Eat, Food, Weekend

Lunch at
Encuentro

Had lunch at this fabulous little hip place with my girlfriends from work last week and I promised myself to take Ky here. So here we are! Ky is by no means a vegan fan so I kept it secretive. “I’m taking you to lunch, I’ll drive” did the trick. Luckily, he didn’t tuck and roll.

When we arrived, I took the initiative to order before he could realize there’s no meat on the menu. I got us the farro salad, the quesadilla, and the black bean burger. We sat down, I grabbed a mango-oj sparkler and he got his usual, a cold glass of beer. The food came out pretty quickly and they looked so fresh and colorful. I asked him after a few bites what he thought and he said “wow, the food doesn’t make you miss meat”. In other words, he approved.
