Chow Ciao

September 6, 2011

in lunch, restaurant, salads, sandwich

Our flight back to Los Angeles wasn’t until 3:50pm, so we stopped to eat in Bend first

Chow is a restaurant specializing in sustainable food…

…talk about local – there’s the garden!

Inside things were quiet

We sat where the action was -

I wanted one of everything off the menu!

Decided to share the Warm Multi Grain Salad with Abe…

…featuring black beans, olive oil, garlic, spinach + squeeze o’ lemon

Also split the Happy Vegetable – Roasted Pickled Veggies, Savory House Made Cheese, + Olive Relish on Lavoy Brioche

Sweet potato fries on the side – they were simultaneously crisp and mushy

Cousin Rachel (the new bride) gave me a bite of her polenta – thick, like a pancake

Chow makes incredibly good chow!

Our waitress was a total pro – navigating our table of 12 in the middle of a brunch rush. We made it to the airport with plenty of time, though RDM isn’t exactly as rushed as LAX:

By the time we got back, it was almost 9:30pm. Dinner was a giant Pink Lady in the car

All of us bathed (Julius included) and collapsed into bed. It’s good to be home!

Welcome home!
Will be sending some recipes for you and the nicknamed “HM” (hand model) – all pretty much vegan or vegitarian.
Have a good rest and fab Tuesday.

What a fun trip. I love Oregon. Only been once but my gut tells me I should live there at some point in my life. BTW, I made the chickpea tomato soup you wrote about a little while back and it is amazing. So easy and so yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
