Matamoros -- yuck; Mandalay yum

sbs | Sep 8, 2003 12:30 PM

Tried Matamoros in Wheaton last night. Was not impressed at all. Trying to be healthy, I ordered a "mixed greens" salad with blackened salmon on top. The mixed greens consisted of iceberg lettuce, there was one little slice of avocado, 2 slices of pink underripe tomatoes, and a couple of pieces of salmon that tasted very unfresh. Would not recommend. Having said that, the salsa was pretty good.

Tried Mandalay in College Park on Saturday night. What a treat! While the service was a little slow because the restaurant was pretty crowded, everyone we encountered who works there was so friendly and helpful. We ordered 2 veggie entrees and both were had wide noodles and peanutty soy sauce and the other had what seemed to be chickpeas in a yellow curry sauce. And by the way, the cream of wheat cake is amazing. Thanks for this recommendation!
