Nopalitos Southwestern Cafe
5530 H St.
My parents and I were looking for a place open early for breakfast on Saturday morning and this place popped up on Yelp with great reviews. After a deluge of Korean meals, my parents and I were grateful for the opportunity to try some delicious California’s Southwestern cuisine. My dad is a bit more of a picky eater so he went with a safer dish, the pancakes with fresh banana. He really liked his pancakes, they were very fluffy.
My mom got the most popular item on the menu, a cactus omelette. I’ve never really eaten cactus before (except for one time inside of a wedding cake) but I do know that cactus is a very prevalent menu item in Mexico. I tried a bite and it had a mild flavor, I didn’t really know I was eating cactus. My mom’s breakfast plate came with breakfast potatoes on the side.
I love burritos! I got the breakfast burrito with chorizo (sausage). It had scrambled eggs, potatoes and salsa inside with cheese. delicious! I definitely want to come back and try the lunch menu.
