Creamy Chicken and Green Chile Soup
They have a set menu that includes a variety of soups, fairly standard fare, and then they add three special soups made that day. Once of the choices today was a Green Chile Soup with onions and little black beans and a generous amount of creamy chicken, enough to have a piece of chicken in every spoonful it seemed to me. This was fairly mild on the tongue though it did steam up my glasses.
In addition I had a Nathan's hotdog on a nicely toasted bun with a small amount of butter on both sides. A judicious squirt of ketchup was the only condiment though onions and sauerkraut were offered. You can see that I was fairly hungry, always a good condiment, so I had a few bites before I took the picture.
This went well with the soup and very well with the serendipitous glass of Red Tree pinot noir—I thought I was having a pinot grigio—but my waitress thought differently, and that was a good thing too.
