11. A La Ranchera at Adelita's Cafe
The a la ranchera ($5) at Adelita's Cafe, an unassuming Honduran restaurant off Biscayne, is probably the most delicious breakfast in town that you can devour anytime of day. It's served with fresh, warm tortillas (flour or corn), into which you can heap refried beans, a sweet creamy sauce, eggs over easy (just runny enough in the middle), queso blanco, and the tangy salsa that makes it a la ranchera. This "wrap" of sorts will be messy, but the flavor will make the shame associated with public finger and hand licking negligible. The purple sauce with crunchy onions on the side is the just hot enough hot sauce, definitely acceptable also for the "mild" eaters. Don't be fooled by Adelita's outside appearance, it's actually a pretty huge place inside with Latin music on the jukebox, a pool table, and a ton of awesome dishes to add to your favorites list.
