🍴 Best thing we ate: Wonderland+Sea

👋 Chelsea here. On the down side, my sister stood me up for a recent lunch date. On the up side, it gave me a good excuse to ditch our usual plans and try out Wonderland+Sea for the first time instead.

Dig in: The funky signs at this Uptown spot grabbed my attention just about as soon as it opened.

  • The menu setup is pretty simple. You pick your protein (fish, chicken or chickpea tenders) and you pick your preparation (plate, salad or sandwich).

What I ordered: I put in an order for a spicy chicken thigh sandwich ($9) with a side of kale salad ($4).

  • The sandwich was incredibly tender, and piled high with a just barely sweet coleslaw.
  • It does make for a messy lunch, and I confess to using a knife and fork for the last few bites.
