The first restaurant to have quinoa on the menu?

I have just returned from my summer holidays in the UK. I went to the Center Parcs Longleat holiday village – which is a favourite of mine. I was amazed to see that one of the restaurants was offering chicken and avocado salad with quinoa.

What could I do. I had to order it just to see what I was presented with on the plate. Imagine my frustration when I was told that they had run out of avocados so it was off the menu for that week.

This was the first time I have seen quinoa on a restaurant menu so I was very annoyed not to see what other people do with it. I am very interested to know if anyone else has been served a quinoa recipe in a restaurant. Obviously living in the UK I am keen to find one here, but any mainstream restaurant serving good quinoa recipes would be news to me. Just click on the comment tab at the end of the post and I can add your quinoa meal in a restaurant finds to this post.

    I have never been to a restaurant that serve quinoa in the US. However, I noticed the cafeteria at my office serving it. I never had seen it before though.

    Quinoa is best food for those people who are suffering from high cholestrol. Even I had high chloestrol ( ~280),and within a month of eating it I started feeling so well. I completely stopped eating white rice and cut down potatoes and especially those foods which have more fat in them. Quinoa is tasteless however you could add salt in it to make it tasty. Quinoa unlike white rice doesnot make you feel heavy and uncomfortable expecially at dinner. Even though it’s expensive as compared to white rice, it’s worth it-makes you healthy, wealthy and wise. Good Luck!
