Lunch Report -- Museum of the American Indian

All in all - the food experience inside the museum wasn't bad, it was expensive for sure - but the cafeteria style restaurant has a wide selection of food and plenty of seating. Even though we got there 30 mins before closing, we didnt feel rushed and there was plenty of fresh food.

We had:

Cups of soup - the four of us had two each of pumkin and peanut soup. I should have tasted the pumkin soup, but my friends said it was good. I did have the peanut soup, and it was quite good. creamy, rich and spicy. It was $2.50 for a coffee cup full.

Broiled Salmon - We had a tasty piece of salmon filet for $8.95. It was large enough for two to split as a appetizer size portion, and quite good. Nicely moist with a thin slightly too sweet glaze, but it was sparringly applied so as not to over-power. For $2 more you can add on two sides.

Lobster Roll - $8.95 and decent enough to quench a hunger for shellfish. Nice large roll, with a decent size portion of what looked like a kicked-up commercial lobster salad.

Chips - non-descript multi-colored tortilla chips, on a plate for $5. This took the prize for most audaciously priced dish.

Two-color of Potatoes - This was a tasty, albeit weird side dish. There were two molded scoops of mashed potatos side by side. One white and one blue. They were nicely seasoned, and served cold. And at $2.95, may have been the bargain of the day.

Indian Pudding - not bad, tasty jumbo golden raisens in a sweetened thick pudding, almost like a bread pudding. $4.95

Next time (if there is a next time), I would want to try the buffalo burger and the juniper berry smoked salmon sandwich.
