October is THE month to go to Zen Asian BBQ -one of my all time favorite Naples restaurants. Make your next dining out day a Zen Day!
WHY? Every night, the entire dinner menu is 50% off from 4-6 p.m.. Yes, 50% OFF!!
Also, every Monday from 4-close the Korean BBQ is 50% off. This is a must-try, as you sit at a special table with the grill built into the center of the table. Call ahead to reserve a spot for this.
Every Tuesday-Sushi rolls are half off all night from 4-12 p.m..
The newest dish at Zen is the huge A-Zen Hot Pot- the Asian version of fondue ($20 before discount.) It's enough for two or three people. First, a large metal bowl is set over a butane stove, and about two quarts of broth are heated. Then spinach, carrots, mushrooms, bok choy and carrots are heated. As it comes to boiling, teh heat is turned down, and the very high quality pork, wagyu beef, and/or chicken is added. In less than a minute, the protein is cooked! I like to add the minced garlic, a spritz of lime, and a touch of hot sauce to my portion.
Start off with a serving of crispy gyoza, succulent chicken and pork dumplings, dipped in a just hot enough sauce ($7.95). Add an ice cold Ichiban beet or Riff Pinot Grigio. Then try different dishes at these prices!

And desserts? My all time special is the Cocoa in a Jar, with luscious layers of vanilla ice cream, fruits, lychee boba, mochi, crushed Oreos and Belgian chocolate!
