SHOW ME HOW
I just finished eating my oversized fry-bread thingy at Tocabe: An American Eatery and was definitely pleased with my meal. I'd written about Tocabe, the Native American, Chipotle-esque establishment yesterday, and was eager to try the place when it opened officially today.
Owner Ben Jacobs told me that despite the bad weather, there had been a steady stream of customers. He also said that during his soft opening last night, he sold all 425 fry-breads he had made. Not a shabby start, but also not surprising, considering the quality of his food. My oversized fry-bread was piled high with shredded beef, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, cheddar cheese, sour cream and spicy green chile. A side of ancho chile sauce completed a creation fit for the Native American gods (damn, I wish I could name one).
