Home Restaurant and Cafe

January 24, 2012


I have been wanting to try Home Restaurant and Cafe for several weeks.  Since I heard they do everything locally sourced and completely homemade I have been intrigued.

When I tried it this weekend with some friends, I was not disappointed.  The extra effort put into using local sources really paid off.  The first thing I noticed about my food was that it was just fresher tasting than any other restaurant in town.  Especially the bread, which is literally made from scratch only a few hours before you order it.  The Bulgogi Cheese Steak I ordered came on a french roll that was so soft I could swear it was made only minutes before.

The Bulgogi meat was also wonderfully fresh and delicious.  What is Bulgogi cheesesteak, you might ask.  Well it is a Korean way of preparing meat that involves marinating the meat for hours in a special sauce to improve flavor and tenderness.
My wife ordered the pasta salad, which she reports is the best she ever had.  She said, “unlike some places that overuse mayonaise, this one is just right.”  The pizza also looked very appetizing on home made crust.  For dessert I tried the homemade chocolate pudding which was incredibly rich.

The only problem is, it is small.  We took a group of six and took up most of the restaurant.  I hope that in the future, Home prospers enough in Bowling Green to move to a larger location.

Overall I give Home 4 out of 5 stars.  The food is excellent and as fresh as is possible.  However, I like to take groups to eat and I feel like my small group of six was a burden on the restaurant due to the small size.

Cambridge Market and Cafe

December 31, 2011

In Bowling Green, One restaurant stands above the rest if you are a business person looking for a quick cheap and healthy lunch.  Cambridge Market and Cafe is well known as the place to go for lunch in Bowling Green.  I prefer to go there for dinner to avoid the crowds.

At Cambridge they have daily specials to choose from that are different every day.  I have never been disappointed by anything I have sampled, but there are a few standouts in my mind.  The hot chicken salad is nearly famous and has received almost a cult following.  Other favorites are the marinated chicken breast, Chutney Pork Loin, and Meatloaf.

If you can not find something on the menu for the day that you like, sandwiches made from fresh cut meet and vegetables are always an option.  There are several Sandwiches to be chosen from the menu or a personalized sandwich can be created just as easily.

If you are a dessert lover, Cambridge has wonderful cakes and pies.  I personally recommend the turtle cheese cake, and the chocolate pie.
