I have been getting pretty excited the last couple of months waiting for my good friend, The Chubby Cook to open. It is official, he is open for carry-out lunches and doing catering around town. Almost 60% of his menu is vegetarian (some even vegan), so as you might guess I am thrilled.
I have tried his carry-out salads the last 2 days and they have been delicious (pictures below). The salad dressings have been delicious and healthy with barely any oil. If the Chubby Cook eats these every day, he may not be chubby for long. My favorite so far? The Green Dragon. Basically it is your chinese chicken salad without the chicken. The ginger dressing was delicious, it will remind you of the dressing from Japanese restaurants, but the salad will actually be as good as the dressing.
What is the catch? The menu is changing every day. Sign up on the Chub’s FaceBook Page and you will see him posting up the special each day (so far one sandwich and one lunch). You may want to get there early or call in and reserve one if you are traveling. I tried the hummus cup on the right and it is delicious, the carrots and celery are a refreshing change from bread and chips. Will it be there today? Who knows, but I am hoping the slaw is because I rarely like slaw, but when it is good I get very excited…
Amy brought a brownie home for the kids and they loved it (mid cleanse I am not indulging, but the cheese cake was very tempting). What should you get excited about? Chub’s Raw Chocolate Bars. I was more than suspicious when I first tasted one a little over a year ago. They are surprisingly rich and the consistency is thick and fudge like. You can tell yourself you are eating raw food and that is healthy .
Check out the salads below and if you have the chance swing by his spot and grab lunch to go.
