The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Ranchos Cocina, in North Park.
Ranchos Cocina fills its menu and its customers' plates with traditional, healthy Mexican cuisine. Crush breakfast cravings regardless of the sun's location with the all-day breakfast, featuring cups of organic coffee ($1.75–$3.50) and favorite dishes such as huevos rancheros, an egg dish infused with house-made ranchero sauce ($6.95), and vegan soy chorizo con tofu, featuring the spicy flavors of traditional chorizo and a side of applied ethics ($7.95). For a substantial latter-day meal, try one of Ranchos Cocina's platters, with rice, beans, guacamole, tortillas, and an entree item such as pescado fresco—the fresh-fish catch of the day ($11.95)—or pollo en salsa de mole, chicken slathered in house-made mole ($10.95).
- Fun and funky, Ranchos Cocina is the type of Mexican restaurant that appeals to just about everyone. Whether you crave carne asada with refried beans or prefer vegan-style blue corn avocado enchiladas, Ranchos can fill your order. – Gayot
