New fall hours begin for El El Frijoles, Sargentville’s best (and only) choice for delicious Mexican food.The taqueria is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
(OK, El El is the “Best Mexi-Cali-Maine restaurant,” according to Yankee Magazine. Because where else can you get a spicy lobster burrito?)
When El El is closed Saturdays through Tuesdays, you can enjoy a taste of El El Frijoles at home with their tasty salsas, on sale at the Stonington Farmers Market.
And if you haven’t seen the video above, check it out. Last summer, Princeton, N.J., filmmaker Jon Roember created this video about Michele and Michael. Here’s what they have to say about it:
He was interested in working the bugs out of some new equipment, had a few vacation days and was thinking about maybe making a little film about EL EL FRIJOLES. We were thrilled to have him here (and for those of you in need of a good photo/videographer, he worked as hard as any of the folks I worked with in my 20+ years as a photo assistant, but on his vacation!). We offered him access to anything he wanted, which included some painful interview sessions with Michele and I, and he took a lot of pictures of our food. The result is this amazing look at what we do here at EL EL FRIJOLES, in a barn, in the woods in Maine.
