Lunch opportunity in Truchas

On our way from Santa Fe to Taos, we were looking for a lunch possibility after having visited El Santuario de Chimayo.

Everything full in Chimayo, nothing in Cordova, but Trotter wrote that there should be a General Store in Truchas.

But reality is much better. next to the Tofoya's General Store lies the small but very nice Back Country Bar.

With two friendly locals at the bar, conversation started immediately.

We ordered 2 sandwiches that were very hygienically prepared (with plastic gloves) and were very tasteful.

We enjoyed food and the interesting conversations and were even offered a margarita 'on the house'.

Sublime experience in this small and remote village!

Thanks for the tip!! I'll check it out.

Another place I like, opposite direction, is El Paragua in Espanola. Good traditional hispanic meals. Its on the road from Chimayo right before you hit Espanola.
