On every street corner in NYC, there's a place to get a salad - the kind where you pick your lettuce, hand it over, make your selections and then they toss it for you. There's Hale & Hearty, Devon & Blakely and even at any bodega.
But, in Chicago, the only place I found that does that is Cosi. And, it's not really the same and there aren't enough Cosi's around anyway.
However, I lament the tossed salad no more. I have a new lunchtime love.
Today, I am grateful for ~
1/ WOW BAO
2/ especially Spicy Kung Pao chicken
3/ and Mongolian Beef buns.
Who needs a mixed salad when you've got Asian Hot Buns?!
