Anepalco's Cafe Now Easier to Back Out of, And a New Dish!
Anyone who's ever eaten atAnepalco's Cafe
, that gorgeous little French-Mexican breakfast-lunch spot near St. Joseph's and CHOC, will tell you that the dive's one sin is its horrific parking: right on busy Main Street, in a small parking lot that has customers backing in directly to traffic. Makes for a charming picture, but a nightmare of neck-stretching and using all the rear-view mirrors at your disposal, if not your beloved stepping onto Main and making the traffic stop.
Now, it's a bit easier: instead of Anepalco's parking stalls being perpendicular to the restaurant, it's now angled. Trust me: it's now easier. Oh, happy day! And there's a new dish to entice you for another visit: the huevos divorceados.
As usual, the chavos running the place give this Mexican breakfast of over-easy eggs topped with a red and green sauce on each side a gourmet spin. Instead of separating the two eggs with chilaquiles, they place slightly fried tortillas on the bottom of each egg. The yolk on each is only slightly cooked--it won't gush out when you stab into it but slowly leak, like a good egg should. Eat up, and remember: although the parking is better, you still have to back out slooooooooowly...
