Name This Dish and Where It's From

It is a traditional Mexican dish served fresh right here in town.

Somewhere in Fair Oaks a small, out-of-the-way eatery exists that has been putting together fresh traditional Mexican cuisine for more than a year now.

To this writer, it was a first-time experience. For the handful of patrons packed into the small restaurant, it was apparent they were already in the know.

When asked about some of the more popular dishes, the clerk behind the counter, Catherine, was quick to point a handful of selections, including the above image.

Can you guess where this was made? Do you think you know what it is?

Is it the place on the corner of Madison and Fair Oaks near the Chevron Oil Stop? Next to Naan Indian Grill (Yummm, by the way). I've this new taqueria there and havn't tried it yet. If this is it, maybe I'll go sooner than later. I've never seen egg nachos before.

Dan, that was pretty close. The location is Cilantros Taqueria at 8121 Madison right next door to Naan Indian Grill. The dish is chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican breakfast made with fried pieces of corn tortillas, then sautéed with a red or green sauce (red sauce pictured) and served with scrambled or fried egg, refried beans and Spanish rice. Yumm! Thanks to everyone for participating and look for the next picture this week. Anyone have any suggestions? Naan may be in order at some point...

If you need anyone to eat food and take pictures of it on Patch's dime, just let me know! I'm willing to sacrafice for the good of the team.

We'll definitely keep it in mind, Dan! Thanks for the support.

Ooooo, this picture is deceiving. This could have easily been Carmalitas - Pre-remodel era. :-) OR... Kiko's (1988) on Sunrise cross of Fair Oaks, where the newly remodeled Village Market is located. (gosh I've been here too long, need to move to San Diego)
