Roaring Fork

I’m sitting in my car watching Bridget Jones’s Diary on my iPad waiting for the buzz from my last margarita to wear off. I just finished enjoying a nice happy hour at The Roaring Fork.

I’m writing this post to praise the Green Chile Pork Stew, which is, in a word, delightful. Spicy and savory, it is served with flour tortillas and I eat it as fajitas. Yum! Happy Hour price is $6 (normally $10) and a portion fills all six tortillas that are served with it.

As the stew was shared among three people, I also had the Tortilla Soup. I was happy to discover that they serve it by pouring the base of the soup over the chicken, avocado, etc. at the table. The soup was also delicious, though I was a flight of three 2-ounce margaritas in at that point, plus a portion of a full-size one, so my opinion could have been slightly suspect. 🙂 Once I have a slight buzz, I think I tend to really enjoy food.

    Once I start drinking, I don’t even want to eat. I think once the alcohol hits me, it’s just empty calories but my stomach is fooled.
    However, I really enjoy food sober, which I am, usually, so that’s good.
    The Green Chili Pork Stew sounds awesome!

    Love green chiles…

    The next time you’re in NYC if we can go East Side we should hit The Volstead and have their chicken fajitas ($15 but SO delicious).

    When I get to drinking, at some point, I do need food. I’ve pretty much determined that if I want to drink a regular amount of booze, I need to have eaten a decent meal first.

    Sometimes I can start with one drink, like a margarita, then eat mixed with drinks throughout the night. It all depends on how good the food is and how strong the drinks are.

    Sounds like you had both: good food and drink.
