Zen Box Izakaya

Map & Directions 602 Washington Ave. S.
Minneapolis, MN 55455


City Pages' Description

The Japanese food at Zen Box has been a Minneapolis skyway favorite for years, serving takeout boxes of sticky rice, gyoza, grilled meats, and other simple lunch fare. Now the owners have opened Zen Box Izakaya--a bigger, warmer second location on Washington Avenue focusing on Japanese pub food. Try the rich and satisfying kimchi ramen bowl with its savory broth and soft-poached egg; Japanese-style curry with housemade pickles; skewers of grilled squid with ponzu; chicken kara-age, Japan’s answer to fried chicken; seaweed salad; and mashed potato croquettes with lump crab meat. The lunch bento boxes are a great value served with edamame, gyoza, miso soup, and cabbage salad, alongside your chosen entree.

    The $8 hot sake bottle is the best drink deal on the menu. More than enough to get two people tipsy.

    Try the octopus balls. :)

    Order the Yakisoba! With a boiled egg & soy sauce, yumm.

  • Marcos L. on 09/22/11

    Try the Takoyaki, battered octopus with mayo. Absolutely stunning.
