While I love street meat, every once in a while I need a change. Therefore, Today’s Lunch is a quiche lorraine from the Street Sweets truck. It’s not vegetarian, but it’s not a meat dish either. It’s dairy with a little meat, and definitely lighter than my usual lunch.
I’ve been wanting to try Street Sweets for some time, but don’t usually eat dessert with lunch, although on occasion, I have eaten dessert for lunch.
The quiche lorraine ($6) from Street Sweets had a nice thick buttery crust on the outside, as well as a thin crust on the bottom. Crust is one of the best things about eating pie-like substances (pot pies, quiches, actual pies), and this one was buttery and tasty.
The inside of the quiche had a light, creamy filling, and there were plenty of pieces of ham. Not sliced ham, but square chunks, like from a baked ham. When I first cut the quiche in half to take the picture below, it looked like the ham might be lacking, but once I started eating, there was plenty of ham. It’s just hiding at the edges in the picture below.
The quiche did not have much of a Swiss cheese taste. I would have liked it a little cheesier, but that’s just my personal preference because I love cheese!
Today’s Lunch was a refreshing change from the heavy street meat over rice meals I usually have. This was a very nice quiche, and as a bonus, I won’t walk around stuffed all afternoon (although it’s not exactly low on the calorie and cholesterol scale).
