Trigos Colombian Restaurant – Lawrenceville, GA

20140410-191727.jpg

Today’s chorus of “looking for lunch in all the wrong places” took me up 120 toward Lawrenceville. Just about to cross 316, I saw Trigos Colombian Restaurant off to my right, made a quick left, then a u-turn and caught the light into their complex.  Trigos is located in a development that’s roughly a third full and blocked from view from the street.  I walked in the door and up to the counter which leads into the kitchen.  A pleasant young lady directed me to a table, first in Spanish then, when I gave the quizzical dog-hearing-high-pitched-noise look, in English.

As I sat at one of the tables lining the opposite wall I saw a steady stream of patrons, both eating in and carrying out.  As the menu arrived, the server began telling me the daily special and I, honestly, never looked at the menu.

The special started with a vegetable soup with potatoes, peas, beans and carrots.  This soup was chicken-stock based (as opposed to tomato based), which made it more like a really good chicken noodle soup, except without noodles or chunks of chicken.

This was followed with a plate filed with white rice, chicken in a yellow thick sauce, fried sweet plantains and a small salad.

I plan to go back and try the empanadas.
