Eat This Now – Chopped Salad at MUNDO

[imagebrowser id=975]

Perhaps veal ain’t your thang. Or makes you squeamish. Or you’re looking for a nice, tasty, light lunch downtown. Then you could do a lot worse than with Robe Solano’s chopped mélange (ELV loves him his mélanges) of lettuce, veggies, fruits and nuts…all dressed to a fare thee well with a slightly spicy dressing at Mundo.

As far as we can tell, no animals died or suffered for your enjoyment of this super salad.

Best of all, it only costs $8.

Eat This Now – Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad at SAGE

[imagebrowser id=908]

Everyone who knows ELV knows he hates beets.

Because they taste like dirt.

Unless they’re pickled.

In which case they taste like pickled dirt.

Another reason we hate beets is because they’re actually quite pretty and look like they might actually taste a lot better than they do.

So beets both lie to you and taste nasty…in other words, they’re a double whammy of awfulness. Sort of the American Idol and Jersey Shore of edible eats.

But chefs love beets.

And they really love beets this time of year.

They love them because they are cheap and plentiful.

And they’re cheap and plentiful because they taste like dirt.

But you know what? Being a critic and all, we feel a certain moral obligation to constantly try whatever hideous beet concoction chefs are throwing at us. As a result, we order beets all the time. Even though we hate them.

And it was by following this moral obligation that we encountered Shawn McClain’s very beet-y but beauteous salad at SAGE some time ago.

And we actually like it.

Sort of.
