Just Around the Corner

Yesterday we took a trip over to Ameoba for some new music. Also on the list were a few things from Bed, Bath & Beyond, so we headed across the street. We usually have a bit of lunch at the Baja Fresh but decided we weren’t really in the mood, so we were pleased to find a little place around the corner, just next to The Shops at Schwabs called Zen Zoo. There we ordered some steamed potstickers and summer rolls – perfect light fare for a Sunday afternoon.

After ordering we checked out their second floor and found a wonderful little lounge area that would be great for pre or post Arclight gathering.

On the menu was also a bit of upscale boba fare. They called them Zodiac ZenFusion, which were tea blends (served iced) with soy creamer (all are vegan) for your Chinese Zodiac sign.

The Man ordered the Dragon which was simply green (and I mean it was green) tea and mint while I opted for one of their other items, a barley latte, which is espresso style barley done as a latte. It was kind of like a chai, only more roasty tasty. My only caution is to order them unsweetened. The Man’s Dragon was much too sweet for him, though my barley latte was very drinkable (though I’d prefer it unsweetened too). see bad photo of menu here

  1. Glad you found this place, Cybele!

    When they first opened a few months ago, they only served drinks (no food) due to not having all their permits in order at their grand opening. Since then, I’ve been over there a couple of times for dim sum. Not the best dim sum in the world, but it’ll do if that’s what you’re craving.

    I actually highly recommend their salads, which are huge and yummy.

  2. Yay, more Zen Zoo Tea! They’re expanding – the original is in Brentwood on San Vicente. It’s been a favorite secret writing spot for years, and what got me addicted to boba.
