Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and sashimi at Wonderful Sushi in Hillcrest.
Experienced in the art of knife wielding and stoking appetites, Wonderful Sushi’s chefs handcraft a menu of maki and nigiri with fresh fish and attention to detail. In the customer-favorite white-tuna roll, chefs tuck spicy tuna, crab, and avocado into a blanket of seared tuna before reading it a bedtime story ($14). Large combos of sashimi ($23 for 12 pieces) sing with the flavor of salmon and the sultry voice of yellowtail tuna as selections of scallop nigiri ($3 for two pieces) or octopus nigiri ($3.50 for two pieces) listen attentively. From seats at the sushi bar, diners can cheer on the chefs with foam fingers while washing down bites with wine, Japanese beer, or sake, or hit the outdoor patio to bask in a cool breeze.
