With 2018 around the corner, and resolutions rearing their optimistic heads, it’s time to explore the menu at The Good Kind.
The brainchild of Tim McDiarmid of Tim the Girl catering, The Good Kind was set to open as a standalone shop at the Pearl before moving into the Bottling Department to join ramen, donuts, burgers and rotisserie chicken as part of the lineup. Its first iteration featured 50-plus items, but the menu has been whittled down to just the hits of smoothies, juices, sandwiches, and bowls.
All organic and local when possible, the meals and The Good Kind are there for you when you need to reset, when you need to self-care and when you’re sick of burgers.Though not vegetarian in the least, the vegetable-forward menu includes hearty panini like the tomato, mozzarella and basil, along with a veggie burger, and a signature barbacoa bahn mi, a hit during the Pearl’s Dia de los Muertos celebration this November.
With temperatures heading south, McDiarmid and co. reached for comfort through their bowls. The Market Bowl features produce found during weekend markets and it is customizable so you can load up on choice of dressing (the spicy carrot ginger is a winner) and add-ons such as chicken, feta, beef meatballs, boils eggs or nuts and seeds.
Keep warm with a bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese, a veggie-filled free-range chicken rice stew, go light with the soba noodle.
You can’t go wrong at The Good Kind.
