Get Stuffed to the Breaking Point with Zentan's New Kuidaore Menu

Eat a ridiculous amount — because it's tradition, after all.

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

It's out with omakase and in with kuidaore at Zentan.

In lieu of the restaurant's former sushi tasting menu, chef Yo Mastuzaki is introducing a new traditional style of Japanese eating to customers. Kuidaore is a tradition in Osaka (where the chef hails from) that literally translates to "eating oneself bankrupt."

At Zentan, that means a different menu each night for $65 per person. Guests can go for a total of 5-8 dishes, both on-menu and off-menu (there are optional pairings as well). Think dishes like tsukemono pickles, fried chicken, udon noodles, okonomiyaki, Osaka-style beef stew and more. It's available every day during dinner service.
