The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi, non-alcoholic beverages, and more at Volcano Sushi Bar, located in the Great Neck Village Shopping Center.
Red walls accented with gold and frosted windows that filter gentle sunlight onto Japanese décor form the foundation of Volcano Sushi Bar's modern, cheerful interior. Dive in to the eatery's massive menu to select from more than 30 appetizers and 60 varieties of hand-bundled maki and specialty rolls. Patrons afraid of bite-sized bitables can unsuccessfully wrap their entire mouths around hearty plates of curry udon noodles ($12.95), chicken teriyaki ($12.95), and shrimp tempura ($14.95). Sundry vegetarian and vegan entrees ($8.95–$11.95) aid meat-fearing folk without forcing them to eat marbled steak out of a hypnotist's hands. For dessert, treat your taste buds to a lavish cruise on the banana boat, a fried banana covered with black sesame, whipped cream, syrup, and two flavors of ice cream ($5.95).
Volcano Sushi Bar
It might seem like a contradiction that Volcano Sushi Bar specializes in uncooked fish. But the “volcanic” part of the restaurant’s name comes into play in the restaurant’s spicier signature seafood rolls, such as the Spicy Omy God roll, the Volcano roll, and the Spicy Tuna roll, as well as in the decor, which features warm orange and yellow walls. Beyond the fiery realm, the chefs assemble a wide variety of artful sushi that incorporates yellowtail, eel, and smoked salmon as well as vegetarian options such as the sweet-potato roll. You also can find a multitude of other Japanese staples on the menu, such as yakisoba, crispy-tempura shrimp, and teriyaki salmon.
