Power Lunch at ENCORE

Flo and I had an exceptional lunch at ENCORE, part of the Hotel Allegro.  Our salads tasted fresh, hearty, clean, and were made of higher-quality ingredients.  The tab is a bit higher than other Loop Lunch hot spots, but once in a while, it is well worth it.  I ordered the Roasted Turkey Salad, which had a huge portion of hand-carved turkey.  (It actually lasted me for two more micro-meals.)  I don't always get to have a traditional turkey meal come Thanksgiving, so I get really excited when I'm able to get the real deal.  Flo had the Grilled Tuna Mediterranean Spinach Salad, with huge chunks of seared tuna.  I forked a piece and thoroughly enjoyed it.  How can you ever go back to canned tuna when you can eat the real mccoy?
Our bill came with two wrapped chocolate chip cookies.  I went back to work happier and enjoyed my treat with my afternoon decaf.
