Green Peas, Culver City - A Quick Hit

Mattapoisett in LA Jul 20, 2009 10:40 PM

So one day Dommy and I finally made the trek [Walking quite a way] to try out Vinoteque. We were surprised to find a hastily written note on the door announcing their closure. Harumph. Since then, we had been keeping a close eye on the space in case something else popped up and a few weeks ago Green Peas arrived.

The First time we went we arrived during out lunch hour and had arrived 5 seconds after the county health inspector making her first unannounced inspection We were Planning to eat there but that was blown out by the 45 minutes to get food which we had them wrap to go. Dommy had a Curry Chicken salad Sandwich which she and a Co-worker I sent there said were great. they chicken was not over done and mushy but had a firmness and a good curry flavor. I had the Mushroom Endive and Feta sandwich since I was trying to be healthy. The issue was the ingredients were too good the Endive had real bite and the Feta was good and salty. While I didn't prefer it, Dommy Liked it a lot.

The Second time we got takeout for the Dodgers Game. Dommy Wanted to try the Prosciutto Sandwich and we Liked the Curry Chicken Salad so Much we got it this time as a Wrap. There was a Ton of Prosciutto in the Sandwich it was pretty hefty. While the Wrap was a little worse for wear after the trek to dodgers stadium it was still good. Which brings us to our one complaint so Far which is they over dress their salads. Each of the side salads seemed to be made with Good quality Farmers Market Green mixes but each was drowning in dressing. by the time we were at Chavez Ravine the greens were a goopy mess. So word to the wise ask for it on the side

Take Care

    I am guessing you guys know this but they don't normally have 45 minute waits. Their pizzas are great deals too.

      I've been quite a few times since the original post and while it has never been 45 minutes again it has never been what I would consider quick for a sandwich and a salad. usually in the 20-25 minute range

      Finally stopped by Green Peas this past Tuesday and got the chicken curry salad. I loved it so much that I had to return for lunch today. This time I got the vegan chicken curry salad sandwich on wheat pita. Dare I say that I liked the vegan chicken better? It's so very addicting. The split pea soup was great as well.

            Ahh! That was the delicious looking sandwich Dommy twittered. We've noticed it the last couple of times on our way to ice cream at Matteo's. Been meaning to try it. Thanks for the review!

              Yup... he's talking about the same one...

              The other thing I like about Green Peas (aside from their resonable prices, most sandwiches which come with soup or salad are $6.99!) is you have a choice of breads for your sandwiches... I like the Ciabata (Which keeps messy things like the Curry together) and the wrap is also good... I DO want to try their sweet Pretzel bread... but not sure with what sandwich yet...

                Jackson Market is our current choice for a sandwich fix. Will definitely have to give GP a try. All I have to do is convince the wife is to tell her we're going to combine it with a run for some Matteo's ice cream. Smoked milk and coffee make for an great double scoop combo.
