Bobcat Bite

    Newer Older

    So our trip could probably end now... we made it to Bobcat Bite. The woman who owns the place was in house, and was every bit as pleasant as she is in all the TV specials. We ate on the covered porch, and boy howdy, was it tasty. We'll be stopping back for t-shirts.

      That place was great... I have to say, the food in New Mexico was hit or miss... a lot of disappointments along the way, but the Bobcat Bite and the Shed both stood out as the best food on the whole trip.

      Dang....I didn't get to The Shed. What type of food do they have and what was good? I went to a few good places. I really liked Cafe Castro...and Harry's Roadhouse.

      We stopped at the roadhouse, but we were so full we could only get coffee...

      Next time we go, we want to spend more time in Albuquerque. We only spent one night there, and wasted our dinner at the Standard. I wasn't too pleased with that place.

      What'd you have? What was wrong?

      We started with Calamari, which was actually pretty good...

      Then I had the bourbon butter burger. I thought it was a little heavy handed. Just incredibly sweet, with no background seasoning. I ordered medium rare, and it was very overcooked. The slaw was severely underseasoned, and was only passable after I drowned it in malt vinegar and added salt to it. My wife had fish and chips, which was also underseasoned and flavorless. I'll give them credit on concept, atmosphere, and some of the small touches, but when the two mains were so bland, it was just a disappointment.
