Another week, another weekday lunch for the BF and I! Sorry to bore you with location, but typically, I'm not willing to go too far from the Mira Mesa area for lunch since I don't feel like spending my whole hour for lunch driving all over the world. Luckily, there are tons of fresh, healthy places right nearby! This time we tried Marketplace Grille for the first time, and let me say, it won't be the last time! It was fantastic!
We started off with their amazing sounding appetizer plate of hummus, babaganoush, tabouleh and shirazi salad. It came with pita bread, which we exchanged for lavash since it was whole wheat and the pita was not. I found out I love lavash bread! It is so delicious and thin that it doesn't overly fill you up! Hummus is always amazing, as is babaganoush. I really liked the shirazi salad and the tabouleh was pretty much the same as it is everywhere else. We killed this plate of deliciousness.
Here is another shot, so you can actually see the babaganoush hiding behind everything. The BF ordered one of the combo plates which came with chicken, beef, rice, shirazi salad, roasted tomatoes and lavash bread. He was very happy with his carne, and I was very happy to steal some of his roasted tomato. This left me with a happy and full BF! I ordered the veggie wrap and what I got was MASSIVE. I didn't realize there would be feta in there (I probably would have ordered without, since most places always give me more cheese than I would like), so I ended up having to open it up and remove most of it, but everything else was magical! I put some of the leftover hummus and babaganoush from our appetizer on it and it became the most perfect wrap of all time! Needless to say, I could not finish this in one sitting... I highly recommend this place!! It is very healthy, fresh and incredibly tasty! I'm so going back as soon as possible!
