Love sushi, but hate paying $12-$18 per roll? It’s your lucky day! Here are 4 local places serving up delicious sushi for a great deal!
Located in the Southend area in Atherton Mill, O-Ku offers 1/2 price specialty rolls every Monday and Wednesday night from 5pm-7pm. You read that correctly, 1/2 price! That means, you can order a salmon and lemon roll, with a rainbow roll for the price of 1! Crazy right?! So grab your boo or your group of besties and go get your sushi on! While you’re there, be sure to grab one of their amazing cocktails. My personal favorite is the Hot and Spicy, but if we’re being honest, I’ve never met a cocktail I didn’t like.
