Verdict? Not recommended
Since the launch of this blog, we’ve been steadily working through the Cove Bar food menu. Some things we liked (Tri-Tip Sliders, Buffalo Wings); some things have been disappointing (Lobster Nachos). Today, we’re down to our last item: the Fajita Quesadilla Rolls.
Have we saved the best for last?
The dish arrives on a glossy white plate. (Side note: the plate was also warm, which displeased Bryce: “I always think ‘heat lamp'” he says.) The portion is good-sized: four individual rolls, each drizzled (drenched?) with red sauce and chipotle crema. There’s also a scoop of guac/tomato/onion as garnish.
We break out share plates, knives, and forks, and go to work.
This is bland. There’s no pop. No pizzazz. No hook. The parts don’t come together.
The grilled flour tortilla? Sturdy, but flavorless. Texture. Mouth feel. The chicken, peppers, and cheese? They blend together. Nothing stands out. Generic on the tongue. The sauce and crema? Just moisture. No flavor.
It’s hard to imagine this dish being anyone’s first choice when dining at the Cove. (Maybe it was our last-to-be-reviwed for a reason?)
UPDATE: As of June 2018, this dish is no longer available.
