As we were planning on stopping at (the closing-this-week) Chatsworth Nursery Topanga location to buy plants for our new North Terrace, we first went past that location to The Country Deli for lunch.
Foodie Philip had the marinated skirt steak with eggs and home fries, while Greg had the Pastrami on Rye with fries, although half the sandwich was retained for dinner.
Lunch cost an average of $21.52 per serve with tax and tip.
After such generous serves at lunch we felt something simpler and lighter would be good for dinner. Foodie Greg put together a simple salad of butter lettuce, pickled beets and shaved parmesan cheese, which was pretty good.
The remaining half pastrami sandwich was quartered and served as the protein, with the cost included in lunch.
- Lettuce adds 25c per serve
- Beets in vinaigrette were $1.69 and we used 1/3, or 28c per serve
- Shaved parmesan comes in a $5.49 pack, and we used 1/4 or 46c per serve.
Dinner added another 99c per serve to the day’s food bill, and was an appropriate meal for the day.
