Boise’s Lemon Tree Co is Open! Everyone who’s anyone that either frequented downtown Boise or ventured downtown from time to time for lunch at any one of the amazing spots there, has probably heard of the Bleubird? You know, that hot lunch spot on the corner of 10th and Bannock Street that always seemed to have winding lines down the sidewalk? Well, the Bleubird is gone, but all hope is not lost! In it’s place is an all new sandwich spot that’ll have you forgetting about the Bleubird after the first bite of one their special and unique artisan sandwiches!
Lemon Tree Co Artisan Sandwiches
If you get a moment to check out the Lemon Tree Co online menu, one of the first things that will strike you (well, it struck me anyways), was the unique and interesting ways various ingredients were mixed and used in literally all of the sandwiches? I’m not going to spoil it for you, so head here to check out the menu, but I will say, some of the items are a bit odd at first glance, but no doubt delicious!
The nice thing to note is that they pay special attention to VEGETARIANS and VEGANS here so there’s something on the menu for everyone!
On my first visit to the Lemon Tree Co, the one sandwich that caught my attention almost immediately was THE PERUVIAN.
Maybe its the Carnivore in me, but just looking at what the PERUVIAN was made up of, had me wagging my tongue.
The bacon and sausage had me from the get-go, and the Monterrey Jack, melted over top that was the icing on top! Not going to lie, the Fritos gave me pause initially, as I’m not one to usually put chips in my sandwich (although I know many who do, so I know this is not uncommon). But you have to try everything as is, once, right?
All, I’ll say is that I’m glad I tried it because the PERUVIAN has instantly become one of my favorite sandwiches in Boise. I may even go grab another as soon as I’m done here?!
Lemon Tree Co
A good lunch spot (like a breakfast joint) is tough to find at times. And even though downtown Boise has a number of notable and delicious destinations to grab lunch at, mark my words, the Lemon Tree Co will make its mark, and sooner rather than later.
I encourage and highly recommend you make your way there, and soon, before word gets out and they long lines of their own snaking down Bannock!
Dangerously Delicious Pies. Back in our nation’s capital for the week for ‘work’ (and by WORK I mean my DAY JOB) and made sure to make an effort to work my way down to one of Washington D.C.’s most prestigious pie shops – Dangerously Delicious Pies. Oh, they had great pies (I picked up a blackberry while I was there), but there was even more going with Dangerously Delicious Pies than I realized!
First off, I love the ambiance of Dangerously Delicious Pies. Its got a great and unique look inside the pie shop, and one that really set it apart from other shops I have visited.
There was ‘some’ seating that I saw, but not much, which gave me the impression that most just pies ordered for pickup. The staff were ultra friendly, and were genuinely eager, to listen to my personal story and path taken toward opening my own catering service back home.
As you can probably tell, I really REALLY liked the Dangerously Delicious Pie packaging. The branding was top tier!
Many probably don’t pay much attention to the box you pick a pie up in, and that’s understandable. For me, however, I love great design and especially uniquely branded packaging, like the box my blackberry pie came in from Dangerously Delicious Pies.
It was a heavy cardboard carton with a comprehensive list of my fruit and savory pies around the edge of the packaging. The website address was emblazoned on one edge as well. And on the lid, an all black, branded Dangerously Delicious Pie logo design. I loved it! Yea, I’m weird like that!
Despite there being a rather lengthy list of pies, typically sold by Dangerously Delicious Pies, there was probably only about half of those ready to go in the shop.
I had a hard time deciding between the Caramel Apple Crumble, Mixed Berry, Blueberry and Blackberry pies on-hand, but ultimately chose the Blackberry.
Crust was both plentiful (pretty thick and tender) and tasty, and the blackberry filling was deep!
Not sure when I’ll be able to make my way back to Washington D.C., so I made sure to make the most of my opportunity, and visit Dangerously Delicious Pies.
What’s the message here? Never take any day (or any THING) for granted. If you’re ever on a trip (personal or business), always live every day like it the last. Take advantage of your opportunities as you never know when you’ll get another.
