trained chefs twirling knives, flipping eggs, and constructing active onion volcanoes on the sizzling grill. Lemon chicken, teriyaki beef, hibachi prawn, and veggie specialties sputter and pop tableside like Thomas Edison’s short-lived invention, the electrified tablecloth, setting the stage for inventive desserts, such as tempura ice cream or banana spring rolls. The sushi bar’s chilled appetizers and rolled samplers provide a delicious alternative to grilled entrees, and a yakiniku menu features Japanese barbeque.
