Tonight we met up with my mother in law for my husband’s birthday dinner at Kenzo Sushi Bistro. I haven’t been here since they opened a long time ago so I don’t have anything to really compare to last time. I really liked that you could enjoy the happy hour prices in the main dining room without having to sit at the bar. We ordered a variety of things off the happy hour menu and really enjoyed ourselves. The food doesn’t take too long to come out and everyone was really nice.
We started with the Crab Puff $3 (Crispy wonton puff filled with crabmeat and cream cheese). I really liked the lightness of the puff and that it was not dripping in grease. The dipping sauce is excellent there’s a subtle sweetness with the spiciness.
Gyoza $4 (Pan Fried Pork Dumplings) These where a good value for the cost.
Spicy Tuna Roll $4 (left) Spicy tuna and cucumber and Spicy Salmon Roll (right) Spicy salmon and cucumber. These rolls where ok, a little less filling then I thought they would have. I expecting maybe an additional 2 pieces instead of just 4.
Cougar Roll $7 (IN: Spicy tuna and cucumber TOP: peppercorn tuna, avocado, spicy ponzu, and spicy sesame oil).
Rock & Roll $5 (shrimp tempura, masago, and cucumber with spicy mayo and teriyaki sauce)
Spider Roll $6 (Softshell crab tempura, masago, and cucumber with spicy mayo and teriyaki sauce). I felt like it could have had a little more filling, but it was a good flavor with the teriyaki sauce.
Westside Roll $6 (IN: snow crab, avocado, and cucumber TOP: shrimp tempura, spicy mayo, and teriyaki sauce). This was one of my favorite rolls.
Shaggy Dog Roll $6 (IN: shrimp tempura and avocado TOP: shredded crabsticks, spicy mayo, and sweet teriyaki sauce). I loved this roll and would order it again.
I really enjoyed our experience with the restaurant their food is really well priced and they where even kind enough to bring my hubby a really rich brownie with ice cream for his birthday. We will go back another time to try other dishes they offer.
