Zimzala Restaurant Review: Located inside the Shorebreak Hotel, Zimzala soothes the soul with a Zen atmosphere and retro chic style that runs in refreshing contrast to the party vibe that populates the Main Street neighborhood a couple blocks over. The contemporary cuisine feels familiar, yet is tweaked just enough to give dishes a fun, lively quality. (Roy Hendrickson has left his post as executive chef.) Starters range from soft pretzels paired with a beer-infused cheese to Manila clams served with roasted dried corn and smoked bacon. More substantial openers include grilled prawns with an ancho-preserved lemon sauce, as well as flatbreads, such as the classic margherita or fresh fig. Main courses shine, as demonstrated by items like the cider-brined pork chop and mustard-parsley spätzle and the black salt-crusted skirt steak with Yukon potato purée. Top your meal off with a German chocolate waffle or a couple scoops of ice cream. A solid array of international wines and local beers is available. Breakfast features healthy options alongside indulgent offerings, such as chilaquiles and thick french toast with sour cherry syrup.
