One taste of the green chile sauce and my taste buds went numb. After that, nothing seemed very spicy. I asked the waiter, "Which sauce is hotter: red or green?" He responded that most folks think the red sauce is spicier. The green sauce was deep and hearty while the red sauce had a smoky flavor to it. Both were delicious and I was happy my friends recommended I order my meals "Christmas," so I could sample both flavors.

But before I seared my taste buds, there was the salad. Perhaps the best salad I've had. Maybe it's the closeness to the sun, a longer growing season, or even the local availability of fresh produce, but the lettuce was vibrant and crisp. Top it with blue cheese, walnuts, Kalamata olives, and a balsamic vinaigrette, and it's near perfection.
