fresher than a motherf*cker: fresh corn grill

When I was nine years old, Fresh Corn Grill opened its first location on Ohio and Westwood Blvd. My mom used to work nearby, so I was one of the first customers to check this place out. I fell in love with the food, and for an entire summer I ordered penne pasta with cheese every single day. 

A few months ago, I learned that Fresh Corn was opening up a new (and bigger) location just a bit further down on Westwood. Their old spot was always jam-packed, super crowded and far from intimate. This new place is huge and beautiful, plus you don't have to worry about a stranger elbowing you while you're eating. At night, this place got pretty dark, but I actually prefer the mood-lighting and ambiance. Just like the old location, you still walk up to the counter and order your food. It's convenient and easy; they bring the food to your table, so you don't have to wait around for a check. I also love the fact that they have valet parking ($2), as it can be extremely difficult to find parking in Westwood.  

The ingredients are always fresh, healthy, loaded with vegetables, and very filling. The first thing we ordered was the chicken vegetable bowl, which is chicken that sits atop corn and a medley of other vegetables. It comes with an option of ginger curry or teriyaki dressing (we chose both). We also got the taco bowl: chicken, lettuce, beans,  guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa verde and cheese. It wasn't the best meal I've ever had, but it also didn't disappoint. 

Here are a few other things I recommend from their menu:

Caprese Pasta
Grilled Vegetable Pasta
Cajun Shrimp Pizza

Cheers,
Joyce
