Over budget and not even that good. We gave Taco Time another try. We would love to support them. Local and eco-conscious and all. Just the food is really not that satisfying.
One of our favorite places to eat by far. Pollo Pierna is cheap and a perfect lunch or dinner. We also get the 5 taco plate that comes with soda (both $7). Score!
Within budget is we would have only ordered one dish for take out and shared it on the pier, but it was Date Night out in town and we sat down and had way too much food. :-)
After we walked to Underground Comedy for a show.
Calzones were on the Lunch menu and delicious. Around $10 each. Great. The space still takes a bit of getting used to with outdated, dusty decor and a couple other things that made us giggle (or cringe). Pizza for take out next time.
Second attempt getting the thing with the salad bar right. ;-) Brought some salad mix from home this time. We were very proud we got out of this very expensive store spending less than $15. Almost all items we picked first where $7 or more and we had to put them back. So, we opted for the cheapest options after some browsing.
We had a fantastic view at the Hamilton Viewpoint Park, a cozy spot behind the hedge separating us from the parking lot, great weather and lots of healthy food. And we even had dessert: a chunky chocolate chip cookie!
Can't share the receipt and while it was a great idea to buy a salad mix in the store and then spice it up with $4 worth of deli bar items, I didn't plan on my hungry husband. He picked what he wanted and his box was very heavy and already way over $15. ;-) But it's doable if I would have picked for the two of us. Next time...
Beef Stew is usually around $10. If there is a $5 Pho or a filling appetizer for me, it would work. In this case I was hungry and ordered a Vermicelli Bowl and we went over budget up to $20.
Liebe geht durch den Magen!
