So this weekend I enjoyed a wonderful escape to Vermont with my beau… I must admit, this summer has been lots of fun and full of thrills, but I hadn’t really had the opportunity to really indulge in much sunshine or outings!
I was completely due for a getaway (and MAN did it feel great to be disconnected from everything)!
One of our favorite must-eat-at places when we go is Penny Cluse Cafe (seriously, Montreal has nothing like them), a beautifully restored old house in the heart of downtown Burlington that serves up a mean cuppa coffee, zucchini french toast, banana bread with walnut cream cheese and the best Huevos Rancheros I have yet to come across (I am seriously salivating just thinking about it)! Wait times can definitely be long, but I assure you it is always very worth it!
Okay, now back to my fascination with Huevos Rancheros!
I don’t know what it is (or maybe I do… the fried eggs, the black beans, the salsa and the guacamole…) but my mouth goes into insta-drool mode when I think about this Spanish breakfast delight. I know that sometimes the plates themselves end up looking a little gross when everything is mixed in together, but really the combination of flavors is unbeatable!!!
It’s a totally healthy dish, giving you protein (eggs and beans), antioxidants (tomatoes), omega 3 (avocados), dairy (sour cream) and even grains (pita) for good measure.
I think I found one of the most perfectest foods – EVER!
Have you tried Huevos Rancheros before?
If so, any recommendations for kick-ass restaurants in Montreal that have perfected it?
