There is something satisfying about a restaurant like E.A.T Marketplace in Old Town Temecula. It’s all about quality not quantity. No super-sized meals. No questionable meat. Food that was grown by farmers dedicated to the old age profession of farming. Eggs laid by hens with nicknames like “Henrietta” and “Chickita.” If they run out of pork, they run out of pork. Try again tomorrow.
Take the Pig & Chicken BBQ Sandwich, for example. Organic chicken, bacon, soft and rich avocados, fontina cheese, and BBQ sauce all on a baked-that-day ciabatta bread. I might have inhaled this sandwich. An exquisite, smoky sandwich that left you begging for more. No sharing. No caring. It’s a “get your own” kind of sandwich.
The E.A.T burger. Simple, classic American comfort food that’s served with a homemade pickle and crispy yucca chip. It was juicy and cooked well, but lacked the complex, heavenly flavors of an amazing burger. A good, but sadly, not an out-of-this-world burger bite.
It’s ok to drop the F-Bomb at this modern, industrial restaurant. In fact, they like it. Say it at the coffee and juice bar, and you’ll get a lean mean chocolately, cherry coffee drink. If you’re not into java, there are also PG-13 juice and smoothie options for your daily Vitamin needs.
Somehow eating at E.A.T is fitting for an area that remembers the Wild Wild West despite the surrounding new home communities. The restaurant even offers Eat at Home services with daily meals for your lazy cooking days and a summer kids camp.
And yes, my dear readers, organic food does taste different. Maybe it’s knowing that everything is made from scratch and hard, hard work was put into your meal. Or maybe it was tasting food like your great-grandma used to make before she washed the clothes in river. Eating at E.A.T. is quite the experience nonetheless. Delicious, rustic meals remembering the days of when…
