Giveaway: Win a Gift Certificate to ZENGO

Voted #1 for best Mojito, it’s no surprise that ZENGO (781 7th St. NW), is one of my new favorite places in the city. Offering an artful blend of Latin-Asian styles and flavors, Chef-owner Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico’s Toque d’Oro, spins regional ingredients into beautifully balanced dishes designed for sharing. If you haven’t discovered Zengo, then you’re seriously missing out.

Located in the heart of Gallery Place/Chinatown, ZENGO is walking distance to the Verizon Center and has a beautiful 2-level lounge and dining room, the perfect spot to grab a cocktail after work or enjoy a bite with friends. ZENGO offers scrumptious fare for extremely reasonable prices, especially their new weekday lunch menu. Where else can you get the best of bento boxes, latin-asian sandwiches, and bowls of rice and noodles for cheap?

To celebrate Dining in DC’s 5 year Blogiversary, ZENGO has generously provided a $50 Gift Certificate to one lucky winner! (How many Mojitos can you get for $50?!)

    Masa 14 makes a killer mojito. Even better when enjoyed on the stunning new roof deck!

      Agreed! I love Masa! I was there last night on the roof with a Mojito Modesto! :) Did you know Masa 14 is a sister restaurant to ZENGO?

    For amazing Mojitos, I love to go to Cafe Citron in Dupont Circle or Cubano’s in Silver Spring, MD, especially during Happy Hour!

    Cuba Libre is over-priced and over-rated, but they do make a killer mojito!

    Cuba Libre IS overpriced, but their mojitos remind me of the ones I used to get living in Miami – the city with the BEST mojitos. It’s a taste of home in a glass.

    The mojito at Cafe Atlantico was amazing, too bad it is no more, Jose Andres needs to bring it back asap!

    The old Cafe Salsa in Old Town used to be my spot for mojitos, but I have to agree with some of the other folks who commented. Cuba Libre’s mojitos rock!

    I’ve only had a mojito from Jaspers’ in Greenbelt or from a bottle. It was just ok…

    I have to say that was an award well earned- Zengo’s mojitos are delicious and a total steal during happy hour! Go great with their fried calamari salad and empanadas… Num!

    I know it’s not in D.C but it’s just outside of the lines in downtown silver spring. But Cubano’s has a killer mojito.I’ve not been to Masa 14, but I remember getting a sample of their Mojito at one of the Best of Washington parties, and it was amazing as well.
