I had no idea Zen Modern Asian Bistro was right under my nose! I have been working in this neighborhood for many years. It’s tucked into an unassuming strip mall in the Sabre Springs community of San Diego’s North County. You wouldn’t know it was here just driving by. The restaurant is small but offers table service which I appreciate; plus beer and wine. I ordered one of my go-to Chinese dishes, Kung Pao Chicken and it was excellent! The menu claims it’s “New York Style,” but I wouldn’t know. All I can tell you is it was perfectly wok seared and flavored. It did not include any fussy extra filler ingredients like water chestnuts and what-not. Highly recommend.
