Rocky’s Frybread at El Rio, part deux! »
I went to El Rio on Monday to partake in some crazy shenanigans, including a friend’s rock show and $1 PBRs. On a Monday! Nuts, I know. Rocky Yazzie was also at El Rio, though for different reasons entirely. He sets up shop in the backyard of El Rio on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to make and serve his amazing frybread! Laura posted about this last year, so I felt we could all use a refresher, because you need to eat it NOW.
You can get your frybread sweet or savory. The sweet frybread comes with honey and powdered sugar, but I’ve read he has agave nectar for vegans. I didn’t even think to ask that night because I was in the mood for savory! My burrito plans were out the window.
It’s Rocky! And my flash. Sorry.
You know you want this! Navajo-style taco (sans cheese) with vegan bean stew, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions atop his fluffy frybread. Frybread that he makes to order. And the stew? So flavorful and just the right amount of spicy. Get it! $5 a taco, and believe me, they are big enough to share.
Rocky sets up at 8 p.m. and serves until he runs out. See you at El Rio!
Here is something amazing to do tonight. Go to El Rio, have a delicious alcoholic beverage for cheap and then eat some MOTHERFLIPPING FRY BREAD. Perfect Monday night!!
Rocky Yazzie of Rocky’s Frybread will be serving the most magical-looking fry bread that’s dusted with powdered sugar and honey (you can get without honey or bring your own bottle of agave nectar DO IT); so amazing. El Rio is pretty much the greatest place on earth and when matched with FRY BREAD??? Can I get a fuck yeah? Rocky will be in front of El Rio at 3158 Mission St. at Cesar Chavez Street from 9 p.m. on. Open up your mouth and feed it!
