For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine at Takosushi
Takosushi’s primarily Asian menu of sushi and sashimi cozies up to the cross-cultural flavors of the southwest for eclectic gustatory adventure. A starter of tempura asparagus spears slathered in teriyaki and Takosushi sauce slices through hunger pangs, and a goat-cheese quesadilla ($10.95) envelops meaty portabella between crisp tortillas. Dive mouth first into a plethora of makimono rolls, including the teriyaki-glazed shrimp, crab, and avocado of a Crazy roll ($11.95 for 6–8 pieces) and the Unforgettable roll’s apple-mayo sauce nestled alongside shrimp tempura, tuna tartare, and cream cheese ($11.95) for a taste more surprising than learning that, in the future, people get fired by fax. Other stomach silencers include the Firecracker shrimp or tilapia ($13.95), which fries the eponymous seafood in tempura batter before drizzling it with a sweet-chili-and-teriyaki sauce. Patrons consult their astrological charts to decide between soft or crispy corn shells or flour tortillas when it comes to heaping green-chili beef brisket or lime pork into tacos ($14.95).
