ZENGO… You go!

Wow!  That has to be the first thought that comes to mind when I think of this restaurant.  Before last night, I had never been here before.  In fact, in spite of the many numerous times I had passed the place, I had never even “heard of it.”

It wasn’t until my good friend Darin, who was in town with his new fiancée, suggested the place that I had any inkling to venture inside.

Zengo, which translates to “give ‘n take”, merges flavors of Mexican with that of Asian cuisine.  It’s adjacent to the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro.  I couldn’t tell you what we had, because I didn’t do any of the ordering.  All I know is that there were dumplings, sushi, tacos, lettuce wraps, and other delectables.  The only thing I really didn’t enjoy was the tofu.

Will I go back again?  Definitely!  The problem is that I may have to wait until Darin and Cherie come back out to DC so I know what to order.

    Mmmmmm, sounds wonderful. Just curious. How did they serve the tofu?

    I have to disagree. I thought Zengo was trying to be trendy and it just fell flat. The food was good but it didn’t pop in my mouth; almost like it was trying to do too much.
