April 5, 2010 Zenna Noodle Bar
This might be my go-to Asian take out place these days. Pictured above are the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. So good-and not greasy. There is crab inside as well as a variety of veggies and clear noodles. I could eat a dozen of these, but usually I settle for one order with some chicken fried rice and call it a night.
The chicken fried rice comes with a decent amount of white meat chicken, green onions, white onions, egg, tomatoes and cucumber. It is so light-and again, isn’t greasy at all. It could be a meal itself.
The beef satay is another one of my favorites (also available in chicken). The beef is tender and moist with a great flavor. On cold winter nights I like to get the noodle based soups. Really, you can’t go wrong with whatever you choose here.
Those times that I have dined in, the service is always good. They usually make flowers with your straw wrappers and interesting flowers with your veggies. They have fresh cut flowers every day-it just brightens the place up. You can sit in the bar that is in the front windows and look out onto the street or sit in a table inside.
Zenna is a great place to grab a casual bite when you are in Coolidge Corner.
