Dish of the Day: Sandra's rotisserie chicken

by Elizabeth Rose

Sandra's defies the stereotype that health food isn't satisfying.

Sandra's Café and Health Foods Store serves a heaping plate lunch of rotisserie chicken and sides for today's dish of the day. The free-range, hormone-free chicken quarter is slow cooked and served with organic sides, like the beets and sweet potato pictured. On Fridays, mention EatLafayette and receive $1 off a plate lunch - on Friday, the special is shrimp and grits. Find Sandra's at 211 Rena Dr. for lunch Monday through Friday. They start serving at around 10:30 a.m. and stop around 2 p.m. - or until they run out of food. The store is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Every week day during EatLafayette, the popular initiative to get more diners into locally owned restaurants, The Independent spotlights a Dish of the Day; on Wednesdays, our Dish of the Day also becomes the Dish of the Week and is published in the print edition. The campaign runs until Aug. 15.

To be eligible for the Dish of the Day feature, digital images from participating EatLafayette restaurants or their patrons must be emailed to Katie Macdonald at [email protected] or Elizabeth Rose at [email protected] . (From time to time, The Independent will also photograph some of the dishes.) When emailing please include information like any special cooking techniques used, the name of the chef or cook who prepared the dish, and whether the dish is part of an EatLafayette special. To be eligible for the Dish of the Week competition, cooks or chefs must also include the recipe and instructions on how to prepare the meal.
