Hannah’s Off the Square in Denton, TX

Fried Green Tomato Sandwich

 

Hannah’s Off the SquareHannah’s Off the Square is a gem among terrible restaurants in Denton, TX.  If you live in Denton, you know that finding a decent, non-chain restaurant can be a major challenge. I lived there for two years during grad school, and I had two favorites.  And I wouldn’t describe them as “great food.”  Last week, I visited my brother, Toby, in Denton and we decided to try something new. I had heard good things about Hannah’s, but considering people up there rave about mediocre (at best!) Mexican food restaurants… I was skeptical.

Tuna Mango Salsa Sandwich

Tuna Mango Salsa Sandwich

This casual fine dining restaurant has a quiet lunch atmosphere with tasteful jazz playing overhead.  Our waiter was attentive and gave us daily specials with a little extra gusto. Everything sounded tasty! Toby chose an item off the daily specials – tuna sandwich with mango salsa and bean sprouts on a whole-wheat bun. The grouping was a nice balance of sweet, savory, with a tiny crunch.  I have to admit, I think the tuna steak was just a little fishy (but, I’m a fish snob).  I settled on the fried green tomato sandwich topped with feta cheese, hummus spread, red onion, cucumber, cilantro pesto mayo and roasted red pepper. Paired with fresh fruit and iced tea, I left a happy camper! My sandwich tasted fresh and was a surprising combination – I really dug the cucumbers! Toby even decided he wanted to try to recreate it at home.
