before i start with my review, massive thanks + appreciation go to tim duggan, an amazing knoxville/nashville photographer who took these gorgeous pictures + so graciously allowed me to use them here. if any locals are looking for an fantastic photographer, make sure to check out his portfolio!
now, onto the food! silly goose is a couscous, salads, wraps + sandwiches restaurant in east nashville (conveniently in walking distance for us). when it first opened, it took us a little while to visit because we kept thinking, how good can couscous + sandwiches really be? once we finally went, we were floored by how amazing it was. everything is packed full of fresh, local ingredients + wonderful flavor combinations.
pictured above is the king kong couscous, which features sesame couscous with curried shrimp, mint, ginger, cashews, coriander + avocado ($10.50). yeah, sounds insanely good, doesn’t it?
in addition to their couscous plates, they make delicious sandwiches. my two favorites so far are the bird (grilled chicken breast, sun-dried tomato, avocado, bacon, peppered goat cheese on organic flax seed bread -$9) + lyle’s surprise (hot cappicola, thommé, arugula pesto, basil, shaved fennel, balsamic syrup on rosemary foccacia – $9), both which are served with salad, couscous, or a little of each.
finally, i have to give a shoutout to my personal favorite – the mexico city couscous (pictured below). it boasts red chili couscous, grilled chicken, poblano peppers, cilantro, goat cheese, mango, + lime juice ($9.50) + is simply perfect.
next time you’re in my ‘hood, try the silly goose! i know you’ll leave impressed, full, healthy + happy.
