Gaby's Latin Flavors serves a split Bolivian-Mexican menu, but we suggest ordering the Bolivian food. (The owner-chef is Bolivian, so her native cooking is what she does best.) This casual restaurant is our go-to spot on the mountain for spicy, hearty food that warms you up from the inside out. We love the asado en olla, or spicy short beef ribs seasoned with ají and served with rice and penne pasta coated in a traditional Bolivian peanut sauce. Make sure to get their simple avocado salad on the side, too. If you're looking to share, split the fricase–a spicy pork and hominy soup with a zippy, tomato-y broth that will revive you after a day of not feeling your left buttcheek because snow got in your ski pants.
