Matt’s El Rancho

August 1, 2010

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. 🙂 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. 🙂

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.

Crapton of veggies.

So I really like this post on Zen Habits about…

Justin calls this a hot hot dog. That is all.

    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 😉

    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!

    Wow, this is the kind of Mexican food I’ve been craving for a while now. Would love a few martinis, too…
