Last week, a group of business owners from Localshops1 met for a networking lunch. It's fun dining with numerous people as you can sample a lot more food and see many different menu items.
We met at Souzou in downtown St. Petersburg. I have driven by this location hundreds of times and never knew this building housed a fabulous restaurant.
There will be more pictures of the inside later - but let's get to the food!!! We started off with some fabulous appetizers.
Spicy Edamame ($5)
Tsukunel - pork and beef meatballs with sweet hoisin sauce and fresh Asian slaw ($8)
Gyoza - pork and cabbage potsticker with ginger bacon glaze and shoyu vinaigrette ($7)
There are three tempura tacos to an order ($9) Made with tempura fried mahi, cabbage, yuzu salsa and chili aiolo; these tacos will have your tastebuds doing a tango!
Everything in Souzou is extremely clean. The bathrooms are quite large and roomy.
Sunset Menu available on weekdays from 5pm-7pm.
