A newbie from the King and I peeps

How about some creme brulee made with Thai coffee? It's the signature dessert at the new Zen on Ten Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar (1000 Northside Dr. at Tenth St., 404-879-0999).

The owner is Tom Phing, who also owns the King and I, one of the city's first Thai restaurants. It opened at Ansley Square on Piedmont Road about 30 years ago.

Zen on Ten, as the full name suggests, features a broader menu than the King and I in that it includes Japanese dishes, principally sushi and sashimi, as well as Thai specialties.  My favorite dish has been this radiant plate of yellowtail with serrano chilies, a bit of garlic and yuzu soy sauce and parsley puree.

Look for more in this week's "Grazing."
