As per usual, I got two tacos and a side. My first taco was the Brisket Taco, with sauteed onions, hot peppers, and BBQ mustard sauce, which was the remaining taco on the old menu that I had yet to try. As expected, it was very tasty.

My second taco was the Chicken Apple Taco. I had first read about this taco on Señorita Cibulka's blog when it was offered as a special item earlier in the fall. It sounded delicious, and I was disappointed that it was not available during my two previous visits to Smoke. But I was very excited to see that the Chicken Apple Taco has now made its way to the regular menu!

And I loved it! The combination of chicken, apple, bacon, cheddar cheese, and smoked jalapeno mayo was just fabulous. I think this is my favorite Smoke taco so far!
For my side, I couldn't help but get the Mac n Cheese with Bacon again because I had been thinking about it a lot pretty much since I had it on my last visit. The price has gone up somewhat since Smoke unveiled its new menu, but the portion is also bigger. I actually had to take most of this home.

Roasted garlic, shallots, mascarpone cheese, and sharp white cheddar
My dining companion, Señorita Cibulka, got the new Frito Pie. That's in addition to tacos, of course. I got a few bites and a photo. This is very tasty, and be warned: it is quite large and filling. Definitely an item more for sharing than for enjoying on your own. Unless you have a big appetite.

All in all, it was another highly satisfying meal at Smoke.
