I know I’m tardy to the party again, but I’ve been feeling under the weather guys. It has seriously been the cold that just won’t quit. I’m not happy about it, but I am surviving it. I wanted to finish up the posts about our road trip today, and I am here to do just that.
Our last night away from home was spent at the Grand Canyon Village. We decided for one last dinner hurrah at The Arizona Room. The view was perfect with picture windows looking out into the Grand Canyon while you ate. The waiter was knowledgable and friendly. It was all set to be the perfect evening.
Now you may remember that I already had the best black bean soup I’d ever tasted earlier on this trip, but I couldn’t resist trying another bowl. It was a disappointment in comparison. I’ll admit though that it was not a bad bowl of black bean soup. It was just what you would expect actually. It was thick and creamy. It was spicy. The crema cut it slightly, but I’d say not enough. Overall this dish was tasty, but it was just lacking that little extra to put it over the top.
This was a complete disappointment. The green beans had no flavor. They had definitely not been salted while being cooked. I am the type of person who doesn’t salt at the table. For one, I don’t need so much salt right now. Secondly, I have always felt like things should be flavored while cooking, because it actually soaks in better and elevates the taste.
The chicken was spicy, but it wasn’t anything to write home to mom about. It was just good. The best thing about this dinner was the perfectly cooked rice. Overall, I’d give this dish a B. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great.
Have you been to the Grand Canyon? Where did you eat? Was it delicious?
