I took my wife to dinner at Rooster Creek Tavern in the Village of Arroyo Grande. We’ve been wanting to try but figured we wait until the crowds thinned down some and they worked out the snags of being a new restaurant.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the menu was they had a Cheese Fondue appetizer in a bread bowl. Both my wife and I were hoping a Central Coast restaurant would serve a cheese fondue so this was something we were definitely was going to order. When it came, we dipped our bread pieces into it and the first thing that I thought was “this is clam chowder in a bread bowl, minus the clams”. I didn’t say anything to my wife but after 5 minutes eating it, she said “this tastes like clam chowder”. I don’t know if it had any cheese in it and for $10, it was a huge disappointment.
So I guess we’re still searching for fondue in SLO County….
