Philly Takeout: Fuel

When the weather outside is frightful (continuing on yesterday's theme) and you're in need of a grocery run, what do you do for dinner? You order in. When I was in Chicago I ordered from grubHub a few times, and I was excited to see that they serve Philly, too. Since D had eaten a large lunch, he was looking for something light, and initially suggested we walk over to Fuel. However, given the sleety conditions, I was more apt to stay in and have the food come to us. Luckily, Fuel offers delivery through grubHub!

According to their website, "Fuel is a cafe right out of the hills of Hollywood dropped into South Philadelphia. The first of its kind in the area, Fuel features a delicious menu of panini’s, wraps, and salads all made fresh and all under 500 calories." Sounds good to me!

I ordered from the "Filler er' Up" section of the menu and opted for the eggplant and goat cheese wrap (275 calories, 9 g protein) -- it featured roasted eggplant, goat cheese, pesto, roasted red peppers, and arugula, all in a wheat wrap. It also came with a salad of mixed greens with a vinaigrette dressing on the side. D decided to "Go Green" and ordered the shrimp and avocado salad (395 calories, 12 g protein), which featured sliced avocado, spinach leaves, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and a dijon lemon vinaigrette dressing.

We both enjoyed our meals -- D couldn't get over how large the shrimp were. And I was a huge fun of my wrap sandwich, and will definitely have to try to recreate it.
