El Rancho

The Celiac Dinnerclub made it to El Rancho Restaurant in February. This hidden treasure makes authentic El Salvadorean and Mexican foods, making you feel as though you were actually in El Salvador! They also play great latin tunes to enhance the whole experience. Nearly all of the food on the menu is naturally gluten free, and most of the other things can be made gluten free (watch out for the enchiladas mexicanas, burritos, & quesadillas). I personally decided to go crazy on the appetizers, and was not disappointed by a single one. The pupusas were a huge hit, and the enchiladas el salvadoranias, flautas mexicanas, tamales, and camarones en la plancha were all excellent! Most of the appetizers could be considered a light meal, as several of them even come with a light salad. The flautas were a favourite of mine, and I've ordered them a couple of times since. I just can't resist! The prices are very reasonable, and range from about $6.95-$18 for a meal. The restaurant is quite small, and family owned & operated. They do not have a large staff, and so you may have to wait a bit for your meal. It is a great opportunity for some wine & good conversation! I highly recommend El Rancho to anybody craving a taste of authentic latin food, good music, and a friendly atmosphere. El Rancho is located at 11810 87 Street, Edmonton.
