Fonda Margarita has all the makings of an ideal Mexican breakfast: chicharrón en verde, bistec en pasilla, hot tortillas, and fresh salsas. But my pick is refritos con huevo, or the “bean-and-egg thing,” essentially a quenelle of eggs scrambled with lots of lard, freckled with refried black beans. It looks about as appetizing as drain blockage but a spoonful, wrapped in a corn tortilla, and a sprinkle of salsa, is heavenly. Get there early to grab one and a cup of cinnamon-sweet café de olla—Fonda Margarita is only open from five-thirty to eleven a.m. or twelve p.m.
