La Cocina de Luz: Telluride, CO

Wowza. First official post of 2015, I’m feeling excited. Are you feeling excited? Let’s get this show on the road.

So let’s talk Mexican food. Specifically, this pretty party La Cocina de Luz located in my top 3 favorite places in the world (ranked with Disney World and Rosemary Beach in no particular order). La Cocina, as the locals affectionately call it, is the so-called local haunch of town, and I know this because I went with some said locals.

Again with the locals, they rave about this place. They love it. They eat it up. I personally favorited the underground Mexicano restaurant located further up the street, but it closed down, so I’ve now converted happily to La Cocina. The extra cool thing about La Cocina is that a ton of their food is organic, and they really really cater to allergies and intolerances.

Which, hey, last time I checked you and I totally fall into that category.

La Cocina de Luz Menu

I have tried a lot of different menu items here, but I went for the tostadas this time.

Basically a flat crispy corn tortilla topped with roasted chicken, guacamole, lettuce, and then a side of their 95% organic rice and beans. That’s what’s up.

It’s my favorite thing I’ve had on the menu, and like I said before, though it’s not my favorite favorite restaurant in the hip cool town of Tride, it’s extremely accommodating and an enjoyable meal. It gets really busy too so make sure to get there a little earlier or later than usual to catch a table. And kids are totally welcomed and encouraged in La Cocina too, of course!

It’s an order and sit down kind of restaurant with a top of the notch salsa bar. I take my salsa eating very seriously. [Read more…]
