The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

Some­times you need a break from green chile cheese­burg­ers. It’s a re­lief to have a place like Body Café , part of the cloth­ing house wares-yoga-spa em­po­rium on Cordova Road, which fo­cuses on greens, grains, fruit, and meat al­ter­na­tives. The menu dis­plays a rea­son­able amount of cre­ativ­ity when it comes to veg­e­tar­ian dishes, and it even fea­tures a num­ber of meat-based dishes. There are good rea­sons

to eat here, but while some veg­e­tar­ian dishes are cre­ative and fresh, some of the ba­sics are un­even. Why the kitchen both­ers to of­fer things made bet­ter in many other

restau­rants around town — tacos and burg­ers, for ex­am­ple — is a bit of a mys­tery. Rec­om­mended: Par­adise Salad, spring rolls,

lentil loaf, and co­conut lemon­grass curry.
