I love me a good eat. And nothing pleases me more than scanning my inbox to put together the monthly food column at work. The PRs do good work by putting together informative releases, but it's the pictures that usually slay me. Food photography is the worst thing to happen to my diet since... well, food. And when these things hit the inbox before lunch, it's torture. So I've done you a favour by keeping the food shots after the cut. Click on and don't blame me for what happens next.
Blame my fellow CISer Christian Yang and his wife Judith, the adorable couple pictured above, who have just opened their second restaurant, Zenku, in Nexxus Building in Central. Their first was Bang Bang Pan Pan which is a really cute DIY okinomiyaki joint in Causeway Bay. Innovative Japanese concept restaurants seem to be their thing, but instead of an easy, clean-cut idea like choose-your-own-ingredient pancakes, they've gone high end with modern Japanese ideas like a tonkatsu mille feuille and boeuf bourguignon gyoza (dying here). I do plan to check this place out in person, so I'll update more if/when that happens. Menu highlights from the press release also after the cut.
From the sushi bar, creative sushi options - Zenku Zushi – include Margarita merguro sushi (lean cut tuna with a margarita foam), Sushi of Foie Gras and Peach oyster katsu roll as well as the full range of fresh flown in seafood to be served as traditional sushi and sashimi.
Signature appetisers are Cold soba noodles and ponzu with frozen foie gras, Boeuf bourguignon gyoza, and Prawn and Shiro Miso Cappuccino. Mains include Lazy surf and turf, pork tonkatsu mille feuille and Foie loaded quail.
For dessert, sweet treats include Oven roasted banana in soy caramel, soba crumble and miso ice cream and Sake gelee, strawberries pop rocks, lychee snow and Yakult sorbet.
