    The Chicagoboyz Diet

    Chicagoboyz recommends the Salvadoran breakfast.

    UPDATE: Here’s the restaurant. Worth visiting if you’re in the area.

      Looks like heartburn guaranteed. What’s that yellow stuff?

    2. Jonathan Says:

      They don’t have eggs in NY?

      A satisfying meal.

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      What is the item to the right of the cup of brown sauce?

    4. Tatyana Says:

      Dan, I think that’s fried plantains (right, Jon?) – very good thing, I like it.
      Jon, THAT doe not look like eggs. Decidedly.
      OK, tomorrow I’ll take a picture of my morning omelet, for fair comparison.

    5. Jonathan Says:

      Plantains, yes. Very tasty.

      “Brown sauce” was beans, eaten on the tortilla with cream from the other cup.

      The eggs were excellent, scrambled with tomatoes. There is more than one good way to cook eggs.

      The photo does not do the meal justice.

    6. Dan from Madison Says:

      Looks awesome. We don’t get plantains served up here too often.

    7. Dan from Madison Says:

      Also, is that feta or some other tpye of cheese between the two cups?

    8. Jonathan Says:

      A mild white cheese, not very salty, almost sweet, with a consistency like loose feta.

      In my experience, darkly- fried things (in vegetable oil), like plantains, plus hard-t-digest beans plus even dense corn-flour bread plus fatty dairy like wedge of cheese are quite heavy on the stomach. Especially at breakfast.
      I have to say you’re right: the eggs on the photo didn’t really looked like eggs – I thought it is something made with corn flour, sort of polenta but Salvadorean; rather plasterlike-looking.
      True, eggs could be cooked in endless variety of ways (Escoffier counted at least 120, f.i)

      Here’s mine, as promised.

      That does look good, if heavy. I like plantains.
