Today’s Groupon gets you $40 worth of Asian fusion recipes and sushi at Tengu for $20. Taking its moniker from the Japanese God of Mischief, Tengu, located off Wilshire and the 405, offers delightfully well-behaved food and ambience that will destroy your appetite with a baseball bat made out of rice and seaweed.

Tengu delivers menu sophistication that shuns the banal. Peruse succulent bites, from the hot sashimi picante (trio of tuna, yellowtail, and salmon kicked up with jalapeno and ginger-garlic ponzu, $19.50) to the rock shrimp tempura (lightly breaded and joined by a spicy aioli sauce, $14). Travel by land with the seared togarashi beef (with micro arugula and white-truffle oil, $16) or by sea with the crispy calamari (topped off with crispy zucchini and habanero-lime yogurt, $11).

The comprehensive sushi menu has flavors for all palates. Eyes and hearts open to the zen crunch (spicy albacore, sesame, and ginger sauce, $10) and the red dragon (crab, spicy tuna, and green bean tempura, $18). The flavor-adventurous can find edible works of art to deliver to the stomach-gallery in the body-museum on Digestion Street.

Tengu's provocative interior design provides a chic, zen atmosphere backed by DJ-powered music. The half sushi bar, half nightclub will batter your human senses until they cry like human toddler senses.

America’s Favorite Troublemakers

In Japanese mythology, tengu are mischievous troublemakers. Here’s what you didn’t know about some of American history’s most famous troublemakers:

  • Ben Franklin: This roustabout loved to rile the feathers of polite society and once trained a monkey to play chess for the purpose of later eating a very smart monkey.
  • Chief Justice John Marshall: His majority opinion in landmark case Marbury v. Madison established the concept of judicial review. What a prankster!
  • President Eisenhower: This “Prankster-in-Chief” admitted on his deathbed that his decades-long marriage to wife Mamie was part of an elaborate practical joke that ended in love.
