Best Chicken Marsala I've had!
I rarely rave about a restaurant in El Paso (other than H & H carwash of course) but the Chicken Marsala I had at Pasta Avanti off Mesa on the west side of El Paso last weekend was beyond heavenly, it was memorable! I am still upset that I ordered the 1/2 order! The sauce is thin, not thick like most Marsala Sauces I have had. I would call it subtle, flavorful, and most likely habit forming. The restaurant itself is rather pedestrian in décor and layout. I believe that the owner/chef worked at Bella Napoli for years and most of the offerings are probably similar to what she was taught on. I thought the service was A+. The small dinner salad was flavorful and fresh, but really nothing at all special. The star of the show was the main dish. I believe they serve a toasted buttered bun type bread with all meals, but fortunately we ordered another order. To say that I sopped up every drop is to say the truth! My dining partners had eggplant parmesan, a dish that I don't like in general since I don't like eggplant, but they did. None left on either plate. Go, try the Chicken Marsala and let me know what you think......am I right?
