Had people discovered sushi sooner, they could have prevented many kitchen fires and Prometheus would not have resorted to thievery. Enjoy flame-free cuisine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sushi at Wild Sushi.
Wild Sushi's lengthy menu cossets patrons and their flavor receptors with authentic Japanese specialties served inside a modern restaurant. Yellow and blue lights swathe the building's textured walls to create a calm and flowing atmosphere, which patrons may enjoy from the comfort of a table or while levitating above a counter seat to observe the mastery of the sushi chefs. Ignite palates with incendiary specialties such as the wasabi-tuna roll ($6) or the spicy-tuna roll, which combines chipped tuna, chili sauce, and scallions with a fusion of red and wasabi sauces ($6). Wild Sushi's signature creations include the sweet soy-glazed Snow Mountain roll ($12), the shrimp-tempura- and fresh-salmon-infused pico-de-gallo roll ($12), and the New Orleans–inspired Cajun roll, which shamelessly lifts its top of avocado and crawfish tails for beads ($12). In addition to comfortably swaddled sushi creations, Wild Sushi unites diners with more than 20 sashimi and nigiri dishes such as unagi ($4+) and red snapper ($4+). Guests can also depart on epicurean adventures with entrees such as the braised Japanese tofu, which is derived from a peculiar fish whose excellent camouflaging abilities make people think it is actually a soybean plant ($8).
An eclectic mix of ingredients, such as chipotle peppers, coconut shrimp, crawfish tail, and crunchy duck, gets stuffed inside the more than 40 signature rolls at Wild Sushi. Chefs swaddle shrimp tempura, cream cheese, and jalapeños inside the Red Rock roll and top the creation with spicy tuna, crabstick, and “exploding” sauces. “This roll was a behemoth, a massive construction standing at least 8 inches tall on the plate,” wrote Teresa Gubbins of DFW.com, who highlighted the roll in a review of the eatery. Towering rolls aren't the only surprises up the chefs’ sleeves. They also hide unexpected sweet touches inside their creations in the form of strawberries and honey walnuts. In addition, chefs stoke fires to heat up a variety of Japanese entrees, such as salmon steaks served with an apple-miso sauce or tilapia sautéed in a spicy coconut-curry sauce.
Guests settle into sleek wooden chairs at tables covered with squares of brown butcher paper to draw caricatures of sushi rolls playing tennis. Large teardrop lanterns fill the simple, modern dining room with light and illuminate a sushi bar backed with a wall of soothing waves.
