6 days in NM: day 4 - back to Los Potrillos

I'm not one to mess with a good thing, so even though this is a quick trip to Santa Fe, we went back to Los Potrillos today, rather than trying some other place. This time, it was for breakfast, and it reinforced my conviction that living in Santa Fe is not an option for me because I would not be able to resist breakfasts like these, and they would eventually kill me.

However, in the meantime: Bring it on. I had chilaquiles (tortilla chips simmered in green chile sauce and topped with cheese) with scrambled eggs, pinto beans, outrageously delish fried potatoes, and a frosty mug of OJ. Yum. Gone.

In my earlier homage to Los Potrillos, I neglected to mention Gil's Thrilling (And Filling) Blog, which is what sent me to the restaurant in the first place. Muchas gracias, Gil.


  1. If you have time, take a drive out to Abiquiu (45 miles NW of SF). It's beautiful there. Unfortunately to get there you have to take a route through Espanola, a dreadful place. There's a place called Ghost Ranch, that has wonderful hikes. Also great hikes at the White Place (Plaza Blanco). Abiquiu is my favorite place on earth.

  2. Geez... and I had a bowl of Speial K this morning! Glad you're enjoying you're trip, Siobhan, eat, drink and stay merry!

  3. Of course I meant "Special K". And they said that cereal improves blood flow to the brain!
