Zen Curry Express
Address: 7835 S. Rainbow Blvd.
Status: Opens today
Chinatown's Curry Zen, the Japanese curry house neighbor to Raku, Monta and Kabuto, debuts its second location today, alongside new neighbors Pin Kaow Thai, Jenni Pho and Pot Tea Social House.
First revealed back in October, the 1,106-square-foot former 911 Pizza space has room for 29 inside and the "Express" part of the name is derived from a new "self service element" designed to help speed up the ordering process.
Already promoted for the new location "Kushi Curry with cheese" on skewers, "fried gyoza" dumplings toppings and "chicken katsu curry with corn & almond slices!" In Chinatown, Curry Zen allows guests to chose the personal heat level of their curry, with the spicy heat index rising to a bold level 10.
