We’ve had a lot of visitors since our little Monkey was born. Sometimes even I get tired of cooking. Sometimes we need to simply go eat good food, drink good beer, and hang out at a place where a 10 month old’s squeaks aren’t going to be out of place. Our go-to haunt lately has been 10 Barrel. We’ve been to 10 Barrel probably 5 times now in the 10 months we’ve been in Boise, and aside from one service catastrophe when we had a group of 14, we’ve enjoyed ourselves.
I’ve sampled pizza, tacos, fish n’ chips, salads, gyro burger, app plates, and the BLT. I have to say, the winners are the BLT and the fish n’ chips. The BLT due to the amazing bread – heavenly sourdough with a real “sour” bite to it, but a soft, open grain. The fish n’ chips were keepers for taste (beer battered, not greasy, halibut) and were sourced from a little town in Alaska where I lived for a year.
10 Barrel is casual, not too expensive, and a great place for us to bring our little human and still feel like we’re hanging with adults. Gratuitous food photos shall now commence. Seriously, look at the damn BLT…with a fried egg no less!
