Stony Ridge Uncommon Kitchen
New Moon Natural Foods’ quaint appearance and convenient location beckons visitors and locals to stop in and grab a healthy snack or make for a light grocery shop before speeding off on their way to work or play. Most all customers beam in pleasant surprise when they find yet another scrumptious business tucked inside New Moon: Stony Ridge Uncommon Kitchen, “Tahoe’s Fast & Healthy Ethnic Deli.”
Call in advance or wait as you shop; the Uncommon Kitchen staff labor away, preparing farm-fresh ingredients and creating delicious dishes that never see the life of processed or pre-packaged meals. That’s what Uncommon Kitchen is all about: integrity and love. In other words, organic and biodegradable. When you eat from Uncommon Kitchen, you eat healthy.
However, it’s not just about making good decisions for your body and your planet. At Uncommon Kitchen, you have choices--tasty, chock-full of spices and herbs, fresh choices. Their daily specials range from fish tacos to falafel to pad Thai. Where else can you find a place that’s so delicious, healthy, and versatile with its recipes? It doesn’t stop there. Boy, does Uncommon Kitchen do salads, from Thai to Greek, all doused with full-fledged freshness and dressed to perfection. If it’s a cold day or you’re craving a homemade stew, they offer soups and tangy noodle bowls aplenty. Of course, if you’re a traditional sandwich eater, Uncommon Kitchen nudges “traditional” out of the way with their famous New Orleans-inspired “Muffaletta” sandwich and a pressed Italian creation called “Pan Bagna,” complete with an Italian olive salad (inside the sandwich!). But wait, you want Sushi for lunch? No problem, Uncommon Kitchen has that, too. A lot of it.
Don’t forget to grab some freshly homemade sides and sauces such as pesto, hummus, guacamole, salsa fresca, seaweed salad, papaya salad, orzo salad, and more. Vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike love Uncommon Kitchen’s rotating homemade desserts from chocolate pudding to apple turnovers, and if you’re not hungry, simply stop by for a house-brewed Kombucha, Thai iced tea, or Yerba Mate, your way. Uncommon Kitchen also caters and bakes occasion cakes for special days. You might want to take a look at their website now to drool in the privacy of your own home. Thank me later, fellow foodies!
