I hope you all enjoyed the pesto story-like post yesterday. I thought it was kind of fun and different. But onto today's post!
Yesterday, my mom and I went out to do our Christmas exchanging/returning/gift card using. While we were out, we discovered that our appetites were ravenous! So, while in downtown Fort Collins, we stopped at a new place called Ingredient in order to satisfy those appetites.
The atmosphere was very comfortable and boy was it crowded! Still we got our food fairly quickly. They serve soups, salads, sandwiches, and pizzas (and they have a "build your own pie" option that allows pesto for the sauce, and they have a big list of toppings that includes a lot of veggies!). I settled on the falafel sandwich, and my side of choice was grilled and chilled vegetables:
The sandwich consisted of pita bread topped with falafel patties, shredded lettuce, diced tomato and onion, and tzatziki sauce. The vegetables consisted of, well, vegetables.
Here I am ready to dig in:
My only complaint is that the grilled onions were really spicy! So spicy in fact, that I wasn't able to eat them. Also, I would have loved it if the sandwich had come with some hummus. But, I would love EVERYTHING to come with hummus. ;) All in all, my lunch was delicious! My mom ordered the caprese panini with red chile chips:
She really like hers as well! Although she said the chips were very spicy (maybe they need to tone down their food a bit).
Now, since it was a new place, we just had to try some dessert. My mom ordered a lemon bar, and I got this mini lemon cheesecake:
And I mean mini. That little guy was like an inch across! Isn't it adorable? And it was mighty tasty too!
Our lunch experience at Ingredient was definitely a positive one, and we will definitely return! We'll just have to make sure that nothing we order should be at all spicy.
The daily question: What's your favorite place to eat out?
My favorite is a little Indian place, also in downtown Fort Collins, called Taj Mahal. They have the most amazing saag and naan bread. Just thinking about it makes me hungry!
