MartAnnes: Restaurant and Food Photographer Flagstaff Arizona
Restaurant and Food Photographer Flagstaff Arizona: MartAnnes.
The sign out front declares it “The House That Chilaquiles Built,” and judging by the hungry masses waiting patiently outside, you’ll at once know this is a house you want to enter. If a restaurant can define a community, then MartAnne’s sums up Flagstaff in a nutshell: colorful, generous and a little bit spicy.
Anne Martinez bought the restaurant after waiting tables across the street for 15 years. She inherited a clientele hungry for a hearty Mexican breakfast, but the most important person in her new venture literally came with the building. Ms. Alice had worked in that very spot since the 1960s and passed down many of the recipes that Martinez still uses today.
Restaurant and Food Photographer Flagstaff Arizona: About The Location…
MartAnne’s does serve lunch, but one look at the all-day breakfast menu will have you throwing caution to the culinary wind and ordering eggs at noon. The legendary chilaquiles start with fried corn tortillas layered with scrambled eggs, cheese, onions and a choice between green-tomatillo- and red-chile sauce. Add tender pork green chile and you have the Fratelliquiles, named after the brothers who own Flagstaff’s Fratelli Pizza.
The ingredients are always the same, but the dish named after Martinez’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Jerry evolves along with their relationship. Even though it’s currently called Jerry el Mujeriego, or Jerry the Womanizer, the creamy pork green-chile enchilada topped with eggs will make you beg her to take him back.
