Kicking off my birthday weekend… at the Playground DTSA

The lunch menu for March 23, 2012

Today is Friday, and I was going to have lunch at a fast food place (probably McDonalds), when I changed my mind and went to the Playground instead.  First, the food at the Playground is much healthier than a fast food place.  Second, I deserve a nice lunch… especially since its the weekend before my birthday.

As I mentioned in my prior visit to Playground,  Jason excels with seafood and pork.  I started off my lunch by spoiling myself with his Garlic Butter Mussels.  Absolutely delicious.  It came with 2 pieces of bread to sop up the broth.  Heavenly!

For my entree, I was torn between ordering the trout or the pork.  Since I already had the mussels, I opted for the Prime Pork Flat Iron with the potato salad.  The pork was perfectly cooked… moist and tender.  The potatoes had a kick to it, which I wasn’t fond of.  Lucky I was already full from the mussels, so I didn’t feel bad about tossing most of the potatoes away.

Another delicious meal at the Playground DTSA.. and a great way to kick start my birthday weekend.
