After hearing a number of good things about Anepalco’s Cafe in Orange I made my way down there and ended up eating breakfast there for 3 of the past Saturday mornings. Each visit I tried a new breakfast dish.
On my first visit I tried the Anepalco’s Chilaquiles which was a beautifully presented stack of lightly fried corn tortillas sitting in a pool of amazing red sauce topped with a folded egg. Out of all my visits to Anepalco’s Cafe this dish is a true winner and what Mexican breakfast can really be.
On visit number two the waiter suggested I try the Huevos Divorciados, which I think translates to divorced eggs. One egg in green and one egg red sauce.
For my third visit I changed it up and decided to try a Tortilla Andorra La Vella (tortilla omelette) which isn’t at all a tortilla, it was a very delicate omelette with goat cheese, Spanish chorizo, and onion. A very light dish packed with the strong flavors of the cheese and chorizo. Served with toast and roasted potatoes on the side. I loved their red sauce so much I asked for some on the side to mix with my potato.
I’m really happy to have a place like Anepalco’s nearby, they make quality breakfast dishes at very reasonable prices (typically $6-8) and the waiter that works Saturday mornings is very nice and attentive. If you haven’t visited them already I suggest to check them out.
