64. Huevos Rancheros at Sra. Martinez
Any of the dishes on Sra. Martinez's a la carte brunch menu are sure to please, but the huevos rancheros stand out for a slew of reasons. The bottom layer is comprised of black beans that incur a two-day process of soaking, draining, and seasoning with the likes of pepper, garlic, cumin, cilantro, and bay leaves. Set on top is a crispy tortilla with eggs cooked just enough so the yolks aren't runny, sauce with a base of marzano tomatoes, crumbled queso fresco, cilantro, and sliced avocados. The result is a $9 plate of rich tastes and textures.
