Zento ..... Contemporary Japanese Fine Dining - A Degustation Experience

Zento had created a little storm when it open its doors to serve contemporary Japanese food to food-crazy Singaporeans. It seems that Zento's novelty may have died down as I was able to get a last minute reservation, just an hour before our desired dinner time on a Saturday night. However, when we were eating our dinner, the restaurant was eventually got fully occupied .

I wasn't too keen on contemporary cuisine at first, but a few trips to the States open up my receptiveness to contemporary Japanese cuisine (Mikuni Sushi in California is quite good). So there shouldn't be any reason for avoiding Zento especially when it was headed by Chef Gunawan Wibisono, who was a former protege of American Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto.
