Kitchenette report...happy, happy, happy

I took the T line over to Illinois by 3rd & 20th today to check out Kitchenette. Its a catering company that has just started serving take away food at lunch from 11:30-1:30 or however long the food lasts. Its a very limited menu.

Its in an industrial building, they just roll up door on the loading dock and put benches in their parking space. There are no tables. I got there at 11:45, there were only a couple of people there.

Today, I had the lemongrass bavette steak salad and maple bacon snickerdoodles. The drink of the day was a blend of citrus juices and look pretty good. The portabello banh mi I saw looked nice but I didn't one.

The salad was a-maz-ing!

The first thing I noticed was the wonderful smell. The steak was sliced thin and just barely medium-rare - truly excellent. The greens were fresh, tasty, perfectly dressed with lots of crunchies - there were fresh peas, cilantro, fried garlic, cabbage, thin slices of marinated carrots and other yummy treats. I can't even think the last time I had a healthy salad that made me this happy.

The cookie was pretty intense - I definitely can't eat more than one...although I fully expect to have another one with milk as my 4pm snack. And maybe I'll let my husband have the one I bought for him.
