Navajo Tacos

 

The best Navajo Tacos in a hidden treasure. OASIS is a family restaurant with great food and great service. We ordered the Navajo tacos, among other things. The desserts are the best part. Grandma’s recipe has been around for 70 years (possibly) and it shows in every bite!

We had to try the cherry pie and the pecan pie. Here are some pics! Enjoy!

We had a great day at Mesa Verde and this place was the perfect complement after a day of sledding and hiking the majestic sand dunes.

Southwest Dining – Pagosa Baking Company – 1 of 4

What better way to experience the southwest than through dining? We went through Pagosa Springs, Colorado for the summer and loved the views, the relaxed atmosphere and the food. We had to stop at Pagosa Baking Company which has been around Pagosa for some time. If you’re looking for a relaxed lunch break with light, delicious menu options, this is the place. The decor is fabulous! We loved everything we ordered, but my favorite was the carrot cupcake (above photo)! We had to get extra forks because once it made it to our table, everyone had to have a bite! 🙂

The look of the place is absolutely charming with a cozy home entrance. It’s also conveniently placed in the heart of Pagosa Springs downtown.

We ordered a chicken Waldorf salad, a BLT Panini (both from the daily special) and a veggie focaccia pocket. Yum! All of them were so worth the stop! They offer either a side of salad with lentils or quinoa or kettle chips! Great options. Here are some pics..

This is what I ordered and loved.. Chicken Waldorf Salad

The paninis were great! I tried them all, risking some extra calories. In the end, I was not so worried as their ingredients were all fresh with perfectly balanced seasoning.
