chilaquiles! from los comadres in salinas. i was getting tired of the american breakfasts and really appreciated the old school chilaquiles-just sauce and chips, with scrambled eggs. and rice and beans. and crema.
Breakfast at the Sea Ranch Lodge: red pepper and goat cheese omelette, chicken-apple sausages, lovely rosti, and sourdough toast.
This is what I imagine was the cutting edge of california cuisine in the early 90s. Artful and delicate, but not exactly artisan or homemade. For example, the jam offered is of the little pots found in business hotels variety and the coffee is served in airline-style low ceramic cups from your own regular sized thermos pot. Everything is a bit underseasoned.
