Top Chef Junior competitor visits local restaurant
“I tried a few items off of the Odyssey Cafe lunch menu,” he said. “The Caesar salad had a dressing that tasted homemade with delicious fresh shaved Parmesan cheese on top. The Chicken Alfredo had a sauce that was rich in flavor and had a great texture. The pasta tasted freshly made, which made the dish come together as a whole. I also tasted the cheeseburger and it was cooked to perfection. Overall, I recommend Odyssey because of the delicious food being served and the exceptional service.”
