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.

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.

Wednesday at Okini was the second gathering of the Central PA Sushi lovers group (the first since the name change) and was every bit as good as the March meeting – or so I’m told, since I couldn’t make that nervous blind date on account of me being on the other side of the Atlantic. 

The great thing about Sushi is that it’s so condusive to good conversation. The neat parcels of fresh fish and rice won’t get cold, you can eat it without dribbling spaghetti sauce all down your chin (a speciality of mine, I must admit) and it’s usually presented in such a way as to be a conversation starter in and of itself.

Not that many people on Wednesday had to fall back on the plates before them in order to liven up the evening, for as post-it notes fluttered onto foreheads at the other end of the table, amongst a bluster of hearty wine-fueled laughter, at the “square end” we had a good ol’ chinwag about, among other things, Sushi in London, life in Tokyo and soccer in South America – coversations, I’m sad to say,  I won’t be able to pick up again until June. For everyone else the next get-together will come a touch sooner.

For me, aside from eating great food, it was wonderful to meet new faces and I look forward doing both again in a few weeks.
