Today for lunch I went with friends to Almond Wood BBQ.
The last time I ate at this restaurant it was know as Apricot Wood BBQ, and was much smaller. Since that time they have expanded into an adjacent space that had been an Italian restaurant.
The menu is now much larger and includes Italian dishes. I decided to try the lasagne.
The lasagne was really good, especial since it included a layer of pulled pork. Definitely a nice fusion of Italian and BBQ.
The portions were very generous and all of us took home a box of leftovers. This will be my lunch tomorrow.
Of course, I also had to add the remaining sauce to the leftover box, but needed a spoon to make sure I could save it all.
This was my first meal in a restaurant since last February. The food was good, but even better was the company and conversation.
