Lunchbox Laboratory

2 Aug

This past Friday evening, Ryan strongly (emphasis on strongly) recommended that I not break my fast on Saturday morning because he wanted to have lunch at the Lunchbox Laboratory. Given that I can down two orders of Red Mill’s Verde veg burger plus sides of fries and onion rings in one seating, my curiosity was piqued. I doubted him but prudence won out and I abstained from breakfast.

Lunchbox Laboratory is a down-to-earth and wonderfully kitschy joint which at point of entry actually made me feel as if I’m a kid again and in a cool friend’s tree house/sanctuary. The Lab’s friendly atmosphere (plus Ryan’s company, or course!) left me feeling warm and fuzzy.

For our first (and definitely not our last) visit, Ryan had the Smoker with fries and I had the TY Cobb’s Masterpiece and slaw. Plus Ryan ordered a Coconut Bliss milkshake—it was indeed blissful. After we finished our respective meals, we were done for. In fact, we had nothing else for the rest of the day other than ice cream and tea.

For me, at least, my first-time eating experience at the Lunchbox Laboratory can be summed up to a meaning equal to that symbolic act of smoking a good cigar after a good nooky, hmm, er, making great whoopee. I had no camera with me at the time of our visit but thanks to R and his phone, we got a few good shots of our orders. Hope the photos leave you hankering for a Lunchbox Lab burger.

    That meal left me feeling like a tranquilized bear. It was, however, awesome. A+++ FAST SHIPPING WOULD DO BUSINESS AGAIN.

    I thought I posted a comment about your Lunchbox Laboratory feast, but apparently I didn’t. 🙂

    You should definitely try out their tater tots with smoked tea salt. They’re so delicious and addictive! I’m glad that I don’t carry around actual cash money in my pocket, otherwise I’d swing by far more often than would be healthy. (They’re only about two-ish miles from my place.)

    I also have it on fairly good authority that the dork is tasty. Who knew? I was always curious but dubious, so haven’t ever tried it myself.

    What is it? (The dork.) Whatever it is, it makes a great name.
