Zenna: Cheap Sushi Makes Us Happy, but Tapas Prices Don't

It might be better known for its late-night Asian eats, but this week we are checking out the happy hour menu at downtown's Zenna. 

When:  3 p.m-7 p.m. daily
The Scene: Zenna mixes techno with your sushi. The crowd dresses in khakis, skirts, pumps and other things you might expect to see of downtown workers during a happy hour. 
The Deal: $1 sushi, $2-3.50 rolls and discounted hot tapas such as ribs, dumplings, wings and satay, just to name a few. 
The Steals: Sushi. 
The Con: The hot tapas are so meagerly discounted -- some dishes only a few cents less than regular prices -- that it doesn't really make a difference. 
Lushworthy: 50-cent 6-ounce draft Bud Light and Ziegenbock 

The bottom line: Hot tapas prices are disappointing and so many other restaurants are doing the discounted rolls for happy hour. Go for the $1 nigiri, and bring cash for parking

Yeah, some of the happy hour pricing doesn't add up - last time I was at the one in Plano, I noticed my happy hour appy order was saving me ~20 cents - but that's generally because Zenna isn't particularly pricy to begin with. I still haven't ventured into the West End to check out this iteration, but when I lived in Plano, Zenna was the place for cheap sushi and solid happy hour beer specials, and as far as I know, all prices/specials are the same between the two locations.
