Sushi bars combine delicious food and visual entertainment without ever blurring the line between the two, unlike most dinner-theater productions of Titus Andronicus. Get dinner and a sushi show with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese and Thai cuisine at Wasabi.
Wasabi’s menu is a massive meld of traditional Japanese sensations and tasty Thai creations. Tako-su (steamed octopus, $5.95) and yaki ebi (shrimp teriyaki skewers, $4.50) bait anxious appetites before reeling them in for a main course of tuna, salmon, and shrimp nigiri (two pieces, $3.75–$3.95). Try one of Wasabi’s chef-special rolls, such as the Midnight Fantasy, with shrimp, crab, tuna, yellowtail, seaweed salad, and fish egg ($12.95), or fall back on old favorites, such as the california ($4.20) or rainbow ($7.95) rolls. Palates will experience a flavor explosion when the Dynamite roll's deep-fried salmon, crab, and asparagus ($6.20) come into contact with saliva. Like pressing your tongue against a stack of Marshall amps, biting into the Rock 'n' Roll ($5.50) delivers a mouthwatering wallop of shrimp tempura, cucumber, cream cheese, and crab. Pad thai (tofu or chicken, $7.65; beef or shrimp, $7.95) and an entree of kaeng phet curry ($7.95–$15) add spicy twangs to the eating experience, and pineapple fried rice ($7.65–$9.95) and sweet-and-sour chicken or shrimp ($7.65–$11) satisfy mellower Thai cravings.
Wasabi Sushi and Thai
Chefs, or artists? At Wasabi Sushi and Thai, it's a little bit of both. The skilled sushi and hibachi chefs create specialty rolls that double as works of art. If the dozens of specialty sushi roll possibilities isn't enough, the chefs also entertain and cook hibachi-style dinners, table-side. There are plenty of tasty options for diners who aren't seafood or edible art fans, including fried rice, curry, and noodle dishes.
