If you’re a NYC foodie like myself and my friends, then you know that our city does justice to authentic Mexican food. Whether it’s from a street vendor or dine-in restaurant, New York does not disappoint. One Mexican gem we have is El Patrón with several locations in Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. Even during quarantine, their food is in high demand because it is just. That. Good.
I was one of those customers that added to their high demand this week. I ordered chimichangas and enchiladas rancheras for takeout. A chimichanga is like a fried burrito stuffed with chicken, cheese, onions and peppers. El Patrón doctors theirs up with a side of guac and sour cream. Talk about heavenly!
I also had to get something saucy and their enchiladas rancheras hit the spot. Enchiladas rancheras are corn tortillas filled with chicken and doused in tomato sauce and sour cream. I got a side of pillowy Mexican rice and yummy red beans. All cravings were satisfied this week. 🙌🏼
Curious About Dining In?
El Patrón offers an authentic dine-in experience with on-themed decorations, music, drinks and food of course. They celebrate the Mexican heritage, the restaurant embracing bright colors that resemble homes in Mexico. The music makes you want to dance in your seat from some help of their frozen margaritas- made with Patron of course. El Patrón’s dishes offer a wide variety of juicy meat, pescatarian and vegetarian options. You can check out the full menu here.
With NYC entering phase 2 of reopening on June 22nd, you may be fortunate enough to get the full experience. You need to check out El Patrón for a lively Mexican feast!
