As I mentioned in the previous post, I finally did see The Dark Knight last night. We arrived back in Davis with only about 15 minutes to spare before the movie, and this time we decided to head across the street to one of my favorite take-out spots in Davis, The Blue Shirt Café.
Specializing in vegetarian options, Blue Shirt is great because it is not your typical sandwich spot. It has lots of options, and can offer something for any ethnic food option you’re hankering for. In the mood for Asian? You can get my favorite, the Thai seared tofu (around $6) —a wheat wrap stuffed with jasmine rice, grilled tofu, mint cucumber slaw, and peanut sauce. How about Italian? Try the “Little Italy” (around $5)—a pressed, warm panini with provolone, roasted red peppers, tomato, basil, and lots of balsamic. Last night, we tried the Indonesian Squash and Spinach soup (bowl, around $4) which was creamy squash soup with a hint of curry and spices, topped with fresh baby spinach leaves. So yum! In a hurry, I’ve also stopped by and grabbed the “Blue Shirt Salad”—mixed greens, feta, slices of pear, and walnuts, with a rich tasting balsamic dressing.
Blue Shirt doesn't disappoint in the drink department, either. They have every kind of juice imaginable, from standards like orange and apple to more unusual choices like carrot or raspberry. I’ve never had the guts to try it, but perhaps an “Immunity Power” concoction – carrots, red pepper, parsley, garlic, lemon, and cucumber—will get you through the winter cold-free? It’s worth a shot. And if it’s terrible, you can always chase it with one of their award-winning smoothies --they just won a Best of Boston® award.
