This quick-serve Asian eatery nestled in downtown Salt Lake City uses the Café Rio model of building your meal in front of you to your specifications. Choose from Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, Korean tacos or an Asian-inspired salad, topped with your choice of meat (or tofu) and your desired combo of veggies— carrot daikon, ginger scallion, cilantro, green beans, onions and more. Rice (brown, white or rice noodles) bowls are also available, filled with the aforementioned accoutrements plus Zao’s housemade green curry, chili lemongrass sauce or sweet soy sauce. The meals are easily portable, or can be enjoyed in the restaurant’s modern dining room.
