Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The Huevos Rancheros from The Giraffe
As it is a weekend tradition, I am plugging a meal from a restaurant. This time it is a breakfast, from The Giraffe, a quirky chain specialised in... I guess eco-friendly, fair trade food? I went there last time on the first day of my Christmas holidays, at Heathrow. I had been there once before, but never had their breakfast and had not been overly impressed. But this was different. A Mexican breakfast is just exotic enough to make the experience unusual, yet it still feels and tastes like a breakfast, if I make sense. I love how it tweeks the traditional elements of breakfast: the eggs are there, but there is spicy chorizo instead of bland sausages, tortilla instead of bread, black beans instead of the disgusting beans in tomato sauce the Brits have and you have all the unusual vegs and the avocado. It was filling, spicy and it felt healthy.
