For dining in Boracay, there are a good number of nice restaurants scattered all over the island; each offering their own specialty dishes or recipes.
Of particular interest are the restaurants located along the beachfront of the popular White Beach strip. One such restaurant is Zuzuni, popular among guests who are looking for authentic Greek cuisine.
Roughly translated, Zuzuni means “cute little bug,” a popular term of endearment among Greeks. The restaurant’s name is already a dead giveaway, being a Greek word; one can expect authentic Greek cuisine here.
There are however, other choices on their menu, specifically Mediterranean fares. American-inspired meals are likewise available, particularly for breakfast: banana pancakes, bacon and waffles.
Their specialties of course, are their Greek-inspired dishes. Guests especially love the Moussaka, a type of dish that combines layers of meat and eggplant covered in white sauce and then baked.
It looks like your usual lasagna except that it has eggplants, too. Zuzuni also boasts of its own version of gyros, roasted meat with onions and tomatoes served in a pita bread and tzatziki sauce.
Other popular items in their menu include the Greek pita pizza topped with feta cheese and olives; and Kolokythakia Tiganita, a fried zucchini dish.
For dessert, a must-try is the Mati Chocolate Sin. This is a flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream on the side. The delectable surprise comes when you cut the cake – out will come warm melted chocolate.
Price range is from US$ 10 to US$ 15 for a complete meal, including drinks.
The interiors of the restaurant are quite cozy and minimalist in design. On the walls, there are several Grecian mirrors which give you the illusion of being more spacious than it actually is.
There are also table and chairs outside overlooking the beachfront which provides for a romantic dinner under the stars in the evenings.
The couch seats are neatly lined against the wall and tables for two are placed in front of these couch seats.
Zuzuni is actually the restaurant part of Zuzuni Hotel and Restaurant and is situated in Station 1. It is easily accessible from the main Jetty Port Road and is a few meters off D’Mall.
Banquet services are provided by Zuzuni upon request for 40 up to about 100 guests.
Zuzuni may be reached at telephone number: +63 36 288 4477 or mobile numbers: +63 908 862 0031 and +63 908 893 9841.
