Breakfast in the Bronx

I spent part of last weekend with an old friend up in the Bronx. A stone’s throw from where I lived my first year out of college in Riverdale. Oh, the 1 train! On saturday morning, we went to Malecon, one of several establishments throughout the city that serve awesome Dominican food at most times of the day. We had scrambled eggs, rice, red beans, and tostones.

I remember many years ago, being given some of this sauce for the first time, and feeling concerned about the color. But it’s indescribably awesome. It’s some kind of pickled garlic. very potent, and the perfect garnish for the tostones. I need breakfasts like this more often.
