Wandering Outside the Bubble
It’s always hard to decide where to eat when there are so many restaurant options. Fortunately, Zushi Wok and Grill makes the choice somewhat easier. If you are having trouble deciding between sushi or Chinese food, know that Zushi is proud to offer both.
Zushi Wok and Grill is a little restaurant near the intersection of Belt Line Road and the John W. Carpenter Freeway, around 10 to 15 minutes away from campus (depending on traffic). The restaurant serves many different dishes, including mu shu shrimp, Mongolian chicken, fried rice and various sushi rolls.
It also offers two of my favorite appetizers, crab rangoon and edamame. Desserts include cheesecake, sugar rolls and green-tea ice cream. Red Bull appears on the drink menu — a great option for the sleep-deprived University of Dallas student.
When I went to Zushi this past week with my roommate, I ordered fried rice with chicken and sweet shrimp sushi. Both of the dishes were amazing, and because of the large portions, I was able to reheat the rest for dinner the next night.
Zushi serves great food for an even better price. A dinner for two costs about $19 and includes two egg rolls, two soups, four dumplings (or crab rangoons) and two entrees.
The restaurant’s regular prices range from $8 to $12 for Chinese food or sushi to $11 to $14 for chef specialties. However, if you’re free from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can purchase a lunch special that includes California rolls, miso soup and four pieces of Sushi.
Although you must spend a minimum of $12 in order to be eligible, Zushi also delivers. If you live on campus, there’s a $2 delivery fee, but if you live within 3 miles of the restaurant, delivery is free.
This doesn’t mean that Zushi is not a great place to visit for a meal. The restaurant is quaint and quiet, and the staff is quite friendly. It’s a small restaurant, which means it’s perfect for a date or a dinner out with your friends.
Next time you can’t decide whether you want Chinese or sushi, remember that there’s a restaurant nearby that offers the best of both worlds.
Zushi is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. For more information, feel free to visit zushiwokandgrill.com or call (972)-929-8899.
