Bella’s Mexican Grill
Taos’ best dish – Blue Corn Huarache at Bella’s Mexican Grill.
Just off the plaza, Bella’s is a relatively new place in Taos. Don’t be fooled, the tradition of great food is long in the family that owns and operates Bella’s. Bella’s offers a punch pitcher of Margarita’s. The first thing that will grab you is the salsa. The salsa was different, but not special different, it offered something other that just a tomato, basil, chile, onion thing. It was original but not so original that it was not salsa. It was the start of an amazing dinner.
The table side guacamole, seemed exciting but for us, we were here to eat not be entertained. The menu at Bella’s is thorough and full of character. There are plenty of New Mexican traditions on the menu. We tried the tried and true stuffed sopapilla with carne deshebrada and both the green and red chile (Christmas). We also ventured into something new – Blue Corn Huarache. This plate was one of the best entrees ever.
The Blue Corn Huarache is the best plate we have experienced in Taos and is in the top 3 of anywhere we have traveled and eaten. It’s a simple but extravagant dish that combines New Mexican flavors perfectly. The Avocado Crema, Carne Adovada, and Blue Corn tortillas create a perfect New Mexican flavor that isn’t replicated anywhere. Nothing comes close to this. Everything on the plate comes from scratch local ingredients. Simple fresh ingredients, quality and created with love – this is a place and a dinner you won’t want to miss.
Bella’s has a great patio as well as inside dining. A plus is the Margarita offering. The service was outstanding despite having a full restaurant. The server explained the menu completely and with passion – come to find out he is the proprietor. It was like eating at someone’s home. Bella’s Mexican Grill is high among our recommendations.
