|Pangea is only supposed to be open until the middle of June. Then what???|
Being the happy, docile type, as you well know, I was more than willing to run through the maze, hoping for a taste of something delicious if I found my way.
|The dining area is bright, noisy and funky. Nice heavy furniture and tableware.|
|This was a delicious, big beer|
|The soup was prettier before the soup was poured in|
|This board does not get points for pretty but it was very tasty|
|The vegetable stew was another big bowl of chickpeas in my life that I can do without|
|The roasted rutabaga was worth the race through the maze|
|The oxtail pie was amazing - black truffles in the sauce|
|The poached pear was light and refreshing|
There were a few specials, which we didn't try, and a few extras brought to the table - a display of bread and flatbread with a pea and spinach hummus that was very good, a bowl of fried chickpeas and candied crickets that I ate only to appease the scientists but the bugs tasted like dust so I don't really care if it has 2x the protein per oz as beef, and a final note of brownie "petit fours" and Nutella cookies that were both quite delectable.
|The bread board was beautiful|
|Surprise chocolate finish!!!|
|Fried chickpeas with dusty candied crickets that I thought tasted like desiccated flies. Not that I would know.|
Pangea is a casual setting - bright, noisy, and friendly - all with a student smile. Lunch was $18/person plus a 17% fee that goes towards scholarships and student activities. Beverages extra.
