$25 for $50 Worth of Sushi at Kyu Sushi

Here’s a great deal for the sushi aficionado (and price conscious shopper) via Groupon: for a limited time you can get $25 off your meal at Kyu Sushi if you spend $50 or more. Chicago Tiger Sushi has never been to Kyu, so we can’t recommend (or not recommend) them as a restaurant, but 50% off is hard to pass up. We may be heading down there soon!

Note: after purchase, the coupon is good until 08/25/2010.  Visit Groupon for more details.

Extended Shelf Life for Sushi

With ‘fast food’ sushi being increasingly sold in grocery and convenience stores, naturally stores would want sushi to have a good shelf life in order to minimize discarding unsold sushi that is past it’s expiration date. Hefestus Ltd. developed a way to extend the shelf life of fresh sushi with custom-made top-sealing packaging machines. Read more about it in this Food Magazine article.

Duane Reade, for Chicagoans unfamiliar with the name, is a New York chain drug store, much like Walgreens or CVS in Chicago. Although here, Duane Reade announces that they have “accepted an offer to become part of Walgreens.” In any case, Chicago Tiger Sushi reported that 7-Eleven stores have carried sushi and now Duane Reade joined the trend. An article from the Village Voice is titled: “Duane Reade’s Sushi: We Tried it so You Don’t Have to,” which gives an indication as to the quality of their product. The author recommends sticking with Pringles and beer instead.

Chicago Tiger Sushi recently came across the 5-in-1 Sushi Maker Sushi Master Plus (and no, not in a 3AM infomercial shown after South Park reruns) and wanted to share the product with it’s readers. This device assists in easy sushi preparation at home, including making heart-shaped sushi – just in time for Valentine’s Day. It can be directly bought from the CyberBrands website.

To warn deaf people of fire, scientists in Japan developed a smoke detector that puffs a wasabi scent instead of sounding an alarm.

So, if the smell of fire won’t wake your senses, the wasabi scent is said to wake you in two and a half minutes.

This is an instructional video of sorts about the Japanese tradition of eating sushi.
