This past Friday was the grand opening event for Zensen Sushi Express. Becoming the newest addition to sushi restaurants on Durant Ave., one of Berkeley's go-to food spots, Zensen reeled in enough customers to have customers line out of the door to get in. My friends and I had to wait over 45 minutes just to get seated because the place was so popular! It could have been the novelty of the revolving conveyor belt that wove around the entire restaurant that served sushi right to your table, or the fact that all sushi plates were $1.00; but it could have also been Zensen's unique use of American cheese slices on their sushi.
My second day of work was a blast. Can you guess why? Well, obviously from the title, you can deduce that yes-- there was a party. More specifically, it was our launch party to celebrate the release of the new Beer and Cheese: Perfect Pairings Guide for Kindle and iTunes. I've never participated in anything resembling a cheese tasting before-- unless you count those coveted sampling tables at the super market-- and was so excited to arrive at the office and find it filled with boxes of large cheeses and a myriad of beers!
