After a half-dozen good meals in last few years of visiting Taos, we were disappointed with our most recent outing:
The Angel Hair Gargonzola with chicken dish was a bland noodle island atop a watery/milky lake in the serving dish that each of us ordered Chef Rene did not supervise this dish, as it was prepared by another.
But....the dish was largely tasteless because the gorgonzola flavor was diluted with too much cream. Or it hadn't been reduced enough to bring back the flavor. And, the chicken was hard to find in the "white noodle lake".. I had to add a half-teaspoon of black pepper to try to get some flavor back in to this dish. Should have sent it back for rework, but we were rushing to make the balloon glow that night at the balloon festival.
As an aside, Angel Hair is a poor choice for such a white sauce dish, as the noodles don't have enough surface area, nor body, to hold the sauce - especially when it is overly watery. A more robust noodle would help, but not with this poorly prepared serving we had.
Too bad; The Moz/Tomato salad was still good, thankfully. But we'll be looking for another spot for next visit. This old standby of ours just isn't..
