I was sure this was going to be a good spot for Huevos Rancheros, I don’t know why but I just had a feeling. The online reviews were mostly positive, it catered to working people that just want a quick and tasty affordable meal, and it’s in an area with lots of Mexicans. And they even have a lil’ vegetarian options menu, a nice touch. My HR-dar must be broken because sadly, the HR’s were terrible.
I don’t intentionally visit the ethnic eateries of People of Pallor to review their Huevos Rancheros. At least not lately. I’ve come to accept that there’s just a different palate for all us humans, based on factors such as history, geography, economics, culture, aspirations, convenience, yelp, brunch, lemmings, hunger, and plain ol’ stupidity. No point in going out of my way for a dish I’m likely not to enjoy. None of that is relevant for this review as the candidate for today’s HR’s just kinda happened.
When they opened up the huge new thrift store on Fletcher and San Fernando, the Goodwill people decided to close down their store in Lincoln Heights even though they have headquarters here. The new place at the old K-Mart is terrible and the layout is poorly designed. The cafeteria they heavily promoted has already closed. I wonder if decreased sales has motivated them to reopen their once popular location in the heart of LH’s Thrift Store district?
My plans for Colorado were craft beer, vegetarian biscuits and gravy, maybe some huevos rancheros IF I found a Mexican place I wanted to try. (I’m on vacation, I don’t need the stress.) We came to Leaf for the biscuits but as luck would have it, that’s only a weekend brunch option. Ugh. Stupid brunch is ruining eating.
There’s a long tradition of hobos leaving secret signs to other travelers so as to warn of dangers or guide them to a resource.
This one seems to be coded in plain language but hiding some other significance. I wonder what it means?
