In his famous classical conditioning experiment, Ivan Pavlov proved that it’s physically impossible for a Russian scientist's mouth not to water after hearing the word kabob. Moisten your own sandwich receptacle with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of kabobs, roll-ups, made-to-order fare, and drinks at Zoёs Kitchen. This Groupon is good at the Kitchen's Riverside and Ponte Vedra Beach locations.
With a vibrant décor featuring more colors than a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, Zoёs is an energetic and flavorful stop for good-for-you grub. A healthy recipe breathes new life into the Zoёs original chicken-salad sandwich with white chicken on seven-grain bread, while seameat cravers can feast on the Mediterranean tuna pita, stuffed generously with tuna, capers, red onions, olives, lettuce, and tomato (all sandwiches are $6.95). Toastier tastes include quesadillas ($6.95 with $1 extra for grilled chicken), a warm melt of spinach, scallions, and feta; and chicken kabobs ($8.95) skewered with green peppers, cherry tomatoes, and red onions over a rice pilaf and Greek salad. Zoёs also offers salads, side dishes, and the decadent Yaya's homemade chocolate sheet cake ($2 a slice).
Fresh ingredients and clever recipes make Zoёs a no-brainer for anyone still suffering side effects from falling off a mechanical horse. The casual, upbeat eatery whips up creative, nostalgic nibbles that transport diners back to the days of paper dolls, swing sets, and art-class smocks. Founded in 1995 in Alabama, the national phenomenon now has 36 locations across the country. Redeem this Groupon for dine-in or carryout.
