August 5, 2012 – Afternoon snack

Written by: Second Stomach


Blizzard, Purple Parrot, and I were waiting for our shuttle to go to the airport. Meanwhile, we decided to spend a bit of time in the lounge right inside our hotel. It’s happy hour from 3-6 pm and we needed something to eat before we left.


Here’s a look at the happy hour menu:

Today, I chose from the happy hour menu:

Adobo Chicken Sliders


Adobo Chicken Sliders – $5

My dish came with two sliders and a reasonable portion of fries!


Here’s a closer look at the adobo chicken slider:

– The sliders came with pico, salsa, and sour cream. It was overall a little bit spicy and unfortunately, the chicken was a bit dry.

– I thought the best part of this special was the fries. The fries were crispy on the outside and very nicely salted.


Taste: 3/5

Presentation: 3.5/5

Value: 4.5/5


This is the salad that Blizzard ordered. It was a type of spinach salad tossed with feta cheese, nuts, and a vinaigrette.


Here’s my bill today. Yes, I also enjoyed a happy hour special of white wine too (it was okay, from Oregon, and I was told not to expect too much for $4):


The Crowne Plaza offers really great value happy hour specials. We enjoyed relaxing here this afternoon as we waited for our shuttle. I will surely miss having everything tax-free, including food. This bill is my last reminder of how I will have to return for a visit, even to partake on more great value meals.


The good…

– Great value during happy hour

– Casual setting


The bad…

– Location inside hotel means it probably only reaches out to hotel guests.
