Healthy lunch options can be few and far between in North Austin, especially if you’re adhering to phase 1 of the Atkin’s diet. (It’s working great!

I’m a huge fan of GrouponNow and LivingSocial, and since there’s a “$5 for $10” and “$4 for $8” deal for Piranha going on, I had to go. For a downtown spot during lunch hour it was pretty empty.
The bento box specials are the best way to go. You get miso soup and a ton of food for just $12.95 (or should I say $2.95 since I used the Groupon?).
I chose the “Sushi Bento,” but wish I’d went with the “Sashimi Bento” instead. The booze was not cheap, and I don’t recommend drinking here unless it’s during happy hour which generally lasts from 4-7.
The quality is high in comparison to most other downtown sushi joints,
and the bento boxes are enormous.
Piranha offers a very decent lunch deal, but $7 hot sake is a bit much.
Wait until happy hour when it drops to $2.50.
