If you’re looking for a good place to go out for a date, Friday night out or simply a new place to visit for lunch, I recommend checking out The Pour House at Machinery Hall located in downtown Chillicothe, Ohio.
Rustic meets modern in this location, with its exposed bricks, comfy booths, bar, and a high ceiling. Walking in, you are greeted with a beautiful, huge old image of the Chillicothe area that adds a nice personality to the room.
The menu has a variety of burgers, handhelds starters and it even has a kids menu. There were so many different things I wanted to try, but we both finally came to a decision.
The first thing we ordered was their Smoked Gouda + Apple Chicken Sandwich. The name is just as it sounds, but it still had a surprising twist when you bit into the sandwich. It came paired with a soft, traditional bun that had a honey-like flavor, resting in between the buns was fresh greens, sriracha aioli, chicken and the piece that tied it all together – an apple slice. A unique blend, the apple slice added to the medley of flavors as opposed to overpowering it.
On the side was a batch of freshly cut fries and I do mean fresh. Our waitresses explained that they were actually cut fresh, cooked and delivered. Crispy and fresh, the fries were a great touch with the sandwich.
We also ordered Market No.9 Taco, of which I had no clue what I was getting myself into. Delivered in a soft shell, all three tacos were topped with a generous amount of fresh greens – which is the first thing that caught my attention – served also with quinoa, salsa verde, black beans. The biggest jaw-dropper was the fact that I ate all of these tacos and was none the wiser to the fact that the “chicken” actually turned out to be sweet potato.
Without realizing it, I had ordered a vegetarian taco – and let me tell you, it was one of the best tacos I have had in ages. A nice mix of sweet and salty in flavor, I can see myself going out of my way for this meal again.
On the side, my taco was served with a side of chips and fresh salsa. The chips were delivered warm, which I have always been a fan of and in pairing it with the fresh salsa, brought the whole meal together.
