Sa-Tén: A User’s Guide

Japanese Coffee House | Sweet and Savory Breakfast Toast | Crispy Chicken Katsu | Eclectic Decor

Sample Menu

  • Nori Tama toast spread with egg and mozzarella and sprinkled with green onion, sesame seeds, and nori seaweed
  • Panko-crusted chicken katsu plate with worcestershire sauce, tartar sauce, and green onion
  • Egg-salad sandwich with cucumber and karashi mustard

Where to Sit: Grab a chair by the restaurant’s aquarium: an antique 50s-era television repurposed to house Sa-Ten’s water-breathing residents.

While You’re Waiting: Peruse the colorful collection of vintage Japanese magazines while enjoying a cup of freshly brewed Casa Brazil coffee.

Vocab Lesson
Panko: a type of flaky Japanese breadcrumb used for giving deep-fried foods a light, airy breading. Unlike regular breadcrumbs, panko contains no crust.
Karashi: a Japanese condiment made from the crushed seeds of the mustard plant. It generally has a stronger, spicier flavor and thicker texture than American mustard.

While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Walk along the water and hear the sounds of native songbirds at Boggy Creek Greenbelt, just a few blocks away.

After: Sip cocktails and cold beers in the charming atmosphere of a townhouse-turned-bar at Lustre Pearl | 114 Linden St.
