For anybody who plans to be in or about Las Vegas in the near future, I have finally found a reasonably priced sushi restaurant that I like in this city. (There used to be one down on Sahara, but it's long gone.)

Anyway, this place is Zen Sushi. It rplaced the old, not so good sushi place at Lake Mead and Tenaya, and I've gotten their takeout a couple of times, but this time I had the opportunity to go in for the $20.00 all-you-can-eat sushifest.


Some twenty pieces of nigiri, a black widow roll, and two quail eggs later, the chef sorrowfully agreed with me that I couldn't possibly eat another bite. He was bored, I think: I was the only customer at the bar, and we were watching CNN together while he fed me. And he took very goodcare of me.

I threw myself at his mercy, which is what I normally do in sushi bars. And wow. Was richly rewarded with--among other things--some lovely toro, firm and sweet, a cajun seared albacore with garlic chili sauce, and the most beautiful sweet, crispy, beautiful unagi I have ever eaten in my life.

Highly recommended as moderate-priced sushi joints go. Though the sushi place near retrobabble's apartment complex (the one of the startlingly realistic, foot-long caterpillar rolls) and the one that sandwichboy and leahbobet and I went to in January are still the all-time winners.
