Stressed fish seeking relaxation often go for swims in swimming holes filled with soy sauce and ask for massages from incisors. Aid in maritime relaxation with today’s Groupon: for $20, you’ll get $40 worth of sushi, sake, hibachi, and more at Taiko Japanese Restaurant.
Amid Taiko Japanese Restaurant’s elegantly understated, white-walled dining room, families watch masterful chefs cook on hibachi grills and servers pour out sips of sake and deliver sushi and other Japanese cuisine to tables. Wade into the menu and spear gyoza ($4.95) or age tofu ($4.50) before netting bigger prey, such as fried, raw, cooked, or naruto sushi rolls. Tuna, salmon, striped bass, fluke, avocado, and tobiko roll together in the rainbow naruto roll ($11.95), and shrimp, lettuce, cucumber, and mayo wrap themselves in sticky rice and become a boston roll ($4.50). Traditional Japanese dishes—such as chicken teriyaki ($11.95)—line up alongside more modern tastes—such as hibachi filet mignon ($22.95)—amid the restaurant’s selection of noncoastal entrees.
