Attention sushi lovers!  Oz is back from his month-long visit to the U.S. His recent qualification as Ozumahou (Japanese for sushi master) was celebrated with the presentation of a beautiful hand-carved hardwood cutting board, with his name and the words “sushi master” in bold relief.

Oz performs his culinary magic at the Sunset Grill Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5-9 p.m. If you’re not sure whether you’d like sushi, Oz will explain all about its preparation and nutritional excellence, and offer samples of various types for you to try.

Many people believe that sushi is all about eating raw fish, but there are many forms of sushi that involve no raw ingredients at all. Sushi includes tempura style cooking and may be prepared completely vegetarian. If you’ve been a bit reluctant to try sushi, let Oz introduce you to a delicious dining experience.

The farmer’s market (feria) at cinco esquinas (five corners) every second and third Sunday of the month is really becoming popular. It now offers covered vendor spaces, a covered area with tables to sit and enjoy snacks or just meet friends buying their organic vegetables, homemade cheeses, baked goods or garage sale items.

There is plenty of parking and a restroom facility with running water. The feria opens at 10 a.m. and continues to 2 p.m. Come early for the best selection of goodies.
