Chefs on the Run is one of the restaurants I’ve been telling myself that I need to hit up for over a year. I’m not sure exactly why I hadn’t. When FGH asked if I’d like to accompany her to Knaus Berry Farm I said Yes with the only stipulation being that we hit up Chefs on the Run for lunch.
After having to wait around for FGH to pick her Strawberries we headed out. I was excited, hungry and had only a Cheese Bread Stick in my stomach holding me over. There’s only one parking space available when we arrive and it involves parallel parking, one of my kryptonite.
Chefs on the Run seats about 30 folks and has one wall covered with local art for sale, which is a nice touch. I had already scoped out the menu and was ready to order. FGH was a bit on the sick side and was all about getting a Soup. They were out of Soup so she had to settle for the Habanero Chicken and Pinchos (Skewers) I ordered “Pa Picar”.
There was no settling here as the Habanero Chicken were beyond excellent with a just right buttery Habanero Sauce (not too spicy) and a side of Lime Ranch Sauce. If I had my druthers, I’d be a Bleu Cheese Sauce but you can’t win them all. The Chicken & Churrasco Pinchos were good too but I would have preferred the BBQ Sauce on the side so that I could control how much each one had. I assumed they would be, but we know what happens when you assume.
I really wanted the Habanero Burger but two spicy dishes are not really the way to start your day. I’m glad I chose the Chef La Burger (Grilled Onions, Provolone Cheese, Hot Pastrami & Creole Mustard). It’s beautiful, it really is.
I remove the offensive lettuce & tomato and look at the marvelous crust on the bottom of the Burger, I was sold. One bite and boom, there it was, an explosion. It’s a very well constructed Burger with some equally great ingredients. The Creole Mustard really tied the Pastrami to the Burger. They nailed it.
There’s a Tripleta, a Bahn Mi, & Mofongo which give me multiple reasons to return to Chefs on the Run. Plus, I really need to try that Habanero Burger.
P.S.: FGH had Hummus, one of the few items I have banned from this blog, “thou shalt not be photographed“.
