I have eaten at Epi's at least fifteen times which is significant because I live 1,600 miles away. Her food is amazing. There is nothing like Epi's beans. I always ask for a second bowlful. I have the recipe from their book and am always delighted that theirs taste better than the ones I try to make. Every entrée I have ever tried is wonderful from tongue to squid in ink sauce to meatballs. My favorite desert is the bread pudding which always comes with multiple spoons because it is enormous. For all the raving about the food, by far the best thing about Epi's is Chris and the rest of the staff. From the moment you walk into the restaurant, a small remodeled house on a busy street in Meridian, ID, you know that you are a member of a big, Basque family. The food is authentic because many of the staff have worked, lived and eaten in the Basque Country of Northern Spain.
