Food & Drink


Located on a quiet street connecting Keyaki-dori and Kego-hondori, Zelliges’ bright yellow building stands out noticably. And it deserves to because this little place is a gem! The owner and chef Mizuta has combined years of experience cooking both French and Vietnamese cuisine with his latest passion, for Moroccan food. Elegant curry dishes are the center pieces of his menu. Deft use of spices results in savory flavors that are smooth on the palate. The Chicken and Vegetable Curry is a tomato-based soup with roasted chicken. Our favorite, however, is the Lamb Spinach Curry. Add a dash of fresh lemon to the thick curry paste served in a sizzling hot iron pot and savor the aroma! Also recommended is the Vietnamese green papaya salad, home-made sausages and Moroccan beer. The restaurant’s blend of chai (middle-eastern royal milk tea) is a delicious way to finish off your meal. Zelliges is perfect as either your daily diner or a special retreat to share with good friends. The attention to detail in both the food, interior and service is wonderful. Like the curries themselves, Zelligies serves up simple sophistication.
