Zipang moved from Main & 21st to Main & 15th (across the street from Brewery Creek) and renamed themselves as Zipang Provisions. I love the inside and the food’s not bad! Worth another visit!
I think this sign means that they’re open until midnight today? They open for Saturday lunch at 11:30am.
Weekend lunch menu. I think the prices are good.
BBQ Eel dish sounds interesting. But I wonder where they get their eel from? All the Japanese people I talk to refuse to eat eel farmed in China. That’s all the cheap eel you see in practically all Japanese restaurants and supermarkets in town.
I love their menus! Denim, leather and studs! I caressed it.
Cute pocket in the back.
I gotta come back to try their nibbly specials.
Now I know what “zipang” means.
I went with the “Mille-Feuille Pork Cutlet Combo”. Sounded the most interesting after the “Beef Tendon Curry”.
They have a cool long table! And the owner guy dresses niiiice. He matches the menu! Leather and denim!
Brewery Creek is just across the street.
Another shot of the inside.
Miso soup was hot and not too salty. Slices of daikon and carrot inside.
Standard salad with ponzu dressing.
Agedashi tofu with eggplant. Sauce needed a bit more saltiness.
Here’s the combo (minus salad that I already ate).
Crispy! But I think they should use either the rack or the paper, not both, so the oil actually has a chance to fall away from the cutlet.
Unexpectedly got two sauces. Standard “bulldog”-like sauce on the left and delicious hoisin on the right.
A bit hard to see, but it’s called “mille feuille” cuz they use layers of thinly sliced pork inside instead of a whole chop.
Good rice too. Pretty tasty lunch.
You can see the layers a bit clearer here. Probably should be called “quatre feuille” instead! One negative is that it’s a bit dry. The parts near the edge (presumably where the fat is) were better. Love it with the sauce though!
Would love to come back and try out more of their menu!
