As a Japanese food lover, I usually keep an eye on the right places to eat such deli. Therefore, it was natural to attend, early this month, the opening of the newest Japanese restaurant in town – Zen Sushi Dorobanti. One of the reasons I enjoyed hearing of it is the good chain they have already been running in Bucharest, so, in theory, I told myself it would be a new quality work.
My expectations were definitely met. Starting with the high end location and the design and carrying on with the Japanese specialties, Zen Sushi is an excellent choice for those less or more initiated. I loved the tasting session during the opening event with delicious maki, nigiri, sashimi and other highlights of the hot cuisine, completed by a great demonstration at the Sushi Bar and the Teppanyaki as well as the famous Tea Ceremony, which everybody invited loved.
I felt closer to Japan at the Zen Sushi Dorobanti, because of the design blending natural elements – in the true Japanese spirit – wood, stone, dark colors, dim lights and a beautiful terrace garden – making you feel truly Zen – a central traditional Tatami table, the Sushi Bar and the table for Teppanyaki, where the cooks prepare the food in front of the clients.
Make sure you don’t miss it if you enjoy Japanese food!
