Mmm… Almond pesto linguine

I’m not one for big box chain shops and restaurants, but when it’s a work lunch and we need to go somewhere close, easy and agreed to by everyone, Tap & Barrel will do.

I’ve gotten a little bored of their menu because Tap is the go to place for lunch, I’ve been there too many times. Today I chose the Almond Pesto Linguine for $16.95 and was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the dish more than I thought I would – it helps that I like pesto 🙂

What I didn’t like about the dish was that there was a substantially large pool of oil at the bottom of my plate, so much that I started using the spoon to separate the pasta and chicken so the oil could drip down into the plate. Yes, that was a bit gross but overall the dish was tasty. Altho, I probably wouldn’t order it again.

The dish included sauteed chicken, handmade almond pesto, garlic shallot cream, grape tomatoes and feta.
