Here’s the new tasting menu at Zama

There's a new fall tasting menu at Zama in Philly. | Provided

While the weather seems to change day to day, it’s technically fall and while indulgent comfort foods like pastas and the like don’t always make sense on muggier days (like today), sushi is a good idea any day of the year.

Lucky for us, Chef Zama of celebrated sushi staple, Zama (128 S. 19th St.), has recently launched a new tasting menu just in time for the season change. For $100, It includes seven courses, with items like scallop ceviche, Alaskan king crab oshizushi and more. If that hasn’t hooked you, the dessert options are enough to warrant a visit. Did someone say fluffernutter dumplings? 

Here’s the full menu:

Toro tartar with truffle ponzu and kizami wasabi
