While in the Granger, Mishawaka, South Bend, Elkhart area, you have to check out Primal Kitchen in Granger, Indiana! If you're in town, enjoying a Notre Dame football game, Primal Kitchen! This is the place to go for clean eating, paleo, and organic food, which is at a premium here in Northern Indiana.
Knowing the owners personally, their talent, desire and work ethic will serve this business well. This has been their passion for many years, and I'm so excited to see them bring this kind of food and drink option to the Granger and South Bend area. Primal Kitchen is new to the restaurant game, and this is actually the first Primal Kitchen Restaurant. The second one, will open in Culver City, California, with others coming to Santa Cruz, Portland, Sacramento, Anchorage, and Los Angeles soon!
One of my favorite breakfast/lunch options is chicken and waffles, and I was so excited to hear that Primal Kitchen would be offering their take on it, breakfast, lunch and dinner!
OH MAN! This did not disappoint! The almond flour, coconut flour and herb encrusted chicken, along with the honey cinnamon syrup was spot on! The waffle was moist, full of flavor and matched perfectly with the breading on the chicken. The chicken was dark meat chicken, adding a lot of moisture to the chicken as well. The serving size was perfect for dinner and the price point was great for a clean meal like this.
My wife ordered and enjoyed the chipotle lime fish tacos. The chipotle sauce was tasty and the fish was seasoned and cooked really well. We were slightly disappointed in the portion size for the price, which was around $17 or so. But you can't expect cheap Mahi in Indiana...
All in all, the meal was great. It's a very interesting set up, with a mixture of a sit down restaurant, deli, grocery, and a coffee shop.
When you walk in, there is a screen with the menu. You order your food items and drinks. Once you order, you can find a seat after taking a number. When the meal is ready, they bring your food to you. There are gluten free beers, clean FitVine wines, bone broths, smoothies and Primal Kitchen coffee. We enjoyed an Omission Pale Ale, which was great!
This place is different, and in an area of a lot of the same, give Primal Kitchen a try!
