Ladies Lunch at Ibiza

I'm not sure how I have missed out on trying Ibiza for so long now but a recent ladies lunch has remedied that situation. With a bottle of Spanish Rioja rosado, we tried out some of the new summer menu items along with some classic favorites. Starting at the top right, the southern style Spanish gazpacho was cool and refreshing. On the middle row, the creamy Burrata salad was delicious as was the ceviche with avocado. The la plancha style Portuguese octopus with green zhug and Spanish chorizo was both savory and filling. We finished with the watermelon salad with feta cheese, red onion, parsley and black olive; a classic Mediterranean flavor combo that paired nicely with the wine. This was my first trip to Ibiza but it won't be the last. Our service was excellent, the food was delicious and the prices were reasonable; Ibiza is a recommended Houston lunch destination!

Lunch at Sandy McGee's

When I find myself in Richmond, Texas, I look forward to eating at Sandy McGee's . I particularly like to enjoy lunch at this restaurant located in the historic district; it has made my jury duty so much more bearable on so many occasions. My favorite lunch to order is the City Secretary combo which includes your choice of a half sandwich, small salad and a cup of soup. I almost always get the chicken salad sandwich, the broccoli cheese soup and the fruit salad, it's homestyle fresh and so good! My husband and I do come here occasionally for a casual dinner as well. We like to take advantage of their BYOB policy and bring along a bottle of wine. This is a recommended Richmond restaurant.
