Hello! Dreary afternoon here in DC but its good weather for getting a lot of work done. I ended up going back to Maoz for lunch today and had Emily and Kara from work come with me. This place is pretty lifechanging for lunch if you’re looking for somewhere to get an awesome and reasonable meal! You can read about my first time here which has a lot more pictures and shows the whole salad bar with the steps along the way. I loved my lunch there last time so much that I got pretty much the same thing again – the falafel salad bowl with eggplant and hummus as add ins, and then topped it with tons of the fresh salads from the salad bar.
The salad bowl had:
- Carrot Salad
- Beet Salad
- Chickpea Salad
- Veggie Salad
- Cauliflower + Broccoli
- Red Cabbage Salad
- Tabouli Salad
I also got a carrot juice on the side, which was just OK. I liked it, but it was literally just carrots (which is what I ordered) so it was a little blah. Next time I’ll probably get a mix of carrot, orange, and apple instead of just carrot.
This place was just as good as the first time. It is so fresh and so many options, and I love that you can load up your bowl or sandwich with tons and tons of different fresh salads and they don’t weight it afterwards to charge you more. It is definitely a little filling and both times I was planning on saving some for later, but it was just so good I could not stop. I am feeling pretty full now so don’t think an afternoon snack is in my future.
So I have one more thing to share about my trip to Oklahoma City at the beginning of June. On Sunday night, we had a reception at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. This museum has the largest comprehensive collection of Dale Chihuly Glass anywhere in the world. I am not much of an art person, but this was AWESOME. He basically blows glass into different sculptures and shapes and it’s pretty incredible to look at. Here’s a few photos from inside the gallery.
And then my absolute favorite part, which was a glass ceiling that had tons of different blown glass sculptures on top of it. This was the view from below looking up at the ceiling.
How cool is that!?
Are you into art? What’s your favorite way to enjoy it – a museum, an art class, photography, etc?
