The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavour. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $23, you get a set-menu sushi dinner for two at Taki Japanese Restaurant on Victoria Avenue (a $49 value). Taki Japanese Restaurant offers traditional Japanese cuisine in a sleek, modern atmosphere. With today's deal, duos of diners can pack away piles of tangy teriyaki and crisp, lightly battered shrimp and vegetable tempura while guzzling gallons of green tea and savoury seaweed-stocked miso soup. The meal also includes succulent salads, six dainty rice-wrapped rounds of sushi, and a fresh-baked pastry or goblet of ice cream for dessert. The sleek dark wood and muted lighting of Taki Sushi's modern interior, whose main dining room can seat a hundred, is the perfect setting for a dinner date or sophisticated samurai food fight.
Taki Japanese Restaurant
The chefs at Taki Japanese Restaurant roll more than 30 varieties of sushi and sashimi with eclectic and traditional ingredients ranging from sweet egg and salmon roe to sea urchin and yellowtail. Not satisfied with forcing their ingredients to do the heavy lifting, they also focus on aesthetics, arranging rolls in colorful tableaus on long porcelain plates or in mock naval battles on sushi boats. At lunch and dinner, they also fill the restaurant with aromas of Japanese cooking. As faces glow with light from sleek wall sconces amidst a warm yellow color scheme, tables fill with ginger pork, and wa-fu oroshi-style steak, and adventurous fusion dishes such as Japanese-style carpaccio.
