Last week I had the pleasure of being Served by Stadium. They’re a new take out service that allows you to select menu items from multiple locations. So yes, you can have sushi and chicken wings for lunch now. The kicker though, is that they only have a limited menu but as the company expands, I suspect that their menu will expand as well. The great part is that they have a pretty good variety of items already that will keep you full and intrigued. There’s nothing like a Mix and Match menu for an eater like me who just can’t decide and wants it all; Served by Stadium makes that possible
The runners that greeted me were so kind and warm. They made me extremely anxious to peek into my tightly sealed served by stadium bag. I started with the Fig toast, topped with arm goat cheese, figs, and rosemary honey. To my surprise, the toast was really still warm and the cheese didn’t overpower the fresh bread it was served on. Harding’s did a great job of adding figs to balance the flavors and leave the honey, literally as a sweet finish.
I planned to save some of my toast for later as I dug into the summer roll from Rhong Tiams. The crunchy veggies in the delicate rice paper were very light in flavor but heightened with the hoisin peanut sauce that it came with. It was comforting to have as the sauce reminded me of Massaman curry.
My entree, was a dry pepper style chicken by Han Dynasty that came with white rice. The rice was necessary as this dish is spicy! The nuggets were nice and crisp and hot. I really enjoyed how juicy they were on the inside despite the dryness on the outer layer.
Still in disbelief that someone went to all these places to make my lunch amazing, I had to get onto the dessert. Bosie Tea Parlor makes this Paris-Brest, which is like puff pastry filled with praline creme that is truly delightful. The pastry itself had caramelized hazelnuts engulfed within that makes you close your eyes once you bite into it. That’s the kind of dessert I always want to enjoy.
So how about you? Do you plan to get Served by Stadium?
