Drove up to Public Greens with Bobbi for lunch today. Despite the drizzle outside, the joint was jumpin'.
Bahn Mi Lettuce WrapsIn front of me are (clockwise from top):
Pork Loin, Pork Pate, Pickled Carrot & Radish, Scallions & Cilantro, Chiles, Maggi Sauce
Olive Oil Drizzle, Roasted Peppers
1st of the Season Basil...and the pièce de résistance...
Dank Pesto, Chick Peas, Carrots, Radish, Scallions, Quinoa
Pork NuggetsOn sampling one of the pork nuggets,which were cubes of some rich bacon deep-fried w/o batter (so it's gluten free, if that's your thing!) Bobbi declared "I've found a new religion..." as her eyes practically rolled back in her head. The rhubarb-chipotle BBQ sauce was delish. That was a big ol' bowl brim-lippin' full of umame right there.
Deep Fried Bacon, Pickled Scallions, Rhubarb Chipotle BBQ
Truthfully, either of the two bottom bowls would have made a dandy meal in its own right for me, especially given how rich the pork nuggets were. Needless to say, a takeout container was required.
