Zengo: Where Residents of 77 H Indulge in the Flavors of Latin-Asian Fusion Fare
If you head to the Zengo website and click on “Press,” you’ll be met with dozens of positive culinary reviews of this DC restaurant that stretch back over the past decade. As you page through the reviews, you’ll notice that the same details get mentioned again and again: Chef Richard Sandoval draws on his Mexican culinary heritage to create vibrant flavors using only fresh, high quality ingredients; the kitchen turns out innovative fusion dishes that are colorfully and artfully presented on the plate; and Zengo’s sleek modern dining room creates an atmosphere of elegance and excitement.
All that’s left is to try the food and see what all the fuss is about! Regulars suggest that you start with one of the popular seafood dishes: a bay scallop ceviche, perhaps, seasoned with Thai chiles, peanuts, and mint, or maybe you’d prefer the “volcano” sushi roll, featuring spicy crab, salmon, and a sesame-chipotle aioli. Whatever you order, Zengo is likely to become one of your new go-to spots near 77 H!
