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.

So over 40 members from Central Pa Sushi invaded Tokyo Diner tonight for hibachi and of course loads of lovely sushi. The meetup has been going strong since this past March and new members seem to join us every day. Hibachi tables are a great way to mingle because you can just get up during the meal and walk around. I would say this meetup was about half new member and half returnees. Over all it was a splendid evening.

Tonight the Central Pa Sushi group went to Wasabi on Willow Street to try out the sushi. I’ll start by saying the rolls are perfect presented, neatly rolled and delicious.  Not to mentionthe prices are great, the sushi combos were well under 18 dollars and no one walked away hungry.  Wasabi is a Japanese restaurant with nice interior design, very comfortable and pleasant place to eat. There are a number of regular tables, as well as a few tatami tables (low table where you take your shoes off and sit) and a sushi bar. The staff also gets an A+ in my book, they were very welcoming and friendly, adding to the already positive environment. I think we all agree that we will be back again.

We went to Fujihana tonight off of rt. 30 in York, Pa. The look of this place on the inside is amazing. You walk in the front lobby to see a huge dining room, one for hibachi and one for sushi separating the place is a large water wall with their logo and some interesting light fixtures. They greeted us with smiles and off the bat I can say this is one of the nicest looking Japaneses restaurants in the area. We ordered about 7 items off the sushi menu, the place had about six other sushi dinner parties on a Wednesday evening. 15 or so minutes waiting for our order they offered us miso for our wait, then salad, our drinks countless times and apologizing for the wait.

Half our order came out and we enjoyed huge hand rolls, the tuna was very fresh and the spicy salmon was almost too big to eat. Two hand rolls (a salad and miso) down and I was plenty full. Our other rolls were so-so. The Christmas roll was made with minced fish topped with salmon, a bit loose but still an enjoyable roll. The crazy roll was peppered tuna and avocado topped with fish… the pepper was different but really came together.  All and all I rate the sushi average but the service was amazing , just sooo friendly.

Their menu is full of dishes, from sushi, hibachi, udon, yaki and soup bowls. Sooo many lunch specials as well that I will have to come back and try soon.. Will keep you posted.
