We're Going Green
Also, I’d like to give a shout out to the Saudi Arabian students at Virginia Tech. I’ve never seen a campus group have so much pride and spirit and they always have a presence at any international event at Virginia Tech. This group even has their own mascot. It’s someone dressed up as a cartoon sheikh who usually dances around. How could you not love that?!
The international flavor of the day had me in the mood to enjoy some international food, so we walked over to Green’s Grill & Sushi for lunch.
This small restaurant is located in Downtown Blacksburg right across the street from the Virginia Tech campus and it’s a very popular spot for students. This was our second visit to Green’s Grill & Sushi and it was very busy both times we’ve been.
During my first visit a few months ago, I tried the Grilled Chicken Tikka platter, which came with grilled chicken that was marinated in spices, rice, pita bread, relish, and a side salad. This was a massive amount of food and the chicken had outstanding flavor, which is a big reason why I wanted to return to Green’s this past Saturday.
I knew the chicken was good, but I decided to try something a little different for lunch and ordered the Turkish Beef Sandwich with a side salad. Similar to the chicken, the ground beef had terrific flavor and paired very well on the warm pita with onions, tomatoes, and relish. I tasted hints of nutmeg and cinnamon in the beef, which are spices I wouldn’t normally associate with ground beef but loved the flavors anyway. The sandwich and salad was plenty of food and a reasonable value at around $8.00.
I’ve been extremely impressed with the food during both of our visits to Green’s Grill and Sushi. After ordering two items that featured food from the grill, it must be time to now try the sushi.
Whether it’s by trying food at the international events at Virginia Tech or having a meal at Green’s, it’s never difficult to find unique and delicious eats in Blacksburg.
