The Dish on the Café’s Spring Menu

by User Not Found | May 11, 2012
A few weeks ago, the café rolled out its new spring menu, which includes some improved classics as well as seasonally fresh options. I gladly welcomed the opportunity to taste test, photograph and spill the beans for you all.  With so many options to choose from, I decided on a salad, two cold sandwiches and a Mexicana selection.  We’ll start with my favorite:

EnSalada Verano, served with a soft wheat roll (top image)

A fresh and filling gazpacho salad with chopped roma tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, red onion and cilantro in a spicy lime vinaigrette.  This colorful vegetarian indulgence won’t let you down – it tastes as good as it looks!  

The gazpacho was macho and I didn’t have enough room left over for dessert.

Tostadas Adobo

Two open-faced corn tostadas, shredded romaine, pico de gallo, queso fresco, chopped cilantro and your choice of chicken or pork served with house-made smoked salsa verde (spicy), roasted tomato jalepeño and garlic salsa (mild).  This dish is proudly recommended by the salsa makers themselves.  Layla insured me “the salsa verde has an authentic Mexican taste!”

California BLT & A, served with chips and a pickle

It’s not the least bit surprising that the California BLT & A is the most popular new addition to the Museum Café spring menu.  Extra crispy peppered bacon, green leaf lettuce, sliced tomatoes and avocado with a cilantro lime mayonnaise on toasted wheat bread will leave you in a golden state of mind.  Just cruise on down the coast (of the canal) and grab a seat on the sunny café patio!

Serape Verde, served with potato chips and a pickle

Smoked chicken salad with carrots, celery, white onions and tomatoes pair up with avocado, pico de gallo and garlic lime mayonnaise.  It’s the perfect hearty but light combination.  

And that’s a wrap!

The café has a great menu.  My all time favorite is the Texas Smoked BBQ Pork sandwich!!  Come on by, see what’s new and let us know what you think!

    I believe the offciial name for this salsa should be Laura's Dead Dog Salsa . Or Barnaby Jones Memorial Salsa . Or maybe Hey you vultures get off my dead dog salsa, but the last one is too long to fit on a jar label or recipe card. Plus how would you file it alphabetically? Under H ?
