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

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


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.
