We stayed at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort and our first night consisted of a trip to the Flying V Bar & Grill. We sat in the outdoor seating area overlooking the pond right around the time for a beautiful sunset. It felt pretty upscale, but there were other families there with kids younger than our 5 and 9 year old.
The kids menu included dinner and a drink. All the child entrees balanced out to about $7.50, but the portions were huge and worth it. My 5 and 9 year old could have split their entrees and been happy, especially after we ordered the Tableside Guacamole appetizer. The mobile cart rolled over to our spot and made fresh, sweet guacamole to our liking. The chips were light and airy, as tortillas should be for dipping into the homemade avocado dip. Instead of a typical bread basket, our meal was prefaced with a homemade cornbread that tasted outstanding and came served in an authentic-looking cast iron pan.
The kids ordered from the kids menu which offered up 9 options, plus pureed fruit or veggies for babies. There were 5 dessert items for an extra charge. The kids picked an out-of-this-world brownie. My husband had a buffalo burger and the best sweet potato fries he's ever had. I was really happy with my carnitas street tacos. My husband and I shared the creme brulee topped with berries.
We were celebrating our vacation and that first night was all about the food!
