"I'll have the huevos al gusto, por favor"
Another good practical article Mike! Who doesn't like eggs for breakfast - pretty universal, so very helpful! Some of these traditional Mexican breakfasts sound like worth trying. I love huevos rancheros (I get them in the US too), though find it varies widely in how it is made and how much I like it. My one go to for breakfast when in Mexico though is jugo verde! yum!
I always stick with revueltos because it's easier, I like them that way, it's frequently the default, and I want to get to it. Like today. I didn't say; they arrived scrambled. Or maybe they know me and said oh hey this guy again.
By the way, the young man asked my querida if she wanted her pollo bien muerto or en vivio. Okay, I thought it was funny, but then some have said I'm easily amused.
By the by the way (that's like p.p.s I think), I saw a sign outside a place a while back that said they had cerveza bien muerta. I had to think about that one.
Now where was I? Oh yes, the ubiquitous egg. Be aware of the doble sentido when dealing with eggs. Best to stick with singular instead of plural. With plural, they'll know what you mean, but may have a little chuckle.
Thanks for the article Mike!
I always hated eating eggs as a kid, while I've started to like eating eggs specifically scrambled, I've never had a poached egg, Am i missing out on them and should I try the Huevos Ranchos as a gateway into poached eggs.
Certainly a most palatable story, Mike. I am very hungry now. Thanks. I encouraged a dear American lady friend of mine to learn some basic English before visiting Mexico. She succeeded with great confidence in uttering the following words to our waiter, "Yo querer un ranchero con huevos".
