Zona Rosa Los Gatos Restaurant Review

: Warm, cozy and very tiny, this place requires reservations for lunch or dinner. Guacamole is a must, topped with Niman Ranch bacon and toasted pepitas. For dinner starters, go for panko-fried avocado wedges with chipotle cream dipping sauce, or carrot soup with meatballs. Tacos are distinctly flavorful with choices such as scallop, shrimp, salmon, carnitas, asparagus or scrambled eggs. Heartier lunch fare, such as carne asada y hongos, combines Niman Ranch skirt steak, shiitake mushrooms, green beans, chipotle crema and house-made tortillas, while vegetarians will delight in the blue corn enchilada, filled with sweet potato, poblano chile, caramelized onion, cheese and tomatillo almond pesto. Duck enchiladas, shrimp tempura tacos and pasilla chile rellenos are available on the dinner menu. Save room for the pumpkin fritters topped with caramel sauce or horchata ice cream from Marianne’s of Santa Cruz. Cocktails featuring an assortment of tequilas are available, along with beer and wine.
