Recently Central Pa Sushi held a dinner party at Zen Japanese in Mechanicsburg and what a great decision that was. I must say that I think that this place has become my new favorite for sushi in the area. The rolls were amazing, took a bit of time to get out due to 25+ hungry sushi members but were well worth the wait. The wait staff was friendly and when I asked the best rolls on the menu the boss’s daughter gave me great descriptions and what she recommended was delicious.
I loved breadcrumbs on the rolls over having batter tempura served at other places, seaweed salad roll was super tasty, dragon roll wasn’t much for presentation but best eel I ever tried and portions where just right. Overlooked at first, Zen is tucked in a shopping center off Simpson Ferry Road is a great find for any sushi lover.

A very large group of Central Pa Sushi went for sushi and hibachi last sunday. I could probably be so bold to speak in saying that sushi wise they really kicked it up a notch, serving some rolls in martini glasses and adding over 15 new chef rolls to the menu. The sweetheart roll was to die for (spicy tuna topped with tuna shaped like hearts) and the three different kinds of dragon rolls (we tried the black one and the mango one, both nice). Some of the nicest sushi I have had in this area.
Hibachi was just a hit and miss for me. Made fresh veggies although not as seasoned as I like but we enjoyed the show, you must want a lot of interaction because they will toss food at you the whole night, not to mention squirt sake in your mouth til you are drunk (might not always happen but last week the chef was mad, in a good way).
Service was super friendly, with a party of 25 we had atleast 4 servers asking us if we needed anything at all times. Was a really good night, great sushi and for a great price.

Fuji Do wins again, Central Pa Sushi Group held it’s Halloween bash this Tuesday at this little Paxton Street favorite and once again showed how amazing it is. For the price nothing really comes close to the quantity and quality of the fish served at Fuji Do. One of the longest running sushi bars (now that there are dozens of them in the Harrisburg Area) and they have never short changed us. We took some snaps of the portions, Fuji do is one place that you will never walk away hungry. Enjoy.
