And with that cheesy blog title, I bring you my review of a dinner that me and Mr. WC had at Matamoros the other night. This was our first visit to the restaurant, and it's been on our list to try for a while. We ate there on a Tuesday and were the only people in the restaurant for most of our meal. We shared two pupusas for an appetizer. While they were a little burned here and there, I thought they were both alright. The fillings didn't really have enough flavor to them, though, so I mostly ended up tasting the sauce and cabbage we had with them more than the pupusas themselves.
Ordering entrees was a little frustrating since they were out of the first two fish dishes we were interested in trying. We ended up sharing two dishes - the plato durango, which includes a chicken enchilada, a beef taco (hard shell), and a chicken tamal with rice and beans; and the huachinango en cilantro, which was pan-fried red snapper with cilantro based sauce and grilled zucchini.
None of the items in the plato durango really stood out for me. Both chicken dishes were fairly bland, but I thought that the beef taco was decent. I liked the red snapper slightly better, but still, it just seemed a little bland to me.
While our meal at Matamoros wasn't horrible, it wasn't great either. I would definitely rank Sergio's ahead of Matamoros in terms of meal quality and for the variety of dishes offered on the menu. I'm also still a fan of Irene's for the pupusas, but I need to get back over there for a review because it's been a while.
Any readers out there have any other recommendations for Tex-Mex/Salvadoran/etc food in Wheaton? Perhaps a visit to a certain food truck is in order.
