VV Recap: Restaurant Meals


Josh and I try to eat at home most of the time.  I'd say on average, we eat out once or twice on the weekends.  Sometimes, though, we like to sit down and have someone else bring us food, and in those instances, I try to make fresh food choices.  Sometimes are better than others, but I have been getting some tasty meals lately.


I'm still obsessed with our new Whole Foods' salad bar.  Apparently, I am not good at portion control, either.  They have so much great stuff there, that it's hard not to eat everything.


Prime example is their vegan sushi.  I want to get some every time I walk into the store.  It's really good.



I had a tasty lunch at Forbidden Garden comprised of steamed veggies and delightfully crispy tofu triangles.



It's strawberry season in Arkansas, which I have proclaimed here about 100 times, and that means it's strawberry salad season at Izzy's.



Josh and I had a date night recently at one of our favorite restaurants, Layla's.  I hadn't been in awhile, and I always happy when I go.



We went to pick up our marriage license back in the beginning of May, and it just so happened that the county clerk's office was right down the block from Three Fold.  We headed there after to get buns for lunch.  The sandwiches are unlike anything you can get anywhere else around.  So. good.  They had a big vegetarian 8 course dinner the night of our wedding, which I was very sad to miss.



While out on a job site visit awhile back, my coworker and I stopped off for lunch at Marketplace Grill.  I'm not usually over impressed by this restaurant, and this time wasn't much different.  The chips and salsa were really tasty, but this veggie stir fry was only so-so.  Really, it's supposed to be a chicken dish, which I had them leave out.  I think if they hadn't used so much sauce, it would have been pretty good.


Lastly, Josh and I were looking for something good to eat when running errands in North Little Rock, and we remembered that a new Bar Louie opened in the back of our mall.  We eat at the one in Little Rock every now and then, so we gave this one a try.  I branched out from my usual veggie wrap and went for the Monoco Salad with Portabello, and I was happily surprised with the bright pile of veggies and apples.  I got a side of broccoli just because, well, broccoli is awesome.

Those were the tasty eats I've had lately!  Stay tuned for Friday, where I'll let you know about a new dish at Three Fold, which is only available on Saturdays!

What have you been eating lately?  What restaurants do you typically frequent?  Leave me a message!

  1. Those meals look amazing. I don't live in Little Rock, but I will have to recreate some of those meals at home. I find it challenging eating salads when I am out. I think to myself that since salads don't involve cooking, and since I make salads for myself all the time and that when I eat out, I should pick something that I normally don't cook for myself. Dangerous way of thinking. ;-) I have been known to bring take-away menus back home with me so I can recreate some of the yummy sounding salads on them.

  2. That hummus from Layla's looks perfect, like it was food-styled for a magazine shot! I need to eat there. And still need to try Three Fold. Love Izzy's. Love WF salad bar. Especially YOUR Whole Foods because it feels more special because it's not mine. :-) Also, bc your WF sells that Kite Hill cream cheese!

    1. Three fold should definitely be on your next trip to do list. OMG so delicious. We have eaten there a lot lately. I love Layla's, too. I guess I need to come check out your Whole Foods! :)
