Zuzuni: Moussaka, Greek Pita Pizza, and Mati Chocolate Sin


Zuzuni Boracay

Time to spend some money for a dinner and we were brought by our feet to Zuzuni while strolling on the beach. Zuzuni is located at Station 1 beachfront and offers Mediterranean cuisine. Red walls accented with huge mirrors of different designs, candle-light, pillows and comfy seats, Zuzuni provides a cozy and quieter option over the energetic nightlife of bars and clubs in Boracay. 

We were seated at a corner table near the window where we can view the beach, the people passing by, and the night. I find it a good spot with its couch-like seat and romantic ambiance, except for its poor ventilation. We were dependent on the air coming from the door and windows.

I am not a veggie lover and not even fond of eating eggplant. But this moussaka gave me a very similar feeling to eating a lasagna, which is something I love! It was meaty that I didn't really notice a hint of eggplant. It wasn't dry at all, it was really good, and it can serve 2-3 persons. This is recommended for an authentic Greek experience.

Greek Pita Pizza (275Php)

I'm not sure why chose this over the other available pizzas, but I guess it's because it has the "Greek" label on it and we wanted to complete that Greek mood. 

Ordering their pizza isn't really a bad choice as the pizza had a thick crunchy crust and the sauce was okay. However, there's something about the feta and olives that gave a very strong taste making it hard for us to finish it. The tangy salty-sour flavor even became more defined after eating some moussaka and then trying the pizza again. I wasn't sure if it was really supposed to taste that way, or if I'm just not used to a Greek-style pizza.

Mati Chocolate Sin (250Php)

I wasn't really after the dessert when we went to Zuzuni, though this dessert was mentioned to us while we were still checking out the menu. For a price of 250Php for a dessert, we were praying that this should be good!

Our prayers were granted. Man, this is heaven! It was a perfect hot-and-cold combination. The warm chocolate cake was like a cookie with a crispy outer layer and soft filling inside. Oozing on its sides was the sweet chocolate lava, not the bittery type. Paired with it is a scoop of rich and creamy vanilla ice cream

Individually, they were sinfully great. Having them combined...ohh, it's the I-can't-find-the-exact-words feeling to describe how awesome it is. But all I know is that this is a perfect choice to end our dinner.

Dining at Zuzuni might be a little over our budget. But with the overall enjoyment and experience we had, it was worth the money. Our dessert, our finale, was the best thing!
