This place has great noodle dishes. Some of them are spicier than others. It was very busy with students and the service was fast.

We wanted something quick & casual after hiking. Pasta sounded good so we picked Zmarik. I had the Z'asisn salad with bow tie pasta, chicken & spinach paired with a Leinenkugals cranberry ginger beer...and a super moist chocolate chip cookie. Excellent!!!!
