For my celebration for my acceptance to the Wilson Workforce Rehabilitation Center, my family and I went to my personal favorite restaurant, Parallel 38. It can be difficult to get a close parking spot so I have to dock some ♿️ points. Most of the seats are on the second floor with no elevator. But it is worth it (at least for me). To start, we got the same thing that we always get, the ‘Spread Three’ of the ‘Spreads and Dips’. We got hummus, tapenade, and tzatziki. With their soft, tasty bread it’s heaven from the get go. Parallel 38’s style is Mediterranean, small dish, tapas meals that are great for sharing. My mom ordered Brussels Sprouts with Bacon. My dad ordered the Grilled Octopus Salad and the Boquerones (white anchovies with citrus). I ordered the Sirloin Steak and the Skewered Chicken with Feta Yogurt. Before I dive into each, just know that there wasn’t anything that I didn’t love. Though it’s hard to beat the ‘Spread Three’, the Octopus Salad was a surprise and came close. The mandarins were impossibly juicy and went surprisingly well with the octopus. The steak is consistently great as they they have great beef that they don’t cook too much (I get it fully rare). That anchovies, too, were tasty and perfectly salty. Even the Brussels Sprout Salad was great, something that’s hard to do for brussels. 38 was and still is my favorite restaurant in CVille. Just extremely tasty.
