Below, is just a sneak peek of what we enjoyed for lunch and what you can expect when dining at the Monashee.

Pulled Pork Sandwich

Three Valley Gap Dining

Served on a Sweet Bun with BBQ Sauce and topped with 2 onion rings.  I chose the fresh garden salad as a side.  A very tasty sandwich and the onion rings inside the sandwich was a perfect match!

Reuben Sandwich

3 Valley Gap Dining

An authentic toasted Reuben topped with dill and a cup of fresh chicken noodle soup as a side choice. This was another great and popular selection making for the perfect lunch.
