Yesterday I met my friend Meghan for lunch at a new-to-me restaurant called Unforked. This restaurant is particularly special to me because it is owned by Sheridan’s, a frozen custard chain in Kansas City.
Sheridan’s will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my first employer. I spent many of my teenage nights creating delicious treats. I wish I had a picture of my uniform, because I looked super cool.
Working at Sheridan’s was hands down the best job I have ever had. The customers were excited to be getting ice cream and were always so polite and nice to me. This was worlds different from my next job – retail pharmacy. Not many people were excited to be getting medication, and those that were shouldn’t have been. Reason #592 that I currently work in research.
Back to lunch – it was great! I was pleasantly surprised that Unforked supports local farmers and serves organic food. Look at this sign - any business that can fit frozen custard, hand cut fries, local farms, and recycling on one sign is the type of business I love to support!
The menu was short and sweet, but it still took me a while before I decided on trying out two different tacos.
The food was amazing! So flavorful and fresh. Another plus – Unforked lists their nutrition stats online, which is a rarity for a non-chain restaurant.
If you live in Kansas City you need to check this place out. If you don’t, I am really sorry. Come for a visit.
Breakfast was some delicious overnight oats.
I snacked on a pear before lunch and carrots after lunch. Dinner was a $1 hot dog (9) and some peanuts (4) at buck night at the Royals game. I didn’t take a pic of the food because I had more interesting subjects. <3
Good things I didn’t take a picture of the scoreboard. I haven’t been to a winning Royals game this season. I am officially bad luck.
I am very happy to report a trauma free 3 mile run while watching Glee. Nothing spectacular, but I am back in the game!
