Last night for an early birthday dinner, my friends, Julie and Tim took me out to get sushi at Zento, a contemporary japanese restaurant. The food was delicious, the fish tasted fresh and the hostess is really cute. The restaurant's located on Chestnut St. between 2nd and Front down in Olde City. The place is only has about 10 tables so make sure you have a reservation. We started dinner with my favorite, fried calamari. The calamari was cooked perfectly, the rings were tender and not too chewy and it came with a great Thai spicy sauce.
For dinner we ordered, the Zento Square roll, the Flaming Dragon roll, and the mixed Sashimi plate. The Zento Square roll has eel, avocado, and your choice of tuna or salmon on top. We chose the salmon! It's topped off with a great sauce. The Flaming Dragon roll has tuna, avocado, and eel topped with roe. Both of these choices were great!
The mixed sashimi plate came with 10 pieces of fresh fish. My favorite on this plate was the Wasabi encrusted pan-seared Tuna, yummy!!
If you get the craving for some sushi, definitely check out Zento!
