Last weeks adventure was Dads pick and we went to The Farmhouse in the City Market area. It is on the corner at 3rd and Delaware, just a few blocks away from City Market.
It’s in cool old building (which we both love to look at the details in these old buildings) but we opted to sit outside on the patio because it was such a beautiful day! We had a nice and shady spot on the patio and a great view of the street car as it passed by.
They have a great menu with plenty of choices, but not too many. Sometimes places overwhelm you with choices (I’m looking at you, Cheesecake Factory!) and it makes it so hard to decide what to get!
As we are to do lately, we started with an appetizer. We went with the Bruschetta. Instead of being what I normally think of when I think of Bruschetta, it was a great twist. It was brie cheese, caramelized apples, arugula and a red wine sorghum reduction on toasted brioche bread. It was DELICIOUS.
For our meals I chose the Turkey Club. Along with the regular items a club normally has on it, it had bacon cream cheese and a fried egg, both interesting and great additions. It also featured more of the dark turkey meat than you normally see on a club. It came with fries also.
Dad went with something completely different and that he had never even heard of. He chose the Crispy Pork Confit sandwich. It too came with fries.
Both meals were pretty darn tasty. The fries were GREAT. They were served with a side of house made ketchup that was a bit spicy but good. My sandwich was pretty good although the darker meat was a little overwhelming for me as i’m not usually a huge fan of it. There were also home made pickles on the side which were a nice treat. Dads sandwich was tasty too. It was an interesting mixture of flavors. The roasted garlic mustard was a bit overwhelming after eating part of the sandwich. We ended up trading second halves of our sandwiches (as we do sometimes to get to try a bit of each others) although I was full by the time I got to the second half of his.
Overall it was a great meal with decent service and I know we would both go back to try more menu items.
