Matt’s El Rancho

First of all, thank you all SO MUCH for your awesome comments and messages about the book! It’s such a scary process… it helps so much to know I have all of you rooting for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, though I’ll probably be posting lots of restaurant photos in the upcoming months, I won’t be able to post them all, and I won’t be able to tell you which ones will be in the book (not because it’s a secret, but because I won’t know myself until it’s all said and done, really). Still, I love sharing food photos with you guys, so I’ll try to keep doing that as much as I can! There will likely be much more photos than words from now on… my food words are being all used up. ๐Ÿ™‚

We tried Matt’s El Rancho again a few nights back. We had been there before a few years ago, but I don’t remember anything about the food because while we were there, this older couple sat at a table across from us, and were quite distracting… there was much groping (he grabbed her boob! in front of everyone!) and flirting and lewd conversation. I was pretty much scarred for life. But! Matt’s has been around for a bajillion years, and we decided to go back and try it again.

  1. I do believe that seeing anybody over the age of 50 displaying inappropriate sexual affection is rather disturbing. But eh, it didn’t ruin my appetite for these photos ๐Ÿ˜‰


  2. looks delish as always. it’s making me inspire to make my own tortilla chips. hmm, i wonder how hard that could be.

    sounds like it was a great return to good eats.

    • Shouldn’t be too hard… either with storebought corn tortillas, sliced and fried (or even oven baked after being brushed with oil), or whipping up some homemade tortillas and frying them. I looooove it when Mexican restaurants have fresh-fried tortilla chips!
