Food can be as simple or creative as your mind can imagine. Zymology 21 is the latter. We’ve heard of other science themed restaurants, but this was our first introduction.
Zymology is the study of fermentation, which includes beer, wine, liquor, pickled food, etc. The restaurant has plenty of seating and the décor has a Chemistry theme which I much appreciated. Did you know I got my degree in Chemistry? :P I don’t talk about it much, since I clearly don’t use it.
Check out how they prep the tea and coffee!
We started off with a flight of their shrubs. Do you know what shrubs are? We had no idea. We learned that shrubs are old school ways of preserving the flavors of fruits and vegetables with vinegar prior to refrigeration. They basically mix these with your choice of spirit, resulting in a pretty colored drink.
We were so intrigued with the shrubs! Plus, they have a fun, fiery presentation.

The Seared Ahi Slider had seaweed salad, which made it refreshing, and the bread had a nice consistency. Their homemade pickles were so good! I love my pickled foods. :)

We had a great time! To top off our visit, they threw us a bubble party! They usually do this for special events or larger parties. It’s definitely an experience as much as it is a dinner and the food is beautifully presented. They also have happy hour from 5-8 daily, which is a great way to try a bunch of their food.
