Santa Fe absolutely exudes old southwest charm.
The adobe architecture, the hanging chiles everywhere, the sweet smell of burning sage that fills the air at night, the incredible restaurants, the tumbleweed that appropriately rolls down the street.... we have completely fallen in love with this charming little city.
I'd highly recommend a visit here to anyone.
I love that Santa Fe is filled with real cowboys and cowboy paraphernalia.
We just don't get these kind of characters in Montreal.
And now for the food....
That gloriously spicy, delicious food.
There are so many amazing restaurants in Santa Fe. We loved La Plazuela and Cafe Pasqual's (I even bought the cookbook).... both were outstanding!
I love how they serve honey and bread alongside the spicy chile dishes. I never knew that honey could cut the spice out when your mouth is on fire... but it does, and it really works!
Tomorrow our road trip ends, and we fly back to Montreal. It's been a fabulous experience (thanks for following along!), but it will be good to be home in Montreal again... I hear the weather has been milder and that spring is right around the corner now : )
