On Saturday before the BSU game where they won 48-21 over UNLV, we went to a Pre-Game happy hour meal with Marnie and Mac to The Matador (For the Home Page) or Boise Restaurant, a Mexican restaurant chain out of Seattle. The photo on the left is the bar area in the restaurant. The restaurant space utilizes dark wood tables and booths. We sat nearest the windows that open out to a moderately sized patio. Large servings, almost too large [leftovers are another meal or two] and a great dessert. Enjoy these photos of what we had.
Braised Pork Carnitas
Slow cooked Natural pork shoulder with orange, allspice, cinnamon and bay leaves. Served the traditional way with Black Beans, Rice, Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, Sour Cream and Corn Tortillas. ($13.95)
Almost flourless, rich and moist. House made with Madagascar vanilla, ice cream and pineapple rum caramel. ($6.00)
So there you have it – No bull fights. Sorry, but I did not taste the allspice, the cinnamon or the orange in the carnitas. Let us know what you think. Cheers and thanks Marnie and Mac for introducing us to the restaurant! I rate this 3 out of 5. We will return.
