The fact that Nevada is home to some of the best Basque food in the country is one of our best-kept secrets.

Hiding out in Carson City is one of the best little Basque eateries in Nevada. It's so good that people will gladly go out of their way just to eat here—and especially to get a taste of their famous homemade chorizo.
There's something extremely humble about Villa Basque Cafe. The interior is simple and plain with a small dining area. However, you can rest assured that the food will speak for itself.
First of all, a giant case inside of the cafe is filled with their glorious handmade chorizo. Chorizo is a traditional Basque food that is made of pork and flavored with spices such as garlic and paprika. The chorizo sold here is made from a family recipe that goes back for decades.
Chorizo is great in all kinds of dishes. You can go the traditional route and order it in sandwich form which comes with pimientos and peppers. The "California Style" comes with grilled onions, avocado, cheese, and chiles.
And you can never go wrong with ordering a big steaming dish of paella! Paella is composed of rice, chicken, chorizo, clams, ham, shrimp, and calamaries. It's definitely a must-try if you're new to Basque food.
Breakfast is definitely a popular option at Villa Basque Cafe. After all, there's no better way to start your day than with a few links of their famous chorizo. They serve both classic American and Spanish breakfast dishes.
However, it's their omelettes that are probably their most popular breakfast item. Just look at the size of this thing! You better bring your appetite because you're definitely going to need it.
Don't forget to order one of their fresh-squeeze specialty juices and lemonades to wash it all down. Whether you're a longtime fan of Basque food or just being introduced to it, Villa Basque Cafe is bound to satisfy.
There's so much more to this place than meets the eye! You'll find it at 730 Basque Way, Carson City, NV 89706.
