Often one of the most difficult things to do is to decide on a place for lunch when you are meeting someone for business. Finding a restaurant not too far from work; one that has good choices; one that is relaxed enough that you can hear yourself think; and one that can be enjoyed by both parties, can be done sometimes.
We were able to decide on the Black Pearl in North Logan. The atmosphere in the restaurant is pleasant and conducive to talking and discussing the world of business.
We arrived before the crowd, so we were able to be seated quickly and have our choice of tables. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient at the Black Pearl. As we sat, we had our drink order taken. One thing I like about the lunch at the Black Pearl is that the lunch menu is a great value. The lunch entrees are about six bucks. The lunch includes your choice of soup, rice, wontons, potstickers and a meat option.
Today, I tried the basil chicken. It was great because it wasn’t deep fried chicken. It was pieces of chicken with beans, onions, seaweed and a few other ingredients. What I love about the basil chicken is that it is fragrant and has a nice basil flavor to go along with the Asian flavor.
The hot and sour soup had a bit more of a tang than I remember, but I liked the soup with the increased kick. The portions are not huge, but there is definitely enough that you feel satisfied when you leave.
If you get a chance to try the Black Pearl and haven??ª?t yet. Make it a point to stop by for lunch, or dinner. It is a nice change in atmosphere and I believe if you like oriental food, you will enjoy the Black Pearl.
The Black Pearl is located at 2095 North Main, North Logan, (435) 750-0888.
