Gabbi's Holiday Quick Stop 2007

Here are some pictures of my lunch at Gabbi's earlier today:

Still no sign


They are getting into the Christmas/holiday theme:



One item they have for the holidays is the chile en nogada, a chili pepper stuffed with ground beef and other fillings and topped with an almond sauce and pomegranate seeds. Co-owner Ed Patrick explained that this dish was created by Mexican nuns in 1813 to celebrate Mexico's independence from Spain. It purposely incorporates food items that are red, white, and green to match the flag of Mexico. Of course the color scheme also goes well with Christmas so it doubles as a holiday dish.


And I wanted to try their apple cobbler that I've mentioned before but had a flan craving (hey, it happens) this time:

MMMMM, chile en nogada is my favorite! All these "old favorite" restaurants with holiday specials that I just have to try, and here I am trying to try new restaurants instead... Ah well. I'm just going to have to learn to make chile en nogada myself.
