I admit it. I am a foodie. I like to cook. I love to eat. And I find that I am indeed limited in the choices I have to try new things. Burgers. Chicken. Barbecue. All good. All appreciated. But different? I thought I was doomed to Ground Hog Day my way through eating out. Then we stopped at the Market Place cafe for lunch. Egads. Different things. Not your ordinary burgers. Chicken fixed a different way. And I assume their barbecue is good. I had the marinated chicken breast with the Thai peanut sauce, Asian slaw and chopped peanuts on a beautifully toasted bun hinting of Parmesan and mayo. It was darn good. Cathy had the Portabella (I looked up the spelling. I found it ended with either an a or an o! Darn that English language! :)) mushroom and roasted vegie sandwich. Also, amazing. There were several things on the menu that I hadn't seen in Watertown. While the setting is indeed inside the Hy-Vee grocery story (who, I must admit, hires me to do cooking demonstrations so I have a vested interest!), the food outweighs any negative that implies. Fancy, schmancy, it ain't. Clean? Comfortable? It is. When you're looking to do lunch, give it a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. And if you're feeling just a little reckless, try the Thai chicken sandwich. You'll know you are loved!
