Vacation food: Santa Fe, NM Gabriel's April 30, 2012 and May 1, 2012
We ate at Gabriel's for lunch on Monday April 30, 2012 and we got take out at closing time on May 1, 2012. We decided to go to Durango, Colorado after lunch so we could ride the train from Durango, CO to Cascade Canyons on Tuesday. After our train ride, we went back to Santa Fe. I had quesadillas both times. Scott had Charro beans as a side dish to tacos. I admit that I had to use wikipedia to figure out what Charro beans were. Apparently, they are named after the Charro, a traditional Mexican horseman and are spiced pinto beans, like Cowboy beans. All of our food was great but the guacamole was the best I had ever eaten. It was made tableside with the usual ingredients: tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, onions, and garlic. They used a whisk and a large metal spoon to combine the ingredients.
