The Food

To skip the following paragraphs of jibberish, click Menu,
or just wade through it & you'll get to the menu eventually.

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.

The moist, mantra-praised soil yields munificently its tasty gifts and YOU get to eat a salad. Pretty COOL, huh? The boys then go home and post pics of root vegetables on Instagram.

Winner of consecutive Key Lime Pie Dessert Smack-Downs for the last 18 years, these non-televised events were held here at The Rocking V, all 5 judges were from Key West. They were compelled to declare us Victors in the after-dinner-sweets category. Some of the judges have since been exiled from their island homes for not supporting the home team. One judge now lives in Colorado & he doesn’t care. Guess why?

And now for your Winter dining pleasure….. this clearly cosmic creation varies from day to day or week to week depending on Chefly whim. Ask your server for today’s catch. Here is one example: Saigon cinnamon, walnuts, raisins & lots of cream make our bread pudding fabulous. Your choice of caramel or house-made whiskey sauce. Whipped cream on top. We are NOT responsible for chemical reactions resulting from the mixture of whiskey and caramel sauces. You’ve been warned!

Chocoholic Mousse :: 8 VG~
If you were going to die by chocolate (and you probably would, had we left the antlers on, but we took the antlers off, despite the considerable time involved in the antler-removal process, because we’re all about digestive pleasure), this would be the way to do it, but please don't do it here HERE! French dark chocolate, sweetened with an angel's touch (they live in the basement) of maple syrup. We’ve made the portion smaller so you don’t buy the farm before you’ve paid the bill. That’s just good business.

Choco-pocalypse Now!!! 10 GF V :: 10 / 12.75 GF V~
Rich, decadent (sinful, unprincipled & immoral), astounding, alluring & enchanting, this flourless, French dark chocolate cake is a slice of HEAVEN (maybe it’s not so immoral) on your plate (and your friend’s plate). Served with a passion fruit sauce. We have genetically modified the sauce so the passion is time-released for your after-dinner pleasure once you have left the building (also for the protection of your fellow diners & because our lawyer said so). WARNING: If your passion lasts more than 4 hours, see your doctor! Add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream 2.75

Ice Cream :: 4.50 / 8 / 2.75 GF~
