10 Best Contest – Zengo

By Kimberly Wiethorn


If  you haven’t gotten out and explored Santa Monica Place – both its shopping and it’s restaurants- you are missing out!

For my second stop using my prize for the Santa Monica 10 Best contest, I had the pleasure of taking a friend and trying Zengo, which is located on the roof of Santa Monica Place.

Although I’m an avid foodie, I sometimes can be skeptical of certain “fusion” cuisines. It can occasionally be too much going on and mask the food but I absolutely loved the Latin- Asian fare Zengo served. We went on an evening and sat in one of the spacious booths on the patio and indulged in a number of their dim sum dishes.  Some of my favorites were  the XO style Edamame, Thai Chicken Empanadas, Shrimp-Vegetable Potstickers,  Charred Tuna wonton tacos, and the lettuce wraps.  The crispy tofu was one of the best tofu dishes I’ve ever had and the sauce
was so flavorful.

I highly recommend checking out this spot- I know I will definitely be back and I might not have tried it if it weren’t for!

Don’t forget, the restaurants in Santa Monica Place offer complimentary valet  for up to 3 hours if you dine there- so it’s convenient even if you aren’t a local like me!
