Remember Zoopa in Southcenter? It is no longer just zoop and salad. Since January, the once-popular eatery has been transformed in what could be characterized as a full-service restaurant with a emphasis on fresh, organic foods.
The salad bar is still there, but it is all organic. The soup is there too, but it is all house-made. New offerings include fresh prepared pasta and stir fry, bakery items and a variety of meat and fish dishes.
Zoopa opened in Southcenter about thirty years ago and developed a strong following. Over time, it lost some of its luster and eventually closed. Regular customers Jerrod and Nikki Sessler of Burien made Zoopa part of a healthy diet in part to help Jerrod fight a cancer he contracted 15 years ago. Fresh food became the centerpiece of his life. The cancer is gone and Sessler points to a changed diet as a key aid in his recovery.Details
