    Hi Buffy,

    Do you have an updated menu?

    I've made a jaeger schnitzel dish, but don't know if I still need to bring a salad?

    October 12, 2013

    • Buffy

      Hi Linda, So far we do not have much in the way of 'greens' - so a salad (no meat/seafood) would be awesome. Sorry for the late reply!
