Owner
Shawn Zhang came to Oklahoma from the northwest part of China, but he
specializes in irresistible Japanese sushi. Some of his best-sellers are
the aptly named “Spicy Cowboy” and another called “Lifesaver,” which is
tuna and salmon with lemon, cucumber and avocado. Sweeten the
celebration with its scrumptious deep-fried bananas or New York-style
cheesecake.
