Local Foods



Local Foods

upper kirby

-------------------------------------------

Local foods features seasonal items and a variety of sandwiches and salads prepared with ingredients from local markets. 


It first opened in Rice Village, but the allure of gourmet comfort food has led to the opening of a new location on the corner of Kirby and Westheimer. 


The Upper Kirby location has a fresh feel in both its picturesque outdoor patio and preppy indoor d├ęcor. The sandwich shop’s clean and crisp atmosphere is rather calming and a perfect location for a casual meal.


Orders are taken at the counter by the friendly staff who then hand you a number while you find a seat and wait for your meal. 


The downside- this place has become quite popular so finding a seat might take you a few minutes.

Truffled Egg Salad

market greens, tomato, parmesan, aioli, pretzel bun

-------------------------------------------

This is the type of sandwich you crave after eating it once. A gourmet recipe which turns the regular egg salad sandwich into an epicurean experience.  


The egg salad is embellished  with just the right amount of salt and truffles aioli sauce and sits on a warm pretzel bun. We ordered the sandwich with the Asian cabbage slaw and the utterly fresh Tuscan Kale salad prepared with golden raisins, toasted pine nuts, and parmesan.  


A palatable dish for a summer meal.

Cruchy Chicken

nut "crumble", provolone, buttermilk ranch, pickles, tomato, pretzel bun

-------------------------------------------

A Local Foods favorite, this sandwich features a combination of flavors that mesh perfectly well. 


The tender chicken is well accompanied by the pickles and buttermilk ranch, while the crusted nuts make for a prefect crunch in each bite. The sandwich comes with two sides which are just as delicious. 


We ordered the carefully seasoned housemade chips and cabbage slaw. The cabbage slaw is prepared with edamame, bean sprouts, and lemongrass vinaigrette for an Asian twist.
