Jam Cafe Chicken Salad

Jam Cafe in Takapuna ( Hurstmere Road) is close to home.It's virtually always packed at lunchtime. But we were fortunate enough to find a seat yesterday. A thunderstorm had been forecast so some of the regulars were not venturing out from their offices or homes . John opted for the sizeable lamb burger which he happily demolished. I had the Jam Cafe Chicken Salad which was a real treat.It was made up out of:
  • Sliced chicken breast
  • Roasted sliced almonds
  • Grilled Halloumi cheese
  • Mango slices
  • Sliced Avocado
  • Mesclun Salad Leaves
  • Potato Chips ( no, not the ones out a packet but cafe-made long crispy deepfried slithers) which were decoratively draped over the top)
Jam deserves its popularity.Much of the food served in this cafe is organic and free range . Quite a few items are also gluten free.The coffee is roasted locally and the service is very friendly.

On the way home the weather suddenly turned. Sheets of rain made visibilty therough the windscreen almost impossible. Not far away to the West a tornado had struck and created havoc. A bad day for Auckland.
