If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature's logic with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi and Japanese fare at Umi Sushi.
Umi Sushi crafts a menu of artistic plates sown with fresh mouthfuls of sushi and other Japanese specialties for lunch and dinner diners. Appetite archaeologists unearth flavors sifting through spoonfuls of miso soup ($1.95 a cup) before clearing out edamame sarcophagi ($2.75). Made-to-order hand and cut rolls occupy the mitts of clumsy chopstick wielders with fresh wraps such as the scallop-and-cucumber-filled Rock & Roll ($7.50) or the benz hand roll, featuring tempura shrimp, crab, cream cheese, asparagus, cucumber, and avocado with soy paper ($7.95). A variety of specialty rolls feed fish lovers, such as the 009 Roll ($12.50), which seduces taste buds with shrimp, crab, asparagus, cucumber, avocado, and tamago, before breaking their taste bud hearts to serve Queen and country.
- Umi is close by, which always makes for connivence [sic], but we like to continue to go because it's good! – Robb B., Yelp, 3/11/09
- The sushi here is also fresh and has great flavor. There's a great variety of special rolls too you can enjoy. Everyone is so friendly here and they provide excellent service – Paul n Eunie C., Yelp, 4/9/10
From a menu composed largely of specialty maki, the chefs of Umi Sushi craft more than 40 types of rolls that serve as tasty pairings to hot entrees and more than a dozen colorful appetizers. Diners can kick off meals with plates of crisp agedashi tofu and ponzu sauce, moving on to special rolls lined with barbecue short ribs or spicy crab and tuna. Meals can be complemented with sips of hot sake from the bar or cold, imported beer.
