There are some restaurants you walk into and you know you're in for something special. Rocking Horse is one of them. The room is set off by three rows of cylindrical lights that fall from the ceiling above the bar. A wall of irridescent blue tiles separates the bar from the main dining room. And the brightly colored walls are covered with pictures of oversized flowers. But now to the best part - the food. I tried the pulled pork sandwich ($8.95) thinking it was going to be your standard Mexican fare. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. It was a work of art. Fresh pork topped with avacado with a layer of cheese baked onto the outer surface of the bread. It was one of those rare moments when with every bite I was praying the meal would never end. I'm told the grilled chile-crusted salmon ($17.95) is also "to die for." The food is all made to order and may take a while when the kitchen is busy. But's it's definitely worth it
