Zen

Phone:  +(84 8) 3825 0782

Type: Japanese Restaurant

Zen boasts a popular lounge and a number of private rooms where patrons can dine shoeless upon tatami mats in traditional Japanese fashion. Perhaps the most unique feature of the restaurant is the yakitori station located behind a glass window toward the rear of the room.

The highlight of the evening was the Zaru Udon ($7 USD)-chilled, wheat-based noodles topped with shredded nori (seaweed) and served on a zaru, a sieve-like bamboo tray. A dashi (stock) broth comprised of mirin (rice wine), sugar, kelp, dried bonito flakes and shoyu (light soy sauce) accompanied the noodles along with pickled cucumbers and thinly sliced spring onions. The noodle’s texture was luxuriously thick, and they tasted phenomenal dipped in the light and salty broth with scattered bits of scallions.
