Dining Around the Desert: Chula Artisan Eatery in La Quinta

Now-Open

Katherine Gonzalez has taken traditional recipes she learned from her mother and opened Chula Artisan Eatery in La Quinta. Everything is organic, made from scratch and light, healthy and delicious. Some of you may remember Katherine as the bar manager from Cork & Fork or teaching tamale making at Cooking with Class.

Michael and I attended a special, evening, music event a few weeks ago that was a real treat. Chula is normally open from 8AM to 3PM Tuesday through Sunday, and therefore I don’t get there as often as I’d like. My team however, gets there for lunch quite often and always has rave reviews.

They featured a special menu for the evening consisting of some of their most popular dishes.

We enjoyed Chula Fritters, made of roasted green chile, sweet corn, goat cheese, seasoned local greens, and a sweet red pepper aioli. We also had grilled shrimp, veggie and pulled pork tacos and a tasty chile relleno along with a nice bottle of wine.

The menu is served all day and includes breakfast items like Huevos Rancheros, Flapjacks, dessert such as Deep Dish Blueberry Bread Pudding, and lunch and dinner items from Cobb Salad, Grilled Street Corn, Fish Tacos to a Signature Salsa Flight.

We are looking forward to going back as soon as possible. Last year Katherine opened up in the evenings during the BNP tennis tournament and I’d expect she’ll do the same this year.
