Zen Mei Bistro--Mini Review

Augusta | Sep 8, 200601:05 PM     3

Had a very enjoyable and filling dinner at Zen Mei in Chinatown last night.
There were 3 of us so we each chose a dish--mine was the house special won ton soup. For around five dollars you get a huge bowl filled with meaty wontons, squid, shrimp, pork, and vegetables. I really liked the brothy soup it was immersed in--very tasty.
The other two dishes were the Chinese broccoli and beef--again, a huge portion of beef on top of sauteed broccoli. Quite good! The third dish was the scallops with snow peas and water chestnuts. This was okay, a little too much garlic for me, and perhaps not enough scallops.
BTW, Zen is celebrating their 1 year anniversary, so if you order a minimum of $20, you get a free plate of their crispy, salty shrimp. I think this is actually one of their best dishes--very large shrimp, crispy and delicious.

I think our bill came to around $23 for the whole dinner plus we came home with lots of leftovers.
Enjoy!
