Restaurant Review: Zenbu Japanese and Korean in Airdrie AB

Went to Zenbu this evening with wife and 2 yr old son, all left very happy.  Started with a fabulous amuse-bouche of fried tofu, pickled radishes and carrots and fresh bean sprouts tossed in a soy vinaigrette.  From there moved on to Miso soup and  tempura - both of which were a huge hit.

For our mains, we began had Shake (atlantic salmon) sashimi and sushi, very cold and obviously cut right from the main.  Very good, but was better after it sat for a few moments to finish coming to temperature. (The squeeze bottle soy sauce was also good for a giggle out of the little one.)

From there, we also enjoyed a dynamite roll w/ spicy sauce, avocado roll and mango paradise roll, the latter being a true delight.  Fresh mango, Avocado, Crab, Pineapple and Capelin roe topped with a sweet mango sauce. No need for dessert after that one!

Service was always attentive, although our bill could have come a little bit quicker at the end.  Atmosphere was fabulous, with a very diverse crowd of Airdrie residents spanning all ages.

We will absolutely visit again, and hope this local gem is here for years to come!
