Stay Hungry, Mi Amigos

January 14th, 2017 § 0 comments

An early morning errand in Santa Fe gave HG the opportunity to breakfast at Tecolote Cafe on St. Michael’s Drive. Tecolote is open for breakfast and lunch only. And, if you eat one of their chile based New Mexican platters you can skip meals until the next day. Servings are HUGE and tasty. Breakfast burritos are epic. Tecolote is a family owned and run restaurant that has been serving hardworking New Mexicans for many years. HG wanted a modest breakfast–two poached eggs sided with home fries. Plus a basket of home baked products. The breakfast wasn’t modest. The home fries were a virtual mountain of crisp (just greasy enough) goodness. The poached eggs were perfect. The bread basket contained warm biscuits and pleasant muffins. Lots of butter and strawberry jam. Endless cups of coffee. Down home generosity. HG’s dining neighbors were five very mature, large stomached construction guys (there were rolled up construction plans on a chair). The table was buried in big platters of carne adovado (red chile pork stew), posole and beans. Everything was covered in melted cheese and fried eggs. Stacks of tortillas. Pitchers of iced tea. The rugged gourmands were still eating when HG left.
