The cafeteria where I work (ie: “work-school”) serves brekky, lunch, and dinner. For breakfast they have a motley assortment (no cereal carousel, thank goodness) of goods. I recently discovered that they do homemade tacos.
This is the SWTX equivalent of bagels in the northeast. And, much as I would enjoy a bagel every now and then, I must admit that the breakfast tacos down here are extremely, fabulously delicious (I know the one above looks kind of green, but that’s lighting, not food-quality).
I have never been a breakfast person. Sugar does not agree with me early in the morning. I’m also not a fan of milk or milk-like products. Thus, most traditional breakfast foods (eg: Cheerios, oatmeal, etc…) are out. I had a phase where I ate corned-beef sandwiches at 8 am.
So tacos are right up my ally. Particularly the kind with soft, freshly grilled tortilla filled with beans, potato & chorizo (a classic combo, much like cream cheese & lox), some cheddar cheese, and a few good points of hand-made salsa. It’s protein, dairy, bread, and a kick of flavor. It is so good.
You should try it.
On a side (related) note, if you are a girl and you use salsa, you might get lauds from the maintenance guys who work in your building for how amazing you are, and how you can “handle the heat.” That’s a hot tip for all you ladies out there.
Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.
