How Much Chow Could a Chow Hound Down if a Chow Hound Could Down Chow?

Food Dog Man | Dec 8, 200303:59 PM

Sunday early dinner at Chow (Church/Market/16th). Glad to see everything is still organic and tastes fresh. Where else can you get fresh squeezed apple juice?

We sat on the back patio, which was perfectly comfortable and that is saying something, since my wife is subject to feeling cold and it was about 52 degrees on the street.

We split the spinach salad with walnuts, apples and feta. The walnuts were coated in a deliciously spicy powder. Boy, that salad leaves your mouth feeling great.

Food Dog Girl had the chicken wings with fries (hey, we're in there trying, folks -- chicken wings are a definite improvement on chicken nuggets). Food Dog Woman had the Sunday sandwich (meatball with arugula) and reported satiety and satisfaction. I tried something new, the wonton soup, and while satisfied with the ingredients (shiitake mushrooms, ribboned carrots, shrimp, tofu, wonton, ham), I found the broth only average. I mean, it tasted like wonton soup, OK? However on the friendly waiter's recommendation I added a half-tablespoonful of garlic paste, which kicked things into Tasty Land.

The bill came to $46.53, which is a bit more than I remember spending in the past, but upon examining it I found that FDGirl had somehow snuck in two malted milks when I wasn't paying attention.

Still very highly recommended.
