1028 Blanshard St.
Zazu is just one of those places I’ve walked past time and time again, it’s never really caught my attention. I was going to go to Devour for lunch just around the corner to give it a second chance, but there was a huge line-up, so on my way back down Blanshard, I peeked inside Zazu and it looked really nice! The decor is modern, nice approachable space. The young lady behind the counter was very pleasant, and she guided me through their lunch offerings. I went for their Clubhouse on housemade foccacia, and paired it with a vegetable broth soup. The portion was generous , the food was fresh( the bread was outstanding), and the price was good( all for under 10 bucks). I enjoyed the atmosphere, and the service was great. I overheard the owners talking ( a husband and wife), so it is a mom and pop establishment. I’m glad I walked in, I’ll definitely be going back for a filling and satisfying lunch! I appreciated their attention to detail, for example: the bacon was cooked perfectly, the sandwich was served open face, the dressing tasted homemade as did the soup, the tomatoes were sliced paper-thin for a pleasant textural element, etc.
