butternut was recommended to me more than once when folks heard i was looking for new places to eat. i figured it was a good option for a lazy saturday lunch – since it’s not too far from our house.
it’s a cute little restaurant located on a soi on the outside of the east side of the moat. (just like having a map, i know.)
i went with the mediterranean plate – hummus, falafel, two kinds of tahini, and a tomato salad served along with some soft pita bread. all the flavors were fresh and bright. i’d definitely go back just for this.
sam had the grilled cheese. it was a panini with cheese, bacon, and tomato salsa. it was as good as it sounds.
we’d also ordered an appetizer. it came out last, but that’s not uncommon here. potato croquette. fried balls of mashed potatoes? nothing wrong with that.
