Japanese cuisine is among the tastier items to traverse the Pacific Ocean, second only to deep-fried surfboards. Treat tongues to a sea of flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks at Tokyo Fro's Rockin' Sushi.
Tokyo Fro's harvests an ocean of mirthful meals, including a collection of newly conceived dishes, paired with a full schedule of live music, trivia, and karaoke. Fresh fish is flown to the restaurant six days a week, both by plane and on the backs of epicurean Mothras, to be assembled into raw delicacies behind the spacious eatery’s sprawling sushi bar. Dive into flavorful cooked starters such as calamari togarashi, in which panko-crusted squid rings are dusted with spicy togarashi peppers as a wasabi-lime cocktail sauce looks on approvingly ($10). Tokyo Fro’s skilled chefs apply oven flames and heat vision to a bevy of other cooked items, such as teriyaki salmon ($14) and the battered, panko-breaded pork tonkatsu ($14), both bathed in succulent homemade sauces. Dip crispy tempura artichoke hearts in garlic miso butter as a symbol of love gone bad ($9), or cozy up beneath a scrumptious blanket of barbecue albacore, which tops sweet onions with the titular tuna ($12). Every entree travels to plates accompanied by a protective posse of vegetables, rice, and salad.
