Yet once again, I’ve returned to Zencu. By now, you’re thinking that I go to this place every week but actually, I’ve gone there maybe about 12 times since they opened.
This time, I tried their seaweed salad and found the dressing to be tasty. I don’t usually order seaweed salad but I felt like pretending to be healthy for a change.
Next, the big test for a “fake” Japanese restaurant: Cold Soba. They pass, but not with flying colors. The noodle itself was cooked properly and tasted fine. However, the dipping sauce was too sweet for my taste. I like mine a little more salty. I’ll probably not order it again but it’ll pass for less picky eaters.
Finally, I finished it off with some Nigiri sushi, a la carte and as before, it was acceptable but nothing to write home about.
As before, this is a great place to hang with your friends and drink some beer during happy hour, and enjoy some good Japanese eats.
