Diced tempura shrimp, masago – a type of fish roe – and avocado wrapped in sticky rice and drizzled with a special sauce, Tsunami’s Crunchy roll ($7) is one of the restaurant’s most popular items. The Crunchy roll is part of a larger EatLafayette special, where diners can order Miso soup, a house salad, one sushi roll (less than $9) and a choice of Chicken Teriyaki or Tonkatsu entrée for $20. During the campaign, Tusnami will feature 17 of its famous rolls, including the Alaskan roll ($8), Philadelphia roll ($6) and John Breaux roll ($8) –a sautéed crawfish and avocado roll served with a spicy sauce.
Tsunami opened its doors in January 2000, offering many adventurous eaters of Lafayette their first taste of sushi. Today, Tsunami is known for its premier Asian cuisine and upscale atmosphere and located on 412 Jefferson Street. It is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The campaign runs June 18 to Aug. 15.
