Start off with a shrub cocktail, such as the strawberry basil rum shrub, made with their own homemade fruit vinegar. Next, try the surprisingly decadent crispy kale and the tender sweet potato and asparagus tacos with a luxurious cilantro cream. Skip the dry risotto and head right for any dish that comes with Colgan’s specialty: homemade pasta. The rich, sweet and saucy chicken marsala, served over tagliatelle is an excellent example. As you wrap up your meal in the quiet, homey dining room, don’t be tempted to leave before tasting the strawberry chocolate truffle cake. And if you feel like a nightcap, Abilene has its own homemade limoncello to put you over the edge…or straight into bed.
and so has Drink Up and Get Happy.
While the setting may be relaxed they don’t slouch one the food or drink offerings. The day we visited the $5 appetizers included BBQ pork sliders, veggie nachos, poutine and sweet potato and asparagus tacos. Portions are generous so a great way to experience a few of these is to share with friends. Everything was exemplary!
