I needed a light bite before catching Django Unchained(which was awesome!) and a beverage or two couldn’t hurt either. Since the flick started at 7pm I figured a a good happy hour spot with some food would be great and Zengo has the best happy hour in Murry Hill. Not only does Zengo have have drink Specials…but food as well. I started with a Margarita($8) while my cousin tried their sangria($6…beers are $4)
Zengo offers a nice variety of appetizers on their Happy Hour menu split into 3 categories, Tacos, Cocas (Spanish flat breads) and Sushi Rolls. We split Carne Asada tacos(2)Mahi Mahi tacos(2), a Spicy tuna toll (8 pieces), and the Chorizo and Blue Cheese flat bread. Zengo has really tasty food and everything was great with the nice thick slices of Mahi Mahi in the tacos and Chorizo Cocas standing out.
When our bartendress saw that the plates were practically licked clean she asked if we liked the food…I being oh so clever said “nah, send them back please” with a smile…she replied smiling ” oddly enough not the first time I’ve had that …yet still so funny…:) I replied…Really…first time I’ve said it…smile intact…:) As tempted as I was for another margarita and just as things were getting interesting… it was time to leave for the flick…just as the place started to fill up with more attractive women…
Zengo is located at 622 3rd Avenue. Happy Hour is available in the downstairs lounge goes 5:30pm to 8pm
