Restaurant reviews: Tapas to tacos in the heart of Provo

Dining out » Black Sheep Café deserves the hype and Blue Pablano shows potential.

< Previous Page

The carnitas burrito ($8.50) was the best of the pork products offered but the thin enchilada sauce and smattering of onions and drizzle of crema didn’t really equate to good value for the $2 upcharge for enchilada-style.

A chicken quesadilla ($6) was much more successful with juicy and well-seasoned chicken plentifully distributed between the cheese and tortilla layers. The four wedges are dressed with shredded cheese, crema, diced tomatoes, fresh cilantro and green salsa for dipping.

Until the actual pablano makes its official appearance on the menu, I won’t make another trip down to Utah County to dine there but in the meantime I’ll give their taco cart set up on Friday and Saturday nights at Salt Lake’s Granary Row another chance.
