The key to all great cooking is fire.
Knowing what to set on fire and for how long is the mystery.
Fortunately for you (and us), our chefs have figured it all out.
It's slow food. Real food. Carefully prepared by real human hands, served by happy people, also with real human hands, in a warm and inviting space.
Simple. We use the freshest ingredients available to prepare dishes that are a little different from the food you get at other places along the road.
Plenty of pasta, fish, chicken, beef & lots of greens. Spring mix, romaine, carrots, cukes, broccoli, red onions, yellow squash, roma tomatoes, mushrooms. No iceberg. Vegan? No prob. We can do that & any salad without cheese or meat. All our soups are made in house from scratch.
Scratch is a valuable ingredient in slow food. Most of our fish comes whole & on ice. We cut it ourselves. We try to get as much local produce as we can & we buy many of our herbs locally.
The cream for each dessert is whipped by hand & the mint & pansies come from our garden (or random neighborhood gardens, if we run out). Our food may take a little longer to prepare, but it's real food. Savor the taste. It's good food. Simple.
ALL MENU PRICES are highly unstable and vary from moment to moment depending on wind speed, whim & the price of chocolate, as well as certain, little-known grain futures. The values listed below are for reference only. In the event that you actually make it to The Big K and find us, your menu may be encrypted for our amusement.

Almond Crusted Chicken Marsala :: 18~
Grilled, almond and herb-crusted chicken breast topped with a mushroom-cream Marsala sauce. Served with Chef Dan's vegetables and his own super secret, eyes only, marvelous blend of wild, untrainable rice and grains.

Spicy, marinated chicken served over linguini with sweet basil marinara and garnished with tomato concasse
Southwest Cornmeal Crusted Trout :: 22~
Seared mountain ruby red trout, crusted with yellow cornmeal and pumpkin seeds. Topped with a green chile and tomatillo salsa.

Also known as dolphin fish. NOT Flipper! Flipper was a mammal, not a fish. But we digress. A 6 ounce wild caught Mahi Mahi fillet, grilled, with a spicy Thai orange glaze, then topped with fresh mango salsa. Served with Chef Dan's veggies and coconut jasmine rice. We are unsure as to the exact relationship between these Chef Dan's veggies and those living with the salmon.
Southwestern Fish Tacos :: 22~
And you thought fish only lived in the oceans. Well, for your information: we have opened a school in southern Utah and we're having to turn away applicants. Only the best, the brightest and most colorful are accepted. Plus the very tastiest, so there's that. Fish of the day wrapped in a flour tortilla, topped with cabbage, pico de gallo, pepper jack cheese and drizzled with avocado citrus creme fraiche. Smoky black bean salad and jicama slaw on the side. GF
Rocking V Shrimp :: 22~
Yes, we know this is not a vegetarian dish & strictly speaking it should be on the previous menu but we couldn't fit it on the other page so let's call it a Vegaquarium dish and get on with our lives. Four jumbo shrimp sauteed with pine nuts and peas in a light garlic white wine Parmesan cream and served over linguini. If we served them under linguini, we'd have to answer too many questions.
Homer's Dream Pork Chop :: 24~
Many have mocked Mr. Simpson's interest in the pastry sciences but nobody is laughing at the yellow-headed one's love of porcine delights. This is what the siege of Troy (or perhaps Springfield?) was all about. Topped with chipotle mustard, this mouth-watering 10 ounce, garlic and herb rubbed beauty melts in your pie-hole(Doh! That's later, the pie). That's what it says in the Iliad if you read it carefully. Chef's vegetables and garlic-sour cream Yukon gold mashers complete this entree. Homer, Gomer, whatever your name....... Oooooooooo, pork chopppppps.....Goood.
Filet Mignon :: 29~

An Indian style stew of chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery and zucchini. Slow cooked with curry, cloves, ginger, coriander, cumin, turmeric and lemon juice. Served over coconut jasmine rice. Add: tofu $2 chicken $4.50 shrimps $6. YES it IS shrimps, because shrimp would only be 1 and there are more than 1. So there! GF & VG

Deep Dish Enchilada :: 18~
Back by popular demand and mild rioting, one of our most requested and deepest dishes. The return of this entree to our menu required 12 brokered treaties involving 17 countries and territories, as well as several rounds of blackjack and the ultimate annexation of the little-known principality of Is-Dan-A-Stan?. What could be better than roasted peppers, grilled zucchini, squash, purple onions and green chiles stacked as high as the North Rim with corn tortillas and baked w/ pepper jack cheese? We'll tell ya what: something topped w/ delicious tomatillo salsa, pico de gallo and cilantro lime sauce. Oooo baby, this is GREAT! BLM scientists & researchers have still not been able to accurately measure the true depth of this dish. Despite budget cuts, field studies continue, thanks to the tireless efforts of numerous dogged men & women of science. NPR's "Science Friday" should do a story on this thang. Add: chicken $4.50 or shrimp $6 GF & V
Tomato Pesto Couscous Cakes :: 16~
Our chef, Chef Dan or someone wearing a big white hat back there in the kitchen, combines fresh herbs, tomatoes, Asiago cheese, spices, vegetables and couscous are hand-formed into cakes, grilled and served on a sleep number bed of sauteed vegetables with greens. Whew! An outside contractor is then brought in at government expense to top the creation with creamy basil & roasted pine nuts. The outside contractor has offices in Houston and throughout the Middle East. V

Key Lime Pie :: 7.95~
Tart and sweet, velvety cool, with a graham crust. Topped with freshly whipped cream. Perfect. Even if you're from Florida, this is THE BEST Key Lime pie you've EVER eaten! Just ask Ken Mitchell & his Key Westies. They had to grovel before us after losing the Sept 21, 2007 Sunshine State Dessert Smackdown. This non-televised event was held at The Rocking V & the Florida 5 were compelled to admit (On Camera!) that Vicky's Key Lime Pie is THE Best. It may be winter but this is a warm reminder of summer. Ken is now living in seclusion on "Oooo, my Florida key lime pie isn't up to much" Key, southwest of Bimini.
Creme Brulee :: 7.95~
Oooooooooooooo! YUM! The perfect recipe, graciously given to us by French chef Georges LaForge. Fresh cream, eggs, sugar and pure vanilla swirled together, then baked and cooled. Before serving, we sprinkle with sugar and torch for that golden crust. Delicieux! GF
Chocolate Silk Pie :: 7.95~
The chocoholic train is leaving the station! We start with an almond-graham crust, then fill with a smooth and "silky" whipped Belgian bittersweet chocolate mousse. The pie is topped with a thin layer of chocolate and served with freshly whipped cream. Banned by Chocoholics Anonymous, but a Rocking V Cafe favorite.
Bread Pudding :: 7.95~
It was requested by a frequent diner a few years back. It became so popular we added it to the permanent dessert menu. Saigon cinnamon, whole nuts, raisins and lots of cream make our bread pudding fabulous. Your choice of caramel or house-made whiskey sauce. Whipped cream on the side. We are NOT responsible for chemical reactions resulting from the mixture of whiskey and caramel sauces. You pays your money, you takes your chances.
Chocoholic Mousse :: 5.95~
If you were going to die by chocolate, this would be the way to do it. Bittersweet chocolate, sweetened with a touch of maple syrup. AND…it’s dairy-free. We’ve made the portion smaller so you don’t buy the farm before you’ve paid the bill. GF & VG
Hot Fudge Molten Lava Cake w/ Vanilla Bean Ice Cream :: 9.95~
Warm, gooey chocolate cake served next to vanilla ice cream. You may have to go into a 12 step program after this one. That is, if you're still alive..... the center of the cake is actually filled with REAL lava. It is HELL keeping that volcano going in the basement year round. But nothing is too good for our customers. ROCK ON!
