Ponzu in Waltham

Just went to Ponzu for dinner with four. New restaurant over on Moody St. in Waltham that, by my accounts, deserves some patronage.

The best way to describe it is as they do, "Asian Taps". They have small plates that range from like $4 to $10, and large plates from about $11 to $20. One should definitely think more along the lines of Tapas ordering schemes rather than traditional Asian cuisine.

The wait staff was speaking Mandarin Chinese, but the food is definitely of the "Pan Asian" ilk. Smatterings of Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Indian are all there -- with their own little twists.

We ordered (from memory) hot ribs, beef l'orange, gyozas, several rolls, tuna lollipops, chicken curry, and probably some more stuff.

All of it was very quickly prepared, brought out hot, and extremely satisfying. Each dish was well presented and very tasty and unique.

I don't know what else to say except try it out if you are in the mood for pan-Asian or little bits of everything, Tapas-style.

If anyone has questions, fire away!

(Bill was ~$88 before tip for four, no drinks.)
