The Sushi Equinox

Springtime. Primavera. ばね時間. Printemps. Call it what you want, but it means the renewal of everything. Clean your house, water the flowers, hose down the driveway, get on the Gold Line, and head over to Tenno Sushi and Seafood Grill for some yummy and affordable sushi. Think of it as tasty flowers.

“People have this conception about how Japanese food is a little pricey around here,” owner Peter Kim told us a few months back. “So our price starts really low, and we shrunk our portions to four pieces so people could try out different types of rolls.

“Our local customers are looking for something really cheap and small and fast,” Kim continued. “They have a certain amount of money they want to spend for lunch, so instead of buying a big meal for $10.00 or $15.00, they could come here and try a $3.00 one and a couple of rolls [and] it will still be under $10.00.”

“They all start at around $2.00. Our fried rice, we sell at $5. Chinese food, everything is $5.00. We sell our tacos at $2.00.”

Get out and smell the new flowers, breathe in the spring air, and let the scents guide you to the intersection of Arroyo Parkway and Colorado. You’re on your own from there.
