You're probably thinking, "But you work in a grocery store?" True. In fact, I work in a great grocery store, with thousands of products that I enjoy, and a solid deli. Being a full time worker means that there are roughly two hundred and sixty days out of the year that I will eat "lunch" at work. If I ate Italian Sandwiches from the deli that often I would die, and my taste buds would strike like SAG members.
So. I've eaten pretty much everywhere within a mile radius of Wheatsville at least once, with the exception of a few new places, and FINO. I will try them, but all in due time.
This leads me to the topic of this post: Boomerang's. I tried these gourmet meat and veggie pies a few years back, and wasn't that stoked. Something changed.
At least once a week, I go and have what I call my "heavy lunch". You see, you can add a "floater" of mash and gravy (not vegetarian) for a nominal fee to the top of your little flaky potless pot pie like thing. This is somewhat decadent. I can tell from the mouthfeel that the pie crust is heavy on the butter, so adding glistening, reflective gravy, and a big starchy pile of potatoes seems a bit absurd.
I usually get either the beef and cheese pie, or the Guinness steak and potato pie when I visit our neighbor. They have several other options, but I don't eat a whole lot of chicken, and if I wanted vegetarian fare (sorry, no vegan fare there), I'd just stay at work. So, I tend to stick to what I like there, and be done with it.
Boomerang's is a decent, moderately priced venue for a quick, filling lunch, with or without the mash and gravy.
