Angela and I decided to try out a new restaurant tonight and were excited to find a little gem near our apartment. It is called Greens & Proteins and is about 12 minutes away from home.
We were drawn to the restaurant by the promise of an ostrich burger. In addition, we’ve been looking for a place where we can eat out without feeling bad about the number of calories and kind of food we’re buying. Greens & Proteins definitely meets those criteria.
We both got the same thing – an ostrich burger on a whole wheat bun with avocado and jicama “fries.” We only had to wait for about 10 minutes before our burgers were grilled up and served to us:
Man was that thing delicious. I can say, without a doubt, that is in my top five burgers I’ve ever had in my life. The meat wasn’t fatty, but was still full of flavor and I felt like the patty was dense but not heavy or gamy. It was well worth the money.
The jicama “fries” were definitely interesting. They were raw and there was nothing fry-like about them other then their shape. I think they had the texture of apples without any of the sweetness. Angela really liked them and I thought they were all right.
There are other options on the menu that both Angela and I are really intrigued by, including a spaghetti squash chicken parmigiana and a variety of healthy pizzas. I think we’ll definitely be going back.
