Sushi Zen celebrates 10th year anniversary

Sushi Zen recently celebrated their tenth year in business by hosting a huge party at their Mill Creek restaurant.

Sushi Zen recently celebrated their tenth year in business by hosting a huge party at their Mill Creek restaurant. During the party they were able to raise over $1,100 for the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Relief Fund with a raffle and a cash bar.

Kimiko and Daniel took over Sushi Zen back in 2003. They have worked hard to give the restaurant a cozy neighborhood vibe and became one of CitySearch’s top 10 best sushi restaurants their first year.

Sushi Zen’s most recent award was becoming one of Evening Magazines top 10 best sushi in Seattle in 2013.

One of the highlights of Sushi Zen’s 10th year anniversary party was the Kagami-biraki. According to Daniel, “Kagami-biraki is a ceremony performed at celebratory events in which the lid of the sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone present. Kagami refers to the lid of the sake barrel and biraki means ‘to open’ so kagami-biraki literally means ‘opening the lid.’ Because of the lid's round shape, the kagami is a symbol of harmony. The kagami-biraki, therefore, represents an opening to harmony and good fortune.”
