Zen Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar is located at Beacon Hill. A popular area that is a mere minutes walk away from Boston Common and the State House.
After some decadent eating in New York and my Lobster dinner a day earlier, I just wanted something light. Japanese seems to fit the bill and Zen Jap Grill & Sushi Bar was chosen as the venue for dinner.
Seeing that this place has Japanese Grill in its name, I scoured the menu looking for grill stuff but couldnt not find anything actually. I was excited to see Nasu Dengaku on the menu although this comes with bonito flakes? Nevertheless, it was ordered along with a chef's special.
Nasu Dengaku $5.95
I was quite disappointed with the Nasu dengaku. The skim was removed which I guess makes for easy eating? I think this was parboiled and topped with bonito flakes. It lacks the punch and depth that the miso would give.
Zen Tekkaa Don $13.95
