Last year around this time I went to have some Sunday Brunch at one of my favorite restaurants, Las Alamedas. I usually had Huevos Rancheros, three sunny-side-up eggs with salsa, refried beans, and tortillas. Oh, and a Gold Margarita on the rocks.
It was the beginning of the pandemic, and I took some pictures because it was so quiet. I usually would sit outside on the patio, and the little park area was generally full of little kids running around, jumping and doing flips, being loud. My only companion on this day was a crow, hoping I would drop a tortilla chip he could scarf up.
Yesterday, a Sunday, I checked to see if they had opened up again, because I had a hankering for some Huevos Rancheros.
Greg Abbott opened up Texas, but it was too little, too late. I wonder how many thousands of other businesses couldn’t weather the storm. A pandemic that 99 percent recover from, a pandemic that eradicated the flu.
Las Alamedas had been a Houston area favorite since the 1980s. An institution really. It will be missed.Published in
