How to get free cake at Fremont

[EDIT on 06/06/12: This promo has ended. To stay up-to-date with all our promotions, follow us on Twitter!]

[EDIT: Our menus have been changed! Please see our website for the most up-to-date menus]

Join us for a meal after 3pm at our Fremont store and you'll receive a free slice of cake! Much in the same way that our Palo Alto store offers free cake with your sandwich or salad for lunch, our Fremont store is giving away the same sweet deal to any sandwich, salad, pasta or specials entree for dinner. I would hurry though, this offer won't last forever and quantity is limited every night. 

Speaking of Fremont specials, we'll be changing them again very soon. Before they go away, make sure to try our current ones: Grilled Shrimp Pasta, Mango Chutney Tilapia and Chicken Carbonara.

The Mango Chutney Tilapia is one of my favorite specials. It's served with soft white rice and homemade mango chutney that's not too sweet and not too tart (from the real mango chunks). I'll be sad to see this special go.

We'll also be changing our regular lunch/dinner menu in the next few weeks, and I'm very happy to announce that our Chicken Carbonara will now be a permanent item on the menu! As one of our most popular dishes ever, we think it deserves some space on the menu board.

But with the addition of some new items comes the removal of others. Although it is one of my favorite dishes of all time, unfortunately we'll be removing our Salmon Beurre Blanc from the menu. Since we refuse to use frozen Salmon filets, it's just been too hard to keep fresh fish on hand with such low demand of this entree. But if you haven't tried it yet I strongly urge you to stop by for it. It's a dish you would expect to find at a fine-dining restaurant but we serve it for only a fraction of the price!

These changes will be made pretty soon so stop by this week if you can. And remember, come in after 3pm and you'll receive a free slice of cake with your entree! Limited quantities and limited time only (restrictions may apply).

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Rib-Eye?! And More!

by Regina 6. October 2011 06:42

[EDIT on 11/7/2011: These specials have expired. Please check follow us on Twitter to stay up to date with our specials!]

In keeping with our promise to change the Fremont specials more often, we launched three new dishes today. 

Last month, we took off our Tilapia and Fish N Chip specials and I'll be honest and admit some of you were less than thrilled with us. But we wanted to challenge your taste buds, have you try new things and be able to prove that we are capable of a whole lot more than just those two fish entrees - even though they were good. We want to expand horizons - yours and ours alike - and get a little creative.

I'd say we did just that with our new red-meat special. We took a slab of Rib-Eye steak, rolled it while stuffing it with pepper jack cheese and fresh spinach and wrapped it in bacon. Now, in my opinon, bacon-wrapped anything is great. Bacon-wrapped STEAK? Phenomenal. And bacon-wrapped STUFFED steak? Well, I can barely wrap my head around how delicious that has to be.

And it is as good as it looks and sounds. Obviously bursting with flavor, our Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Steak is served with roasted pearl onions in a red-wine reduction, alongside Chipotle mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. The mashed potatoes have great flavor and is pretty mild for those of you who don't like spice. This special is better than any other steak special we've had and a must-try! 

Because we had so many requests for the Tilapia special, we did bring the fish back but as a different entree. Our Almond-Crusted Tilapia can be served both with or without almonds (but definitely try it with if you aren't allergic!). Instead of serving it with rice pilaf, our chefs wanted to use something a little bit more elegant and tasty: Israeli couscous. Larger and slightly more pasta-like, our Israeli couscous is prepared with chopped onions, celery, carrots and lemon juice. It's light, crunchy and very refreshing. The dish is topped with lemon cream sauce, an excellent complement to both the fish and the couscous.

Lastly, we replaced our old house-favorite Chicken Carbonara with Chicken Marsala, another new dish. We know the Chicken Carbonara is very popular but it has been on the menu since the beginning. Give this one a shot! It is cooked in a similar manner but with Marsala wine, slightly healthier since it is sans-heavy cream. The chicken breast is smothered in the wine sauce with sauteed mushrooms and fresh spinach, and served with butter fettuccine and sauteed vegetables. Let us know what you think!

Expect these specials to stay through October. As always, leave any comments or suggestions for future specials. Hope you can make it into our Fremont store to try these!

Fresh Salmon Burgers and a Stuffed Chicken Puttanesca

by Regina 12. September 2011 03:40

[EDIT on 10/6/2011: These specials have expired. Please check the more recent blog posts for current specials!]

It's that time again! Our Fremont location just updated their Specials menu again, and we did something a little different this time. Instead of the 5-6 items we usually carry for a few months at a time, we've decided to trim the Specials menu to about 3-4 items only with a goal of changing them up more often. This way we'll ultimately have more specials and a larger variety.

For now we'll be serving two new items: Fresh Salmon Burger and a Stuffed Chicken Puttanesca.

Our Fresh Salmon Burger uses Salmon meat from FRESH, WHOLE Salmon. Mixed in a few spices, some dill and some egg to keep it all together. It's served on a kaiser roll with some of our homemade dill spread (made with mayo, cream cheese and fresh dill), lettuce, tomato and onions. The burger comes with a side of crispy onion strings, the perfect compliment - or additional ingredient - to your burger. 

Our Stuffed Chicken Puttanesca ranks my favorite from this round. We took a skin-on, airline cut of white meat chicken and stuffed it with Ricotta cheese, fresh spinach and mushrooms. Like our last airline chicken special, it's pan-roasted in the oven for extra tenderness. The stuffed chicken is then sliced and served on a generous portion of puttanesca, an Italian pasta dish. Our rendition of puttanesca has chopped vegetables, capers, olives and pepperoncinis, cooked in a tomato sauce with just a tad of Marsala wine. It's really good - a lot of great flavors going on in this dish.

And, of course, our Chicken Carbonara is back again. We seriously considered taking this one off the menu for a bit since it's been on every Specials menu since the beginning but our customers love it so much! What do you think? Should we take it off the next round or leave it?

As always, feel free to leave comments or suggestions for any future Specials. Until then, hope you can stop by to try these new dishes! They'll probably be around for 3-4 weeks until the next round.

Bon Appetit!

New Fremont Specials

by Regina 16. April 2010 09:25

It’s that time again! Every couple of weeks our Fremont location likes to change their specials, spice things up a bit (pun intended!). We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on our Tilapia Buerre Blanc, so that one is staying for the time being. Our Chicken Carbonara has become a house favorite over the last few months, so it, too, is back by popular demand.

Let me introduce the new specials that will be launching tonight!

Firstly, we have our Prawn Frites:

5 tiger prawns served with creamy polenta and sauteed vegetables

If I can be honest, I’m usually not a big fan of shrimp – so it surprised me that I really liked this dish. There’s an unique blend of flavors going on in your mouth when you bite that tiger-shrimp because it was first battered, fried, then dipped in a house honey-mayo sauce, and finally tossed in fried potato strings. It definitely left me craving for more

linguini tossed in a homemade thai peanut sauce, diced white meat chicken, red onions and ground peanuts. served with garlic bread

The two other specials now being offered are Thai Chicken Linguini and Fish ‘N’ Chips. If you like Pad Thai, or even simply like peanuts and peanutbutter, the Thai Chicken Linguini is a good pasta dish that is tasty and yet not overwelming in peanut flavor.

beer-battered Pollock filets fried to perfection and served with garlic fries

And Fish ‘N” Chips? The yuzu citrus glaze and homemade tartar sauce that accompanies this classic dish makes it unique to TPO.

Remember, these specials are only available at our Fremont location, but they are available all day after 11am (after 3pm on weekends while we’re serving brunch). Let us know what you think! Bon Appetit!
