Why you’ll love it
First off, a confession. The writer of this piece (Yearbook publisher Josh Johnson) ordered Pollo con Crema the first time he dined at Palenque in January 2004. He hasn’t swerved from this particular menu item for 15 years since. If you like creamy and cheesy, this is your order. Bonus tip: After filling your final tortilla with the chicken, take your rice for a swim through the remaining sauce. Delicioso!
Located on Trailhead Golf Course, Palenque is a perfect option for year-round dining with a view. Most of the seating opens to a wall of windows looking out over well-manicured fairways and the majestic mountains that embrace Liberty Lake. When the weather is nice, the patio dining pairs perfectly with an authentic Mexican meal
