Free day in Boise!

Ok, let me start by saying that I have really enjoyed eating in Boise. Friday evening we had the chance to go to Bar Gernika for traditional Basque food. Holy Smokes, this place was Fantastic.

I had the Kalimotxo, which is a mix of coke and red wine. I ate the wonderful croguetas and the lamb wrap with fresh cut French Fries. This was a lot of food, but worth every calorie!

Hint is order the Croquetas as an appetizer and then get the half sandwich portion with the fries! Learned this after I stuffed myself!

They also have Beef Tongue Saturdays if you are interested!

Today, we ate at the Bittercreek Alehouse, which was also delicious! I had a chicken sandwich with pesto, mozzarella cheese, and balsamic tomatoes with french fries.

Some of my friends had the squash curry soup and said it was to die for! They also have a sweet potato/black bean burger. I did try the sweet potato ,black bean quesadilla appetizer, which was really tasty.

For Dinner we had Table Rock Brewery, but it was my least favorite meal. The corn dogs were suppose to be gluten free, but the taste went with them. I should have played it safe, but I was going out on a limb.

I am not a beer lover, but I think the beer sampler was pretty cool here. So, if you are in the mood to drink beer, this might be a good option for you, just eat before coming for the beer.

We didn't have time for Goldie's for breakfast, but we grabbed a cinnamon roll at Goldie's corner. Not as impressed as everyone made it sound like, but maybe the full breakfast was all that! I will have to save it for next time. 

In all, I had a great time in Boise, and I have to say I would go back. We didn't get to see or do half as much as it has to offer. Our extent of touring was food and a little shopping. There is so much more outdoor activity and fun to be had in Boise.
