Cajun French: Samedi (som-dee) – Saturday
Our Saturday morning equation is breakfast out and a farmers market. Some mornings it is breakfast first and then shopping and other times it is reversed. The order does not matter, it is getting both accomplished that we look forward to.
Being in an area for one maybe two Saturday’s at most does not give us time to search out those out of the way hole in the walls places. So we rely on friends to steer us in the best direction.
This particular Saturday a friend told us one of their favorite breakfast places in Georgetown was Dos Salsas. Although we enjoy Mexican food we rarely find a Mexican restaurant that suites us. We are not big on cheese covered food or food that tastes like it is out of a can. But knowing these friends also like good food, we decided to give Dos Salsas a try. We are very glad we did!
We decided to share two entrees. Whenever there are tamales on the menu John cannot resist even at breakfast. Maybe we should say even more when it is breakfast. The other entrée was the Saturday special – Huevos Divorciados.
We have not had good luck with tamales although we try them whenever available. These were a winner. They were moist with a good amount of filling. They were served with spicy guacamole sauce and sour cream. We could tell the tamales were fresh and made with knowing hands.
The Huevos Divorciados (divorced eggs) were served with breakfast potatoes and refried beans. One egg had green sauce, the other red sauce. Nothing was covered in cheese – what a relief! The eggs were perfectly cooked and served on a crispy tortilla. Laurie is the queen of beans and she devoured these. John enjoys breakfast potatoes and these were cooked to perfection – crispy outside and creamy inside.
Can you tell we enjoyed our breakfast?
The building we were told was once a Dairy Queen and has now been transformed into indoor/outdoor seating. The inside is nothing fancy and that was fine since it was the food we were interested in.
Dos Salsas is a family owned establishment run by Memo Plata and his family. Hats off to them for an enjoyable Saturday morning breakfast with friends.
