Chowhound Dinner Review - Zen Pennisula 4/15

Well, first post, and I'm not an expert foodie by any means, but apparently, I got stuck with the review, being the last on at the restaurant. Maybe they were pulling my chain. :P But I don't know review ettiquette, so you'll have to give me a pass on this. Laff, anyways this dinner was host by Alice. She had the glory of posing with the live alaskan king crab we were about to eat.

My overall impression was that it was only okay... The crab wasn't bad, but not entirely memorable for me. We had it 3 ways,

- crab legs fried in some coating
- crab legs split open, with just garlic, and soy sauce
- some egg custard crab dish. (I didn't try, cause I'm weirded out by eggs.)

I thought the best one was simply the plain crab. I thought the salt & pepper calamari was pretty good, but I'm always a sucker for salt and pepper. Apparently, Karen, a real chowhound there, told me that it's what chinese restaurants serve when things aren't fresh. oh well. :P

We had 11 total dishes and or including soup. I'll let people chime in for other dishes, but I feel like I've had better dinners for less. Not quite worth the $35 in my mind.
