From a distance we are a bit disappointed as we approach 108E York St and see no line of patrons standing outside. We suspect that business is so good that Zunzi can afford to be closed on a Sunday afternoon.
Nonetheless our curiosity about this highly reviewed restaurant has us wanting to take a closer look and maybe get a peek of the menu.
Turns out our curiosity happens to be a good thing because pasted on the door along with other items is a “treasure map”. To our delight there is a new location for Zunzi which is just short walk from this location which has now become Zunzi Express.
Arriving at 9 Daughty Street we are given a smiling and friendly welcome by a bartender who tells us that the kitchen does not open until 6pm. With only about thirty minutes to wait we cannot refuse her offer to come in and have a drink while we wait.
Free samples of various micro brew beers and the time almost passes too quickly. Our order of humus comes out of the kitchen a little before 6pm. Served with warm pita slices it is fresh and delicious.
We share “The Godfather” and we are glad we did. Even cut in half it is monstrous.
Loaded with soft and flavorful pieces of chicken breast, lettuce, marinara sauce, tomato along with a sausage link and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and provolone if you so desire.
Wow, what a delight.
Although pleasantly stuffed with my meal our bartender make one more offer that I cannot refuse. I am given a “to go cup” with a sample of their South African Tea which contains Rooiboos along with peach, vanilla and coconut flavors. I doubt I have tasted a better ice tea.
At its new location which offers sit down dining in a nice atmosphere with occasional live music, eating at Zunzi is an opportunity not to be missed in Savannah.
