Give and Take

I can't wait to go back to Zengo.

Still, even after a bad end to a good night (and another twenty-minute wait for the privilege of paying for it all), as I walk out the door I get the same feeling I had the last time I left Zengo. I want to go back. I want to try the oxtail and shiitake tamale, the hokkien noodles and the last of the three ceviches. I want to taste the roasted and honey-seared plantains, arrepas with hoisin, every fish in the sea. I want to eat my way through a menu that sounds like weird, discordant flavor poetry, everything hanging on the ability of a few overworked, overstressed cooks to make sense out of nonsense. Because Zengo's kitchen crew has sold me on this whole Latino-Asian thing.
