Sometimes too much of a good thing can kill you.
I made it to Elko before sunset and it’s a good thing, because there were some bully looking clouds out there who meant business.
Now of all things that I thought I might find in Elko – it wasn’t a Basque Restaurant! But, apparently there’s a strong community of Basques who settled here.
The food was served in so shameful an amount…I had to look around to see if I was on hidden camera.
They start by bringing you a healthy serving of Porrusalda soup. It was just what I needed after the day’s ride….
…but then came the onslaught; neck of lamb, prepared authentically – baked until it fell off the bone, green beans and garlic, delicious french fries, two types of kidney beans, a plate of spaghetti, homemade bread and salad with homemade dressing — did I say there were two of us?
Then to top it off – and this was the real killer – an adorable young waitress recites to you their list of deserts, which is included in the price, and recommends her favorite; the bread pudding with whiskey sauce….which is my personal favorite! I had already eaten so much food that snot was running out my nose! But how could I resist?
