Chile Con Queso Blanco
One of my favorite items on the Escalante's Menu is their Tortilla Soup (cup = $5, bowl = $7). Fresh. Light. Packed full of big chunks of carrots, squash, celery, chicken. Fresh avocados on top. Light broth. Melty-cheesy Jack cheese. Mmmmmm Mmmmmm! It's an especially nice alternative to heavy TexMex....or right after one devours the entire bowl of Queso (you think I'd do that?).
One other menu item that I think is worth noting is their Flan ($6). While ordinarily, I'm not a huge flan fan (much preferring something wrapped, dipped, and stuffed with chocolate), their flan is a creamy and dense custard with a delectable caramel syrup. This dish is an extremely satisfying way to end a meal.
I love all of the Escalante's locations. They all hold true to the great service, fresh ingredients, and savory margaritas. However, my favorite location is the one in Highland Village. The eatery is light and bright, the energy level is high, and the interior design is Modern Mexican. I'm happy being there!
