Nick and I met for lunch a couple of weeks ago at the Taphouse and ordered a couple of dishes. Since we were on a lunch break we stayed away from the taps (so responsible!). While sitting on the patio getting some quality people watching in, I witnessed one of my most memorable Boise people-watching moments. Around noon a good looking, fit guy (in young twenties?) got off the bus wearing NOTHING but a thong, shoes and a messenger bag. As he strutted down the sidewalk, people tried to sneak cell phone pics of him. It was an amazing moment. As for the food, our review was split.
Thumbs down: the pulled pork sandwich. Just like Josh mentions in his article, it was soggy and fell apart.
Thumbs up: the bacon and pear bruschetta. Fun flavors paired together with nothing being too overpowering. The bread was crisp but not hard, which is always a bruschetta deal breaker for me. I’d order it again.
Jenny’s Lunch Line features a pineapple avocado soup on Fridays. The only thing I knew going into this soup is that I DIDN’T know what to expect. But it was delicious and the pumpkin seeds on top were a fun extra flavor and texture. Turns out I’m a fan of chilled soups afterall!
Last week I was treated to the chicken gouda apple salad over at Chris’ On Broadway. Now, normally this isn’t the kind of salad I would order. Most likely my ranch tooth would take over and steer me away from a dish with apple dressing… Lo and behold, I was impressed with how delicious it was!
