Dining Out with HEA – It was a wonderful evening at Rik’s Cafe – Watch for the Next Dine out soon and Monthly Potlucks
Dining out with HEA and Monthly potlucks between Adventures is a wonderful opportunity to get together and catch up. We all love the community of the Adventure Potlucks! Dining Out with HEA gives us a chance to enjoy that community some more. Also, this is an opportunity for restaurants to learn about HEA and whole food plant based/no oil preparation.. It adds to our list of options to choose for dining out on other occasions.
Delicious and creative dining at Rik’s Cafe
Our November Dining Out with HEA:
Rik’s Cafe – 1065 Maryland Ave, Hagerstown
– he loves to create! And there are always
several plant based options.
Ask for the 3-2-1 dressing!
What a delight for HEA folks to get together for an
evening cooked by someone else! Folks were from
various past adventures, and we all had fun catching
with each other
Roasted Winter Root Quinoa Salad
The meals we enjoyed at Rik’s definitely confirm their website description: “Rik’s Cafe is a contemporary American restaurant. Our menu features classic sandwiches, hardy soups and crisp fun salads, as well as innovative small plates and entrees.”
“We believe in using locally sourced products when possible on an evolving, fresh, made to order menu. This ensures that every guest will receive the highest quality dining experience in a warm, casual environment, served by the greatest staff on earth.” Rik created several salad s(including my favorite Beet and Blueberry Salad) with 3-2-1 dressing, and entree options including a rice bowl with portabella and a wonderful spicy burger. It was a delicious evening.
