The Woodlands, Texas (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Américas Woodlands has added new on-the-go lunch offerings to its already popular menu – Bocado Lunch Trays, priced at $10 per person come with the choice of a house salad with cilantro dressing or a cup of the soup of the day, fresh fruit and melt-in-your-mouth Alfahores cookies. Served on a stylish — modern tray — the all-inclusive Bocado selections are flavor packed and provide quick, fresh options for hurried office workers and causal diners. Bocado Lunch Trays are available week-days from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
