Market Basket: A sushi platter from Zama

Gallery: Market Basket: A sushi platter from Zama

Sushi Sunday

Turn your Super Bowl party into the Sushi Bowl with this mega-maki platter created by Rittenhouse Square's Zama specifically for pro football's big weekend. You won't find any of chef Hiroyuki "Zama" Tanaka's more exotic creations (for those, you'll have to eat at the restaurant, open especially for lunch that Sunday). On the take-home platter, your guests will see rather more familiar combo rolls including crunchy tuna, sweet-glazed eel, salmon-avocado, California roll, and shrimp tempura. But the quality and craftsmanship are what one would expect from one of the city's sushi best. And the value - $50 for about 64 pieces - is the equivalent of a Hail Hiroyuki touchdown pass.

Better-for-you chips

Chips are to Super Bowl parties what turkey is to Thanksgiving. But even if you can't eat just one, that doesn't mean you can't mitigate the damage. Beanito's tasty new white-bean-and-sea-salt chips are certified gluten-free, non-GMO, and low-glycemic, and have way more fiber and protein and way less sodium than your typical bag of chips. Plus they taste great.
