Zankou's Secret?

RoachCoach | Dec 21, 2005 01:21 AM

I'm trying to like Zankou. Been 4or5 times and this time I ordered extra garlic sauce...and squeezed it out of the cup onto my tarna....I know I'm going to offend some hounds but....

This sauce gives me chills...the creepy kind.

Tastes like 80% COLD LARD. Is this their secret? I'm all for lard when it's hot and right, like at a great ramen shop like Daikokuya as a frying tool. But this is just wrong.

I totally agree with the poster who recommended Hrazdan (sp?) in Whittier. Their garlic sauce blows Zankou AWAY. Tastes like olive oil, lemon and 99 %fresh garlic.
