Maybe you’d rather start with a starter. Then by all means order the guacamame, a rich and chunky blend of housemade guacamole and edamame, served with chips that are also made onsite HS GREEN 24 L O C A L | 11 . 2017 Nutella ® Pizza I’m one of those people who thinks you can really judge a restaurant by its buffalo chicken wrap. And in this case, HS Green wins again. Weighing in at 661 calories, this spicy, tangy handful features crispy chicken tossed in a vinegary buffalo sauce, romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery and red onion revved-up with the restaurant’s own jalapeno ranch dressing. It’s a perfect lunch option. When the weather finally turns, you’ll be able to meet brisk fall temps head-on with a bowl of HS Green’s hearty turkey chili, served with scallions, cheese and a side of chips. Or go a lot lighter with the traditional chicken tortilla soup or the beautiful chicken, mushroom and leek soup, a clean and satisfying protein-and-vegetable concoction guaranteed to warm you up without filling you up. Maybe you’d rather start with a starter. Then by all means order the guacamame, a rich and chunky blend of housemade guacamole and edamame, served with chips that are also made onsite. Or kick it up a notch with pickle and jalapeno fries, a combo of dill and butter pickles and jalapeños battered and fried and served with jalapeño ranch sauce.
