My Place of Peace 9/14/2007

Zennubian is my place of peace. My special special and I go every weekend for the yummy brunch. Everyone that works there is so relaxed and peaceful and just fun, cool and knowledgable(i ask a lot of questions). Pros: great vegan food, good variety, amazing salads, friendly service, nice to have another brunch spot, huge portions Cons: can be slow (but who cares in such a great space with lots to do to entertain yourself) more

An very unique --yes, odd--experience 8/2/2007

Zen Nubian's character is the result of trying to create an original image and mystique by combining the zen (Chinese / Buddhah / Yoga / Spiritual) with the nubian (African / Black / African American) cultures, icons and meanings. Yeah, it's an odd mix--and as hard to pull off as it is to explain! Pros: Great sandwiches, wraps and salads Cons: Odd- but interesting mix of cultures and decor. No utensils offered but chopsticks more

no zen here 7/8/2007

We stumbled across Zennubian while driving through Castleberry and decided to give it a shot. It happened to be Sunday afternoon, so they offered a brunch menu. I ordered a bagel with veg sausage, tofu, veggies, and rosemary potatoes, with a side of cheese jalepeno grits. Sounds delicious, right? WRONG. I could SQUEEZE the butter out of my bagel (why wouldn't the chef put it on the side?), my lettuce was so soaked in butter I couldn't eat it, and the tofu was bland and not scrambled. Oh, and the grits: if you are from the south, you should definitely NOT order these. First, they smelled as if they had fermented somehow. Second, they were the color of strained carrots. Finally, there were no jalepenos in the grits, only a squirt of hot sauce. The meal's only saving grace was the potatoes. I would have liked to season my food, but no salt and pepper on the table. I would have liked to scrape some of the butter off my bagel, but no silverware. The restaurant only offers chopsticks, which wouldn't suffice. I would have liked to sweeten my iced tea to my own liking, but sugar/honey/agave are not provided on the table. In fact, they charge EXTRA for it. The tea was already $5, the agave nectar was 0.75 more, and I couldn't even taste it. Meanwhile, my husband ordered water, which was served in a sake bottle with a tiny sake glass for him to drink from. Get over your image, Zennubian! Pros: lots of teas to choose from Cons: very pricey tea, considering they don't provide sugar, agave, or honey free of charge more
