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.

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.

Hi everyone! My name’s Dre. I haven’t been to any of the meet-ups yet (as I work evenings) but I wanted to tell you guys about how HOT sushi is in York! Seriously, I go to Masa, over in West York (1720 Loucks Rd, York) about 2x a month. They have excellent service and a great reputation as one of the best places for sushi in Central P.A, so hopefully we can organize a meet-up over there sometime soon. There’s another sushi place opening up off Route 30, also in York, called “Fujihana,” and I’ll let you guys know when they’re open for business. My friend Erica and I have checked out the sushi place inside the Farmer’s Market of York (of course I can’t remember the name of it now) and it seems like they have some exotic choices (mango sushi!). Also, I heard a rumor that the sushi place next to the Queensgate Cinema (Mitsuru?) is closing, awwww…. That’s all for now, but I’ll be at some of the next meet-ups: Crab Fest on the 23rd, and Sapporo East and Fuji Do, and I’m looking forward to meeting some of you wild and crazy sushi people!

Tonight Central Pa Sushi Meetup and I (the organizer) went to the Olive and Jasmine Asian Bistro in Lancaster. Having visited a majority of the Japanese restaurants in the area, I would have to say that Olive and Jasmine is one of (if not) the best restaurant of its kind in Central Pa. When it comes to atmosphere this place really surpasses the competition. The one thing this area lacks is the dining experience, most of the sushi places are either cafe or diner style establishments. Olive and Jasmine has nice decor throughout and a lovely private dining room for larger parties. The Dynamite Green Lips (spicy mussels appetizer) was simply delicious, best dragon roll I ever tasted and when it comes to other sushi on the menu I highly recommend this place in Lancaster to anyone that likes fresh assortment sushi platters because they offer so many varieties of them. The menu is quite extensive serving sushi, Thai, hibachi and Malaysian.

For a party of 18 they did very well service wise. We will definitely be back.
