I went to the Taos Diner for breakfast and had the Huevos Rancheros. The red Chimayo chile was still superb.
For lunch we went to La Cueva, a small Mexican restaurant on my friend's recommendation. The Corn Chowder with rajas of Chile Poblano was delicous and the other food was all good.
We then headed to Eske's Pub next door and had the Green Chile Beer which was suprisingly spot on in their extraction of that fresh chile essence into the beer.
Cowgirl BBQ was tasty and had great live music for dinner. Only complaint was that the BBQ was served lukewarm.
For breakfast we went to the Pantry and back to Tecolote. I think I prefer the Pantry. The breakfast potatoes and green and red chile were much more memorable to that of Tecolote. My last breakfast was at Tia Sophia's which was just ok.
Had a quick dinner one evening at the Plaza Cafe of a Chile Bowl with Calabacitas and sopapilla. The chile sauces here were both very good and the squash was cooked perfectly.
My favorite Meal was at Tomasitas. The red and green stood out among the rest of the places I tried and it tasted like care was put into the food. Great sopapillas and a fantastic all female Mariachi band too.
