With fast food at nearly every corner and high grocery store prices, it can be hard to nourish your body with healthy foods.

Lav Hysa, owner of Zardin Healthy Eatery, wants to provide the Myrtle Beach area with a healthy food option. This restaurant, while heavily focused on unique salads, is for salad-lovers and non salad-lovers, he said.

“I’m one of them. I never liked salads,” Hysa said. “For me, they can be very, very bland, no flavor. In my mind, it’s difficult to find a good one. Most places, you’re gonna get lettuce and tomatoes and cucumbers. Our salads are super food salads. We combine so many ingredients. Everything is organic. Our number one priority is to find local farmers and get everything fresh and keep it fresh.”

One of Zardin’s jam-packed salads is the Blue Cheese Cobb. According to the menu, this salad contains chopped romaine, onions, tomatoes, blue cheese, roasted chicken, hard boiled egg, bacon bits, avocado and herbal ranch.

Hysa said that Zardin’s menu has options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast bowls, fresh-pressed juices, pastries, protein shakes, toasts donned with healthy ingredients, coffee and wellness shots are also on the menu.

Both from Greece, Hysa and his girlfriend founded Zardin. The name, Zardin, Hysa said, is a combination of the Spanish word for garden, which is jardín, and the Greek word for life, zoe. This couple sees Zardin as a garden that produces fresh and filling meals that enable customers to live life in a healthy way.

Zardin is hiring. Hysa said that if applicants do not have restaurant experience, then they must have “a love and a passion to learn.”

Zardin Healthy Eatery is located in Market Common at 3077 Howard Avenue, Myrtle Beach, SC, 29577. The restaurant is open everyday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., except for on Sundays as they close at 6 p.m..
