Chef’s Tony’s famous wrap

If you grew up with a stomach whose orientation is “a meal without rice is never complete,” you may have second thoughts about Shenanigans because rice is nowhere in the menu but Shenanigans serves foccacia, wheat bread, mini roll or sourdough in lieu of rice and you will discover you will have no room for rice even if its available.

Shenanigans night shift in-charge Willy Cuyugan (father of Shenanigans manager Bel Busby) will serve you two baskets of Focaccia bread which he says is only available in their restaurant. The Focaccia bread which is soft and flavorful on the top with a crispy base is excellent with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dipping.

Be sure you try Shenanigans best of their line of sandwiches — Chef’s Tony’s famous wrap which is chicken (or fish) wrapped in grilled flat bread with lettuce, tomato, olives, capers, feta cheese, cucumber, pesto mayo with honey mustard dressing is a favorite with customers. No matter how hungry you are, you won’t be able to finish the four huge wraps.

Order the Italian fish sandwich for dinner, which is served in a very mouth-watering presentation….you will be full before you finish one of the two sandwiches.

Order the Penne Pasta salad with sundried tomato vinaigrette (you can order half at $7.95) which is actually Penne pasta tossed in extra virgin olive oil with balsamic vinegar, kalamata olives, capers, veggies, feta cheese and sundried tomato pesto. Also make sure you try the Insalata Mista which is mixed greens with cucumber, tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese and olives and balsamic figs vinaigrette.,,just $5 additional for fish fillet (or chicken breast as an option).
