El Zaziummm is a colourful place to dine. Three locations spread across the east part of Montreal, most locations in the funky Plateau neighbourhood. It’s quite funky and ecclectic in its decor. With toilet paper rolls used as napkins, this place serves Tex-Mex-Californian fare in a creative way. The menu resembles a comic book and the dcor is described as bright, colourful, and animated.
Some dishes include Lili’s punch (rum, pineapple, lemon, lime) a beverage that arrives at your table in a beach bucket complete with plastic shovel! “Folle cuisine de plage” (crazy beach cooking) is the slogan. It looks like the unholy trinity (Acapulco gold, tequila and tropical sun) all conspired against the decorators.
Other items include Nachos, guacamole, shrimp cocktail, gazpacho, beef or chicken tacos, fajitas, California hamburger, and chicken cactus salad. Prices are from $7.95-$12.95. Many vegetarian options. Accepts all cards.
