I had to stop by my office this morning to pick up a back up computer disk (which contained the archived Chess website) so on our way home, Mark & I stopped at Big City Diner to grab some lunch.
Big City is locally owned and operated and serves mostly diner type food, with a local edge to it (i.e. you can get a burger with kim chee, or kim chee fried rice for breakfast...) :) One of my favorite veggie meals is only served during lunchtime at Big City... the Upcountry Veggie Sandwich. :) YUM!
This is what Mark ordered - the Portebella Mushroom Sandwich - which
I've ordered in the past. Very tasty and very veggie friendly!
It comes with melted mozzarella cheese, roasted bell peppers, and carmelized onions. :)
Here's my Upcountry Veggie Sandwich - it's SOOO delicious! :)
It's like a club, but made with avacados, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cheese,
Japanese cucumbers, and this really delicious corn salsa thing... just YUMMY!!
Mark enjoying his sandwich... I was surprised he opted for the veggie choice...
But he really enjoyed it. :)
Excuse the awful picture, but here I am enjoying my sandwich as well... You
can kind of see the "diner-like" atmosphere behind me. They have checkered
floors with a real old time diner feel to it.. :)
One of the best things on their menu is their desserts! :)
We shared the old fashioned rustic apple pie ala mode...
It came with three scoops of vanilla ice cream, apple pie filling in a
puff pastry shell, with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce...
I'm not sure that the photo really does the dessert justice... It was
incredible!! :) And HUGE!!
One of the better veggie lunches we've had in a while!! :)
