Perkins - a good lunch
We have been coming to Florida for many years but somehow never eaten at a Perkins restaurant; no particular reason; just had not.
Well, we have finally visited one for lunch and it was great and we followed it up with going for a breakfast.
We thought we were not hungry enough for a starter but then noted that they had a plate to share and that seemed to fit the bill very well.
It is called Shareable Starter and has mozzarella sticks, chicken strips, onion rings and cheese quesallada and comes with your choice of dip. We had a marinara sauce dip. All very tasty and hot. If you had wanted a starter to yourself we could have had Sweet Potato Fries, Cheese Quesallida, Onion Rings or Chicken Strips.
I also noticed people having soup served in a bread roll; how cute is that. Also you can opt to have a salad in a roll. I will be going for that next time and copying that idea at home.
We could have had a sandwich platter or burger but we had determined to have a proper hot meal and chose from a category called Timeless Favourites. The options were Butterball Turkey, Mushroom and Swiss Chicken, Top Sirloin or Top Roast.
Him indoors went for the pot roast and I had the Mushroom and Swiss Chicken. This was a breast of chicken with mushroom and swiss cheese in lemon pepper. The pot roast was just what a pot roast is when you make it at home. You can choose 2 sides from a long list and they throw in a roll. The sides were vegetable medley, broccoli, corn, spinach, baked potato, mashed potato, fries, rice or the American favourite mac' n' cheese.
How often do you see spinach on a menu?... Hardly ever and it is my favourite vegetable. We were too stuffed for a dessert but this being Perkins there is a take away bakery that enables you to buy a treat to take home. It would be rude not to do so! For our drinks we hade lemonade and iced raspberry tea and finished with a pot of bottomless coffee and a pot of bottomless tea.
They do have milk shakes but they have no fewer than 4 scoops of ice cream in them so I am sure the calorie count is through the roof. They come in strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.
If you are passing a Perkins why not check it out.
