Café de olla
In Aguascalientes, one morning I offered to take a builder of beautiful homes and his lot salesman a desayunar but he insisted on taking us to breakfast with kind of an awaiting anticipation to treat us to something special.
Not familiar with AGS, he took us to a very popular neighborhood restaurant in a Vario called Encino. He mentioned that this unique restaurant specialized and served only breakfast.
The Vario wasn’t anything fancy but yet it was theirs which carried the meaning they were born and lived with up until the day we walked through the front doors stained with antiquity.
What I particularly found unusual, given the very large size of this impressive Mexican restaurant abutted against an attractive Zócalo was this beautiful church in its view. In addition, the rustic, polished ambiance gave way to a through back of days gone by. The waiters and waitresses were all dressed in typical Yuctecan outfits which complimented there excellent service.
Another kicker, it was a Wednesday about 10:30 in the morning and this huge place was packed to the brim. I thought to myself, this place is not just a Tacoria, it’s a nice restaurant, how come these people aren’t working and how can so many afford to eat breakfast so late on a Wednesday morning. I guess the answer is simple, the ambiance, food and service is inviting.
It was here the homebuilder encouraged us to order the Café de olla. We did and yes Bubba and Esperanza, the flavor was delicious. Albeit, not knowing its ingredients at the time, made it taste even better.
Based on connoisseur’s long time experience of the finer things which grace the pallet, I’ll take your word on this one. Next our kitchen will enjoy varying degrees of rich homespun coffee described by you as Café de olla, ala Esperanza.
Including a photo of just one of the homes this builder just built. Its 9000 sq. ft. and is even better looking inside. Most attractive is its price.
