Pacific North West Travel Notes 2014 - part 11 (Boise, Idaho)

We started our day 16 with breakfast in local eatery called Y-Inn café. It was very good especially their bacon. We liked it so much that we even went to a local supermarket and bought this bacon to take home (thanks God someone invented coolers!). Our drive to Boise was uneventful. We were driving mostly along Salmon River. Scenery was quite beautiful especially part of the trip closer to Montana but I guess we were getting saturated with beautiful scenery. As our good friend Vlad told after traveling through Italy for a while “I got to the point when I felt that if I saw another Madonna with Child, I could vomit”. We were not at this point yet but were slowly getting there.

At one of the stops we met friendly pug named Rufus. Rufus was shaved for summer and looked very quite. I think it was great idea to remove pug’s super thick fur in hot summer areas.

Near Boise we visited Shoshona Falls that were called Niagara of the West. It was very impressive waterfall but it was very hot - in low 90th.

In Boise we went to dinner to a restaurant called Barbacoa. I picked it from Tripadvisor and was not sorry. Visiting this restaurant was very interesting experience. It started with a building itself which looked intriguing even from the outside. Inside it was a bonanza of various styles of décor strangely working together very well. The overall impression was like you were in some kind of a theatre with ongoing show. It also had nice view of small lake.

The highlight of the décor was the lady’s restroom – hot pink doors, crystal chandeliers and the best part – pink onyx marble tiled walls!

The restaurant was huge and packed (on Monday!) yet service was very prompt and knowledgeable. Presentation was very creative and dishes were tasty. We had guacamole that was made to order at our table and fried calamari for appetizers. For main entrée Alex had Idaho trout and I had BBQ ribs. Trout was great but ribs were a mistake. They were very soft but not particularly juicy but the main problem was their size. There was enough meat to feed three people. Seriously, I was barely able to eat about 1/3 of it! I should’ve taken something smaller.
