One Dish Quickie at El Tepeyac

There’s just something I love about fried eggs, especially when it’s fried to the point that the white edges are browned and yet the yolk still retains some of its liquid gold. Sometimes a fried egg sandwich on lightly buttered toasted bread is all I need for a satisfying meal. Why all the egg talk? When it comes to dining out, I always seem to drawn to dishes that feature fried eggs, whether it’s fried quail eggs on scallops or fried eggs on pizza.

So when I was out with friends to dinner at El Tepeyac, a restaurant icon in East LA, I had a hard time deciding what to order. Finally, something finally caught my attention and made my palate say “Ole!” Do you know what that was? Well, it certainly wasn’t taquitos.

My one dish quickie at El Tepeyac were the Beef Enchiladas topped with Fried Eggs. When I finally got my order, I looked down and then I immediately looked around to see who’d be willing to share this dish with me. It was huge, but so were a lot of the other dishes ordered by my companions. I was definitely on my own.

Fork in hand, I cut into egg and enchilada and was happy to see the yolk gushing out. My first bite was delicioso. Granted, your doctor probably wouldn’t recommend a steady diet of melted cheese, beef and eggs, but for that moment, I didn’t care.

Now is this the best enchilada I ever had, even with the fried egg? Probably Not. Would I go out of my way to return to El Tepeyac just for this dish? Not really. But for that moment, it was tasty, filling and hit the spot. Of course, whenever I go to into a Mexican restaurant in the future, I just might have to see if the chef would be willing to take a special request – fried egg on enchilada, anyone?

A Bario Classic haunt

The Food, Get the “Manuals Special”,
will feed a whole table.
The super-sized Manuel Special, a wet burrito with rice, beans, guacamole, chili and pork, could feed an entire family. items abound the menu- but burritos are El Tepeyac’s raison d’etre.
The guacamole and chips are good.

I have been going here since 1967, and food prices up, quality down.

There is something about standing outside a hole in the wall, with 20 other people, waiting for a table!
Parking even with a Lot is ?
The blend od "will my car be vandalized or ripped off if parked here ~ leds to What??? Atmosphere!!!

Hard to find this, so this place then becomes an adventure !
Not sure how to rate adventures, but this is Classic!
Used to be served shooters at counter in old days from Manuel, but things do change!

I was planning to take the family and pulled up the menu but no pricing. Why? do they have something to hide or is it so overpriced that they do not show pricing? Decided not to go for this reason....
