On a rainy Friday afternoon, Lunch Bunch enjoyed the cozy feel of the little one-room schoolhouse where Mikki’s restaurant is located in Port Royal, next to the Cypress Wetlands.
The menu is written and updated daily on the big blackboard on the wall by chef and owner Mikki Rolain.
Mikki is also the server and she can describe her dishes and help diners select the right meal to match their mood.
David was feeling healthy and adventurous (must be all his training as a volunteer firefighter!) so he ordered the Oriental Chicken Salad. This was a definite must-have, with a giant plate filled with colorful greens, grilled chicken, mandarin oranges and cheese.
Elizabeth was feeling Italian since she ordered the Chicken Parmesan entree. She
liked the classic chicken dish covered with tomato sauce and served with a generous portion of spaghetti.
Kim was feeling breakfasty when she tried the Corned Beef Hash served with eggs over easy and toast. The hash had just the right kick, and she was glad that breakfast is served all day.
Buck, who is familiar with the menu because he is a frequent visitor, was feeling the Reuben sandwich — one of his favorites because the cheese is melted just right and the meat is piled high.
Nikki and I were feeling dreary from the weather and ordered hot sandwiches to warm us up. She tried the Roast Beef panini with Swiss on pumpernickel, while I had the Chicken Roll-Around — grilled chicken, cheese and tomato melted in a wrap.
Mikki’s is at 1638 Paris Ave., Port Royal, and is open Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 379-4322.
