Somebody Else’s Kitchen
Awhile back (I think when I was doing some kind of Christmas shopping) I walked by a cute little restaurant getting ready for it’s grand opening. Of course the word “kitchen” caught my eye 😉
There just happened to be someone official-looking setting a table up outside so I asked her what the place was going to be. It was Zoe’s Kitchen, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant that prides itself on using fresh ingredients. Hello, sounds good to me! The woman gave me two coupons for a free meal, a reusable cup, and a divine piece of chocolate cake! (I wasn’t special- they were setting up a booth to give this stuff out to everyone that walked by.) I remember digging into that piece of cake while I was wrapping Christmas presents!
Anyways, I noticed the coupons expired TODAY!! Oh no! I can’t believe I hung on to them this long without using them, but out of sight, out of mind. The husband finally got home from his business trip, so I dragged him there for an early dinner. 😉
It’s a really cute place! Kind of like a modernized cafeteria I’d say.
I got the Spinach Roll-Ups: tortillas, mozzarella, fresh mushrooms, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, scallions, and salsa. Plus a side of roasted vegetables.
I was a little surprised how small the portion was, considering the price on the menu. It was actually the perfect amount of food, but I’d have been disappointed I didn’t have leftovers if I’d actually paid for it 😉
The veggies were pretty good- you could taste that they really had been roasted. Plus, I love when restaurants offer healthier sides like fruit and veggies instead of the standard pasta or potatoes. These were a little drenched in oil, but they still tasted fresh and crunchy.
The roll-ups were good too, but they were definitely lacking almost everything listed on the menu- no sundried tomatoes, no feta, maybe one itsy bitsy mushroom- it mostly just tasted like spinach and cream cheese. Not bad though.
Overall it was pretty good, but I’m not sure I’d go there again.
We’re going to Natty Greene’s tonight for some drinks and basketball watching!
In the meantime, I’m entertaining myself with a Wildflower and a cookie 🙂
(How’d that end up coming home with me?!?!)
