It’s Friday and we’re soooo ready for the 3 day weekend! It’s been quite a busy workweek here at InMotion, so a little R&R is much needed! I’m sure most of us are getting ready for the beginning of the grilling season as well, so we opted for a healthy lunch today to make up for the overabundance of food to come!
Today’s pick, Tender Greens, is a long-time favorite of ours, which we haven’t had since we were at the last office. This place offers delicious, fresh and healthy dishes. They specialize in organic produce from Scarborough Farms in Oxnard and other small local farms. Their beef comes from grain-fed hormone/antibiotic-free cows, their chickens are raised on the range in Northern California, not in cages, and their tuna is line-caught from the Pacific.
Now, that’s some health-conscious southern California talk for ya!
Not surprisingly, the office gave Tender Greens a 4 star rating! Who said eating healthy can’t taste great!
One note though, this time around I tried something slightly new on the their menu, which was the option of having a full-sized simple salad with Garlic Herb Crostini. I got this with their Backyard Marinated Steak and a side of the Roasted Roma Tomato Bread Soup. I honestly was a bit mislead on them mentioning the Garlic Herb Crostini in the description (which most salads come with, but no other salad mentions it). I thought they’d give more than just the 1 usual slice that it came with. So all I was left with was a big pile of lettuce, which was a disappointment. However, the steak and soup were excellent as usual! Therefore, next time I’ll just opt for their regular Backyard Steak Big Salad, which comes with a bit more fixin’s and flavor.
Anyway, moral of the story, sometimes it’s better to stick with what you know is good at a restaurant!
