- My Bernie's Cafe
I did have a cafe when we lived in Rosarito, Baja California. We served both American and Mexican dishes.
I added to the menu, milk shakes, ice cream floats made with the customer's choice of soda, including Strawberry Crush, Orange Crush, Root Beer, Pepsi or Coke, or any other soft drink available. We also served fresh french fries, and such things as fresh Mexican style vegetable soup with chicken broth, prepared fresh daily. I prepared Chili Rellenos, as well as my own handmade grand and delicious hamburgers, T-Boned Steaks, baked potatoes, Huevos Rancheros, pan cakes, bacon and eggs, or steak with eggs, as well as fresh hand made burritos, unlike anything you can usually buy in Mexico.
My burritos contained low fat, ground beef, tomatoes, chopped onions, cilantro, and cheese if desired. Many things that I served were not available in any Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Yet, they could also order the small soft corn tortilla tacos, prepared as they normally serve them north and south of the border, nowadays.
My Cafe did not serve food on paper plates, but on real dishes, simple, and delicious.
I'm getting hungry just writing about it, right now.
