Another plus to my new location is the fact that my father works about four blocks away. Deduction: fun lunch at a local spot with Dad, and he pays. It's a win, win!
So, I present to you, The Local Munch, a series where I'll be reviewing some of the local spots I discover. There are so many small places around my fair city, and I'm excited to find different spots to try. Come along!
Last week Dad told me he wanted to go to "the deli." There are lots of deli's Downtown, but he was speaking of The Green's on Boulder.
The outside was nothing fancy, so I'll admit I was a tad skeptical as we walked in. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the happiest little deli!
The decor was incredibly colorful and fun, with one wall painted completely pink and accented with pictures of the owners' grandchildren.
Dad and I both ordered The Boulder Basket: your choice of half a sandwich, two sides and a pickle for $5.95. I chose the egg salad on wheat. Dad picked chicken salad, and we both decided to try the hamburger vegetable stew, which was a daily special.
The owners are very flexible, and let us each pick a dessert as our second side. Dad picked a huge brownie, and I chose the chocolate chess pie.
Everything was superbly delicious. I love egg salad, and am rather picky about how I like it. This was perfectly chopped and seasoned. Dad said his chicken salad was also very delicious. The hamburger stew was very hearty and perfect for a windy day.
As good as the lunch was, the clear winner was the chess pie. I'd heard of it before, but had never had an opportunity to try it. It was so deliciously rich and thick, it was hard for my fork to cut through the chocolatiness. I took one bite and promptly told Dad he really didn't want to try it. I wanted it all to myself!
It was such a fun, enjoyable lunch. We will definitely be going back to try more of the daily specials. From the adorable couple who owns The Green's, to the vibrant decorations, to the delicious, homemade food, this was definitely a hit.
