...but what I really didn't like was the flavor of seaweed that is often a main ingredient in Sushi. Sushi Zen features rice paper rather than seaweed on several of their Sushi entrees and what a difference that rice paper makes as opposed to seaweed! Started out the dinner with a nice and salty Miso Soup, then maybe the best Cucumber Salad I've ever had. It was tangy and spicy and the lettuce and cucumbers were fresh and crisp. For an appetizer we had the Shrimp Tempura and the portion is generous enough for 2-4 people. Nice sized shrimp with light crispy batter and plenty of tempura vegetables too! For the entree I chose the "Bunny Roll" which was filled with shrimp, avocado and cream cheese in rice paper and a lovely spicy sauce on top. It was to die for! Our service was excellent. The food arrived in a timely manner and our server made sure to keep our water/iced tea glasses filled. Left our server a 33% tip because quality is appreciated.

We go here as often as we can for their awesome lunch deal where you get not one, not two, but three items for $10! I often have the seaweed salad, mini bunny roll, and another roll. Their shrimp tempura with veggies is excellent as well. (Actually, everything we've had here has been good.) Service is always friendly and wonderful as well. We live in El Paso and this is one of our favorite restaurants here.
