Taco Cabo now served at base area
Steamboat Springs — Kent Hall is spicing up the après ski scene in Steamboat Springs.
The owner of Taco Cabo in west Steamboat now is cooking up specialty tacos, ceviche, burritos, bacon-wrapped jalapeños and perfectly-layered chicken nachos at the Double Diamonds Bar near the base of Steamboat Ski Area.
The bar gets a brand-new food menu to brag about daily from 2 to 10 p.m., and Hall gets a new kitchen to experiment in.
Double Diamonds owner Scott Agnew said the new partnership with Hall is a “major boon” for the bar that is right across the street from the Gondola Transit Center.
The dishes have all the flavor you’d expect from Taco Cabo, but with some new twists and a more sophisticated presentation.
Don’t worry though, it’s still food you can eat with your fingers.
There will be a chalkboard menu, and items will rotate every few days. Draft beer and Colorado bourbon also can be paired with a dish.
On Wednesday, Hall cooked up jalapeños and shrimp wrapped in bacon that he calls Rattlesnake Bites, chicken nachos with cheese sauce made from scratch, and higher-end tacos featuring a variety of meats ranging from carne asada to fish.
Hall, who introduced Steamboat to the “421 Burrito” a few years ago, even makes his own tortillas.
“It allows me to be creative,” Hall said about the recent expansion up to the mountain. “It’s really exciting for me to be able to do this.”
A dessert Hall dreamed up Tuesday became a reality Wednesday.
He doesn’t yet have a name for the mix of sauteed apples, Nutella, caramel and brown sugar inside a thin tortilla, but its deliciousness has been confirmed.
