Jidai Sushi Dinner Deal

We’ve been fans of Jidai Kaiten Sushi since they opened. In kaiten sushi (回転寿司) you sit around the outside of a geometric shape and a conveyor belt brings various plates around in front of you. The sushi chefs are inside the shape – a triangle here. The color of the plate indicates the price.

Jidai is in the Shops at Boca Grove, on the west side of Powerline between Glades and Palmetto.

Jidai normally prices plates from $2 to $5, though there are other items on a menu you can order that are not on the conveyor belt. For their new dinner deal (see image above), the $2 and $3 plates have their normal price, and the $4 and $5 plates are reduced to $3 during a “happy hour” window from 5 – 7 pm.

We stopped by today for the Jidai lunch deal we wrote about previously – all the plates are $2. They are extending that deal until further notice.
We’re not just saying we’re fans. We’ve been there three times this month for the lunch deal. And it appears that the deal offer is working. They had a good lunch crowd today.
We enjoyed our meal today, as usual, and will be back for more.

Disclosure: Our first few articles about Jidai were written without any business relationship. After we wrote the lunch deal article we did an ad campaign for the article. The restaurant paid for the ads and paid us a small fee for managing them. We generally pay full price for our meals there but they have sometimes given us a small discount or a free item. The monetary value of what we have received is trivial and we really do love the place. We have talked about doing another ad campaign but this article was written with no compensation.

Euro Fusion at Wharfside Village

Update: Euro Fusion has closed and there is now a Greek restaurant in its place, Rafina.
Euro Fusion is a fairly new restaurant in the plaza better known for the Carrabba’s. it’s on 18th at Powerline in South Central Boca.
We sat outside on the deck, with a beautiful lake view (Carrabba’s deck has the same).

It’s an interesting menu. They seem very serious about being Kosher. I saw no red meat or chicken, probably because they serve milk. They even have kosher shrimp.
The large menu includes breakfast, lunch, dinner (with kids menu), sushi and dessert.
I started with seared yellowtail, a sashimi-like dish but slightly cooked, and with jalapeño slices. The presentation was attractive and the jalapeño provided a nice burn.

Next we had a Mediterranean appetizer, with hummus, baba ghanouj, and two other items. All excellent, and I usually don’t like baba ghanouj.

We also had their “European” salad, with candied walnuts, avocado and orange slices. Three of us shared two of these and all were impressed with the dressing which was delicious but not overpowering.

All in all a very nice meal. We will be back.
