Dining at Relleno's Cafe - Taos ( Best Chile Rellenos Ever )

The Chile Relleno is an ubiquitous culinary offering in the Southwest.  The true barometer for assessing the quality of a local eatery is by sampling such a regional specialty.  I can just barely count on my fingers how many rellenos that I stuffed in my face during our brief stay in Santa Fe, but only one was by far the best.  The organic and locally sourced food at Rellenos Cafe serves up the best Rellenos I have ever met.

It is only open for breakfast and lunch. The interior is very small and intimate, though they also have an outdoor patio.  The spot totally has the vibe of a dive, which contributes to the glory of the food.  We ordered a plate of rellenos and an order of tacos.  Both were superfluous archetypes of New Mexican perfection, but the rellenos were muse worthy.  Operas could be written about the fresh green chile sauce.  Perhaps a sonnet about the texture of the baked relleno shell would have been published by Shakespeare had he bothered with a time traveling visit.  The service was kind and impeccable,  even going so far as planning our next excursion outside of Taos.  If you find yourself in Taos for lunch, you have to eat here.
