You know I love to eat, especially when I am on vacation! You could say that I eat almost anything and everything in sight. Hahaha, seriously you know I’m not lying if you follow me on instagram!
While we were in Los Angeles last month, my friend Ana from Cha Cha Covers introduced us to Homegirl Cafe. We made it right on time for breakfast which ends at 11am.
I love Mexican breakfast, and almost ALWAYS order chilaquiles, either verdes or divorciados (half red/half green). So what are chilaquiles? Chilaquiles is a plate of: fresh tortilla chips topped with either red or green salsa, queso, crema, sliced red onions, and cilantro with 2 eggs sunnyside up and a side of black beans.
At Homegirl Cafe, your chilaquiles come with an option of black beans, homegirl potatoes, or house salad. I obviously went with the the black beans. And the two eggs were also optional, at an extra cost of $3, which I had to fork over.
Overall, I was pretty happy with my plate of chilaquiles from Homegirl Cafe. My only “but”, my egg was a little over done..everything else was FRESH! I ate it all and even licked my plate clean ahahaha.
Why is it called Homegirl Cafe? Because the women working there are “serving you instead of serving time.” GULP, yes that’s right. Homegirl Cafe is a part of Homeboy Industries, an organization “that serves high risk, formerly gang-involved men and women with a continuum of free services and programs.” Homegirl Cafe is one of “seven social enterprises that serve as job training sites.”
