Was in Tahoe this weekend. Truckee eats. Ate at 50/50 Brewing Company. Not bad. Good burgers and decent salads. Very fun convivial atmosphere.
Went to Cottonwood next night. What a rip. Had the Tri-tip steak. Tiny portion, no veggies, and an infintismal dollop of (/)horseradish(?) mashed potato. One son had curry shrimp. A gloppy over-spiced $27 mess. My other son had NY strip. Nothing special except the $31 price.
Went to Tacos Jaliscos on Sunday. Loved it. Good tacos, excellent burrito. Liked the atmosphere and the prices.
I shoulda gone to Reno for Basque food but I didn't want to take the time. Mistake as it woulda been worth it.
Anything decent in Truckee?
We tried Moody’s when the big Sunday night snowstorm hit. For starters, the “Charcuterie of House Made Pate and Salami” (6 meats) was about enough for a meal for two. I got a Langhe Nebbiolo especially for the “Moody’s Big Ass Pork Platter” (4 different kinds of pork preparations) my wife ordered. It was an apt description because we couldn’t finish all the food we got and had to skip dessert.
