I’ve sometimes had trouble writing dining columns. I’d squeeze my eyes shut and focus on wringing delicate flavors from my palate’s memory. I’d pour over notes, zoom in on my food photos for garnishing details. I’ve agonized over adjectives (“What shade of rich was it?”) and debated degrees of judgement (“Bad, but how bad?).
I set a new standard of difficulty today, however, because this Insider Eats is my last article as dining critic for The Gazette. After having the privilege to be the person behind the Groucho mask for more than a year (my first column ran Sept. 30, 2011), my life has taken a new course, northward to the city of Boulder.
The flavor of this move is easy for me to identify: bittersweet, the very definition of the word. But I refuse to mourn over what will soon be left behind, to let all my personal and professional food experiences in Colorado Springs be eclipsed by the sadness of their ending.

Anyone who has ever sat in one of the few seats at King's Chef at 110 E. Costilla St. has learned to love the large plates of food smothered in superhot green chili.

And if you like that green chili on your food, you can buy a bottle of it there to take home. It's a recipe Geiser has honed over time, and if you talk to him about it, you'll find out he's pretty picky about the chiles he uses.

Actually, 2 downtown locations, not OCC

My visits to the King are all late night at the Acacia corner location. Its probably the best late night spot to eat and rest after an evening of adult beverages.

Its diner food, tastes comforting and there's PLENTY of it. If the menu says something is hot (spicy) it is. My only disappointment there has been the French toast.

Expect it to be noisy. Service runs from D= to A-, depending on how busy they are. And they don't take credit cards!
