As for lunch, I started off with a non-alcoholic cranberry mixed drink, which was nicely tart and quite refreshing. For my meal, I opted for their chicken salad with pico gallo. First off, I have to say that I love that the bread was toasted. Also, they were nice to let me switch out the housemade potato chips that normally comes with their sandwich with a salad.
When I finally took a bite of my sandwich, I was just over the moon over that chicken salad. The addition of the pico de gallo was absolutely wonderful. I really enjoyed the fresh juicy bite of the tomatoes and the small bits of cilantro added a nice flavor dimension. The chicken was tender and moist and considering that it was white meat, that's a pretty good accomplishment.
Having worked in the produce industry for 11 years, I also really appreciate it when the greens in my salad look and taste fresh and thank goodness there wasn't a heavy hand with the dressing in the kitchen. Limp leaves are just a waste of dressing and not appealing at all.
Overall, it was a good lunch. The service was spot on. Our food arrived promptly and our water glasses were always filled. What more can you ask for? I definitely look forward to checking out more of their menu at another time, perhaps dinner one night.
