General House Marks One Year of Serving Sushi In Glen Burnie
General House Sushi has been serving the Pasadena and Glen Burnie communities for the past year at its Mountain Road location, which previously had been known as Tokyo Sushi for 19 years before its current owner, Scott Zou, took over.
General House is known for creating modern interpretations of classic dishes. The sushi is made to order, and staff members pride themselves on using the freshest ingredients possible.
Zou also owns East Delight, a Chinese carryout restaurant in Bowie, but he appreciates the sit-down nature of General House, which also offers carryout and delivery. “Here, we have more time to get to stay with our customers and get to know each other,” Zou said.
Zou learned from a friend how to make sushi three years ago, and while he has a chef at his restaurant to do the majority of the cooking, he often helps out in the kitchen when the restaurant is busy. The celebration rolls are Zou’s personal favorite on the menu.
“Everyone has a dream. My dream is to own a restaurant. I do order carryout Chinese, and I wanted to do something different and more, so that’s why I decided to do this one,” Zou said.
Zou has five employees at his restaurant, and they have helped to build the business, working together with him to keep it running smoothly.
“It’s kind of hard, but every job is hard,” Zou said, “but restaurants gave me a chance to prove my ability and have also helped me to get closer to my American dream.”
The hard work pays off when he hears his customers compliment his food as being “fantastic.” While Zou is new to the Glen Burnie/Pasadena market, he has enjoyed his customers.
“People are nice here,” Zou said. “It’s very good, and we appreciate all the customers who have kept supporting our business since last year. We keep on doing better and better.”
In the future, Zou hopes to continue to grow his business and reach more customers with freshly made sushi.
