It has been a while since I have been to La Plazuela. It isn’t a fault of the restaurant or staff at all I assure you. I’ve always enjoyed going. It just fell off my list for a time.
Today is a holiday in Mexico. For the government, it is a celebration of the Mexican constitution. For the Catholic church it is the day that Jesus was presented at the temple after his birth – Candlemas. While I was out today, I saw many ladies going and coming from mass, carrying a representation of Jesus from their home Nacimiento (Nativity Scene) to be blessed.
For my part, I went to brunch at La Plazuela. Centro was busy, but the restaurant was fairly quiet. I decided to try a dish that has always interested me – Huevos de la Flamenca. It is two eggs, sitting on a bed of smoky Spanish chorizo and a layer of sautéed mushrooms, green chiles and onions, that has been baked in the oven with a spicy tomato sauce. It is rich layers of flavor and was exactly what I wanted, even though I didn’t realize it. The eggs are accompanied with some nice light rolls and the brunch starts with a small dish of papaya, yogurt and granola. Perfect for a mid-morning holiday meal.
