In the morning of Saturday April 19, 2014 I spend a few hours at La Olla Restaurant in Edinburg with the goal of photographing my first restaurant for the project.
La Olla was founded in 1999 and it’s located near the Hidalgo County Courthouse on highway 107. The restaurant specializes in breakfast and lunch. They serve mole, caldo de mariscos, botanas and other predominantly Mexican inspired dishes.
Here’s a fun highlight about La Olla Restaurant that adds a folkloric touch to its ambience. Folk musicians visit the restaurant and sing tunes for a tip.
I had a chance to meet and chat with the owner Joe Ibarra.
