[You can read my first review here.] So much has changed in my life since I last visited Anepalco's Cafe, particularly the whole blogging thing. If anything, I hope that at the very least, my pictures have gotten better so you can fully appreciate what I've eaten, visually. Anyhow, I met up with some friends I hadn't seen in a while here for breakfast on a Saturday and boy was it busy. I didn't know that they had opened up a second location until one of the friends had gotten "lost" by going to the other one. I always had it in my mind that Anepalco's was just a little hole-in-the-wall place but good for them that they've expanded! I still like the hole-in-the-wall setting though.

This post is going to be short as two of us got the same thing, and I had already tried out what the third had ordered. My order (repeated by another) was Anepalco's Chilaquiles. Go for the namesake item, right? I am sure glad I did. "Tortilla chips, scrambled eggs, Cotija cheese, sour cream, avocado mousse, pico de gallo," and some kind of magic, secret sauce made for a much more amazing plate than I had imagined. The tortilla chips had been formed into a mound that screamed corn tortilla soaked in happiness (in the form of a red sauce). The scrambled egg was so fluffy and topped with the vegetables, it was the pleasant soft portion of the dish. I honestly believe that the shining star, however, was the sauce itself which surrounded the tortilla mound. It tasted like the roasted skins of chili peppers which had started to sweeten. It coated my mouth in awesomeness and refused to be denied from being dipped into constantly with the tortilla chips. Heck, I even scooped up some into my mouth without any accessories. What a great place to eat. I can't wait to check out the second location!
