Thai Cobb from Bar Louie Review

First off… I love the pun.  I didn’t even notice it until I was ordering it and said out loud.  Puns are one of the few things in life that consistently make me smile, so… Good job Bar Louie food namers. 

So the salad…  I was hoping for a great salad for one this pricey ($13 with chicken) and… that’s exactly what I got!  It was a HUGE salad, filled to the brim with toppins’ and was quite tasty too.  I really mean it was huge.  Like… fat guy after a 3 day bender huge.  Like, if a regular restaurant salad was Muggsy Bogues, this salad was Shaq.  I think this salad was bigger than most Thai people.

With that said, it wasn’t a perfect salad.  Look, I know that presentation counts, but you shouldn’t line all the toppings up in seperate sections on top of the salad.  I want my salad tossed gosh darnit!  Imagine a salad slightly smaller than the former Soviet Union.  It’s overflowing with greens and bacon and egg and cheese (two kinds!)  Now mix it all up evenly.  You can’t do it!  I can’t do it!  And I was on a date, so the pressure was ON.  And the salad was on… my lap. 

So, I liked the salad, but I didn’t need the work.  Toss it for me service staff!  It’s not my job to mix salad (and if it was, I’d get fired for spilling it everywhere) 

Final verdict: Eat it, before it eats you.

    Every cobb salad I’ve ordered anywhere doesn’t mix the toppings. It weird me out, but I guess its a restaurant standard.

      Being standard doesn’t make it right. It used to be “standard” to own slaves. Did I just compare salad preparation to slavery? Yes I did.
