Cabana’s Lomo Saltado: A delicious steak experience
LomoSaltado. Translated it means jumping steak. In my opinion, it is the most delicious steak dish I have ever is kind of like fajitas but better? I don’t tasted. When they described it to me, they know how to describe it accurately. And it said it was like a stir fry where the oil is was beautifully presented. I never thought very hot and they cook it. I was imagining I would say that steak is gorgeous, but this some kind of stir fry with rice and beans. was just beautiful. No, this was more than that. This was tender, So after my last experience with Argentine juicy, perfectly seasoned steak, onions food, I got to take a trip to Cabana in and tomatoes on a bed of French fries. It Payson to try some Peruvian and Mexican food. I didn’t really have high expectations. There are honestly a lot of Mexican restaurants around and I am pretty familiar with the basics. But I was instantly impressed with Cabana’s food. For one thing, everything is fresh and homemade.
I’ve been to a few Mexican restaurants where I have seen the huge cans of red enchilada sauce. Not impressed. The enchilada sauce at Cabana is made by rehydrating dried chilies and mixing them with blend of spices. It is delicious and the color is a vibrant red, so even the enchilada sauce is pretty. I got the chicken enchilada and that red enchilada sauce was delicious and fresh.
After a while, I kind of noticed that everything I ate was pretty. Even the chimichanga came out looking like a light fluffy little pillow and was kind of adorable. After asking a few questions, I found out that the chef used to work at Park City Mountain Resort. Anyway, you don’t want to know about cute food, you need to know about the flavor. That adorable chimichanga was as delicious as it was adorable. Tender, seasoned, shredded beef and a perfect crust and served with rice and beans. It was one of the best chimichangas I have ever tasted and not super dense like some. It actually tasted kind of light because of the light crust, if a chimichanga can be described as light.
Another one of my favorite things (there were a lot of those) was the salsa bar. They have about 10 different salsas that are all freshly made. There was a salsa fresca, some tomatillo salsas, an amazing avocado-based salsa and just a lot of variety. All of them had a lot of flavor and complexity to them. They complimented the dishes as well as the hot delicious tortilla chips with refried beans (yummy) that Lomo Saltado. You could feed two people were brought out while we were waiting. with it. Maybe order some street tacos too
The street tacos are a bargain at a dollar so you can try some of those. Get yourself a piece. They are served on delicious corn a big glass of their horchata. Even if you tortillas with pork, chicken or steak. You don’t get the Lomo Saltado, all of their other can go to the salsa bar to customize as you dishes are delicious, fresh and authentic. like. Then, the mole. No, not guacamole. Plus, if you don’t feel like Mexican food, The chicken mole enchilada. Their mole they have some pretty amazing burgers sauce is sweet, nutty and has a lot of rich, and chicken sandwiches. So, whatever you complex flavors. It was delicious. They are craving and no matter how adventurous have a few mole dishes. you are feeling, they have something
And finally, the horchata. You go some delicious just for you. And they have lunch places and they serve a horchata that is specials for $6.99 with a drink so you can super sweet and tastes like it was made come try out a different dish each day of from syrup. This is the real thing. You can the week. They are open Monday through taste all the flavors and the rich cinnamon Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. sweetness, but not too sweet. Authentic and just divine.
OK. So here is your game plan. Go to Cabana, located at 75 S. Main Street in Payson. Get seated, get some chips and bean dip and make your choices from the salsa bar. Order yourself the
