Usually cheap sushi is found in strip malls but this week you can take advantage of some real quality sushi on the cheap at the Sushi Roku 10 year anniversary in Pasadena. I know my hometown of Pasadena is a little of a trek for most of you, but just remember that if you head there for dinner you can have dessert at 21 Choices (by far my favorite ice cream/yogurt spot since elementary school).
All week (started on Sunday 8/22 and goes til Friday 8/28), in celebration of their 10 years in Old Town, the Sushi Roku in Miller Alley is offering 40% off ALL food, ALL day. Let me do some calculations on some of my favorite dishes for you just so you can see how great of a deal this is….
-Baked cod with miso: usually $15.50 x 40% off = $9.30
-Spicy tuna on crispy rice (at SR – one of the best tuna on crispy rice that I’ve ever had): usually $11 x 40% off = $6.60…I mean, really)
-Baked crab roll: usually $7 x 40% off = $4.20 (!!!)
Most sushi and sashimi will end up being around $3-5 and most rolls will be $4-$6. Seriously, this is a great deal. If you haven’t eaten at SR before (who are you?), the sushi is amazingly good (think Katsuya but without the obnoxious Hollywood scene).
The deal is only on the food so if you are in the mood to get boozy I believe you can stop by during their “Red Sun” HH from 5-7pm to grab a discounted drink in the bar area before dinner. (I say ‘I believe’ because I called to make sure the HH was still on during anniversary special and they said they didn’t have HH on Monday but would be back on Tues from 5-7?…Not sure).
