I had been meaning to check out the Kendall College Dining Room’s fixed price lunch for a few years now and finally did so, last week. Their three-course meal is $18 or $22 with a glass of house wine. My friend, Mark joined me on this particular culinary excursion.
The dining room had quite the display of historic dishware, bakeware and other food preparation related things. We were seated right next to the kitchen so we had a direct, clear view of our food being prepared. There was a great window view as well.
We started off with bread and honey butter, which made me so unbelievably happy! I have a certain soft spot for honey butter! It reminded me of the butter from Honey Butter Fried Chicken.
I enjoyed delicious Metropolis coffee with the bread and butter, because, how could you not combine these things? Haha!
I started my meal off with the pea and mushroom risotto, which was simple and packed with flavor. I really like combos that include a few well-balanced ingredients so I can really taste everything clearly.
Mark got the radish salad as his starter. I ordered the pork chops as my entree and Mark ordered the salmon over lentils.
We both finished up our meal with the vanilla creme Brulee, which was really good and not too sweet.
