Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I have lived in Huntsville, Alabama area for almost 12 years. I find it even harder to believe that my family and I have not taken advantage of all that Huntsville has to offer. I have always stayed out in my little neck of the woods until last summer when I got a job in city. Haha! Huntsville is not really a big city, but its bigger than little ole New Market.
My new job not only brought me many new friends, but a chance to see the downtown area and all that it has to offer. I have loved getting to see and be a part of downtown. Many of the things on my #kellybeas100things list have to do with downtown Huntsville. It's my year to really dive in to what the area has to offer.
Commerce Kitchen is one of those things! I have heard my friends talk and talk about how amazing the food is. Today was my day to know first hand how fantastic it is. I met up with Melissa, Jennifer, Megan, Kim, Trish, John and sweet little Issac for lunch.
Melissa and I were the first ones to get there and she was going on and on about a goat cheese salad. As the rest of my friends showed up I begun to hear about the shrimp and grits, steak and eggs and on and on. My mouth was watering and I couldn't wait to order.
I went for something totally different and got the Fried Green Tomato BLT with a side salad. Here's the thing I am not a fan of red, ripe tomato's on any kind of sandwich, but I love fried green tomato's so I just went for it. That sandwich was absolutely marvelous! The bacon was perfect, the fried green tomato's added a pop and the smoked aioli give it that extra pizazz. I ate every bit of it and would go back there right now and get another if I could!
Oh and I can't forget to tell you about my Honey Thyme Palmer. It was yummy! Definitely the perfect tea to go with my lunch. I love how they give you the sweet syrup in a tiny little pitcher so you can add it to you liking.
Perfect lunch! That is all I can say. Can't wait to go back again! I give it 5 stars all around!
