My breakfast this past Sunday. I was wavering, not sure if I should try HR’s at a Central American themed eatery, plus the platano sounded like a good option. But I am always up for a gamble so alas I choose the road often travelled. I shoulda stayed home.
The rice is not good, either it was old or they flavor it with socks. They don’t do the pinto beans very well either. Oddly, they had a nicely fried tortilla underneath the decent eggs. Unfortunately those eggs were topped with that bland pre-grated cheese you get at supermarkets, at least they weren’t smothered. But the orange sauce was some watery and vinegary Tabasco-like excuse for a salsa ranchera with hardly any hint of spice, flavor, depth or overall usefulness. Boring food is not worth eating.
Their drip coffee is that weak stuff that I don’t prefer, but it does the job. They have a Chapin sandwich that is quite good, and which I can wholeheartedly recommend. I do plan to come back for that breakfast platano dish.
Just DO NOT ORDER THE HR’S!
