Fall to me is the Covered Bridge Festival. A foodie road trip to enjoy the fall colors along country roads lead us to the Covered Bridge Cafe in Bainbridge, Ind. The covered bridge mural inside brings the theme home.
Our waitress suggested the jerk chicken sandwich. My husband order the Covered Bridge burger. We started with fish tacos. The queso fresco and chipotle aioli enhanced the full plate of tacos. The jerk marinated chicken with mango chutney was delicious. The burger, 1/3 pound patty covered with barbecue sauce, deep fried onions and jalapeño strips, Swiss cheese and bacon, is a sight to see.
It was a toss up on my dessert selection, brownie a la mode or fried cheesecake. I went with later. It was so good, the couple across from us celebrating their 49th anniversary ordered and shared. I did not share!
