Villa Creek - Paso Robles, CA

Yesterday was a great day! Hip Hip Roo Rey, aka "Scotty" won the NCHA Open class at the Pacific Coast Futurity with a really cool 221. My brother came to show yesterday and I got to hang out with him, we do not get to do that enough. It really was a fun day! Scott and I wanted to celebrate our day with a nice dinner out so he picked Villa Creek...

The market Soup of the day was a spicy Butternut Squash topped with cream and bacon. Heavenly! This was the best soup I have lately, if not ever! I would return this week for the soup alone!

Scott went for the Market Salad, Cucumber & Quinoa. It surprised me that he ordered it and described it as, "different but good"... That made me smile.

The Flat Iron Steak served over spoon bread and cilantro butter sounded totally amazing. I was happy Scott ordered it so I could get a bite. I loved the spoon bread, as it was almost like a green chile cornbread. It was very tasty. Not a loose as I thought it would be though, it was a knife and fork kind of bread.

Oh my, this bad boy was mine! The olive oil poached Alaskan halibut served with romesco and pea tendrils! The halibut was cooked to perfection, so delicate and moist! The risotto was slightly spicy and deliciously creamy. I loved every bite.

Our fantastic meal kept us in good spirits so we ordered dessert as well. A trio of steamed Chocolate Cake, Peanut Butter Mousse and Salted Caramel Ice Cream made up this wonderful masterpiece.  Scott focused in on the cake while I scooped up most of the ice cream. 

This meal was hands down one of my most favorite while staying in Paso Robles. I have had good meals here and most certainly bad ones as well so I am not leading you on... Last night, everything was just perfect. I love date nights!
