West Glacier MT: West Glacier Restaurant

West Glacier is just outside of the west entrance to Glacier National Park. It does have a post office but the term "town" gives it a lot of credit---what you see here is most of what you get. There are two other restaurants on the other side of the tracks but I ate a lot of meals here. Luckily, the food is good and the service is friendly.

The veggie burger didn’t hold together well but very flavorful and hearty. Good cheese on top.

The hippie Scramble omelet was similarly hearty. The potatoes had an excellent crust.

One evening, I stopped in for chili. It was bean-oriented, nice rich sauce, just a bit of a kick. Good stuff.

Serious Spices

During our Bengali breakfast session, Milu showed me her spice tray. All the spices here are whole and unground, allowing them to stay fresh for longer. She explained that this type of tray is standard issue in Indian kitchens. But the tray only her first line of defense in her never-ending war against boring food. This is her pantry. You can see the vast array of spices and flavorings that make up the core of her stock. I can't think of a better illustration of the palate of flavors that make up Indian cuisine.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Tucker: Monterrey

This restaurant, part of a regional chain, has been in the neighborhood for untold ages. Its feel is cozy and welcoming. The staff is very nice. I ordered an interesting dish, pork and cheese on a sizzling platter. The cheese makes this a very different dish from fajitas. The cheese browns and crisps up, putting a real spin on the pork. The browned cheese complements the sweetness of the pork to make a very umami dish.
