Expires 1/31/20 299 Route 22 East Green Brook, NJ 732-624-9330 By: Diane Crawley Dan Zai Ramen & Sushi House brings comforting home-style Tai- wanese food and modernized Asian fusion cuisine to central New Jersey. Inspired by the owner’s Taiwanese roots, the restaurant pays homage to classic flavors and techniques as well as creat- ing new variations for more adventur- ous eaters, fulfilling their cravings for “something new and different.” Taiwan, a leaf-shaped democratic island, has an incredibly rich food cul- ture, influenced by cuisines from regions of mainland China and Japan. Dan Zai Ramen & Shushi House is named after the Dan Zai or “shoulder pole” that street vendors in Southern Taiwan traditionally used to carry bas- kets containing warm and delicious fresh noodles. The restaurant’s decor and ambience are both whimsical and culturally modern Taiwanese, offering a relaxed, warm, and inviting setting. Dan Zai , a BYOB, presents you with a carefully calibrated progression of dishes, designed to achieve a distinc- tive balance of tastes, colors, and Asian cooking methods and is committed to using freshest ingredients that are sourced locally as much as possible. Dan Zai prides itself with many wonderful options of noodles from the traditional Taiwanese-Style Minced Pork Noodle Soup to the Korean-Style Seafood Noodles. Udon Noodles; a thicker Japanese noodle, is used in a Shrimp Tempura or Seafood Soup. The Ramen options include Pork, Beef, Chicken , or Vegetarian with a choice of Tonkastu, Miso, Spicy Miso, and Vege- tarian broths. The steaming, soul-stir- ring broths are house made. Dan Zai offers a deeply satisfying Dim Sum selection including house made soup dumplings, wontons, and the more exotic Bao, a Chinese Burger made from your choice of beef, pork or duck served with a Peking duck sauce. Hibachi Entrées are served with noodles or fried rice. Traditional Japan- ese Rice Bowls are based on steamed sushi rice with various meat and seafood options. The curry versions are delightfully sweet. The Poke Bowls are cold dishes using either rice or lettuce as a base; easily modified to suit your taste at the time of order. Many vege- tarian selections and options are easily found at Dan Zai as well. The restau- rant’s Sushi Bar showcases an extensive menu of various sushi and sashimi, as well as a unique Sushi Pizza , and a crowd favorite starter of fresh G ua- camole and Taro Chips . Dan Zai invites you to end your dining experience by trying Taiwanese Shaved Ice or Snow Ice. You are also encouraged to explore exotic flavors of Ice Cream like Red Bean and Black Sesame as well as variations of Bubble Tea, including most popular Thai Milk Tea and Mango Fruit Tea, with your choice of toppings: Tapioca, Popping or Jelly.
