Brunch at Bar Louie
Josh and I spent Saturday camping at Woolley Hollow State Park, which I will recap for you tonight, but if you want a sneak peak, check out these pictures. We got back in town Sunday and were pretty starving, so after showering, we headed to brunch at Bar Louie.
I love their food, but there atmosphere leaves something to be desired. It's usually over run with macho men, too loud televisions and lackluster wait staff. Sunday was no exception. Josh and I stood around the hostess podium for 10 minutes before we gave up and went to find a seat. Then, we sat another 15 minutes before I could flag down the one waitress on the floor. Service has never been Bar Louie's strong point. Our waitress was very nice, though, and the rest of the meal went smoothly.
We were quite hungry, so we started off with the hummus plate. I always specify that the taziki (and sometimes feta) needs to be on the side. This dish has come out several different ways in the past, and today was no different. Sometimes there is tabbouleh, but this time it was olive tepenade. It was very good, though.
The pita bread was a little hard, but I focused my efforts on the cucumbers instead. I ordered what I almost always do, a veggie wrap with no queso fresco or mayo. I ordered broccoli, but it came out with a huge pile of fries. I didn't complain though, because their fries are yummy. I just asked for my broccoli, too.
The wrap has hummus, roasted veggies, balsamic, avocado and lots of spinach. It was SUPER filling, though, so I saved about half my plate for dinner.
I cooked up leftovers later that night before we watched Pacific Rim (oh my gawd, monsters.) It was just as good warmed up. I had it with a side salad.
Stay tuned for a car camping, food eating recap of Saturday and some home cooked meals this week! My pain level is much lower and I'm feeling good about the week!
