Savannah Saturdays-Zunzis

By Shawndrarussell
I'm embarrassed to admit that we have never been to Zunzis. Zunzis is like a "thing" in Savannah with a line down the sidewalk pretty much from 11-4 every day. It is a South African (basically meanings lots of sauces and spices) walk-up window joint, and the owner is right there in the thick of the assembly line where they crank the music, crack jokes, and slap together messy blobs of goodness. They cook up meat right there while you wait, throw it on a salad, wrap, or sub, put on tons of yummy sauces, cheeses, lettuce, and a few veggies, and the result is a big, juicy, super-messy piece of heaven that I am now officially obsessed with.
Gary ordered the "Godfather" which was chicken, marina sauce, spicy Zuznis special sauce, and the Zunzi salad dressing, sausage, and mozarella and provolone cheeses, and Parmesan on top. I ordered the "Curry Sunrise" which was chicken mixed with their homemade yellow curried veggies, cheese, sauces, and lettuce. Very good, but Gary's was absolutely to die for--I kept sneaking bites of his especially the pieces that dropped out. They throw it in a container, and you can take it home or go sit in their great little outdoor patio area. Go early or late--NOT from 12-2, or you will be waiting at least 30 minutes (even though it's totally worth it anyway!).
