I am on holiday in the American Southwest, seeing beautiful sights and scenic vistas I may never see again. Chief among them is elk chili, spotted at the Bryce Canyon Lodge in Utah. Bryce Canyon is breathtaking and after a morning of hiking, a stop at the lodge was perfect for my noontime repast. When Beautiful Girlfriend asked what I was going to eat, I must have looked at her like she had three heads. “The elk chili, of course,” I responded. Was there really another choice?
It was a hearty chili, to be sure, but I was hoping for more of an exotic or gamey flavor. As far as taste goes, it could have been beef, if judging by flavor alone. All the same, it was very good and worth every penny of the $4 investment.
