No, I have not...they have two locations in Redding, the downtown and one on the other side of the river, where we live. Did you and Bob stop there to eat? Here is a link to a article our mystery food critic wrote. People seem to really love her reviews.http://anewscafe.com/2010/07/26/menuplease-at-los-gordos-offal-isnt-awful/
Tonight we are having an artichoke soup, cooked with onions, fresh spinach and fresh mint. Soup is pureed to a velvety smoothness. I'm adding a tablespoon of heavy cream just before serving, with a bit of lemon zest on top.
Side is a fresh orange, pineapple, strawberry salad, with a Greek yogurt, honey, lime zest and juice dressing. A crusty kalamata olive bread, grilled for some grill marks will finish off the meal.
