Eat This Saturday or Sunday: Chilaquiles at Masa

When caffeine alone cannot fuel the day's endeavors, substance is key. The Tacoma area doesn't have a shortage of grubbin' breakfast establishments, especially come time for the weekend. Whether nursing remnants of the evil little nymphs of a hangover or simply looking to start my day, a favorite joint of mine to indulge in breakfast that isn't Captain Crunch, I mainline it to Masa.

One Masa breakfast dish calls my name - the chilaquiles ($8.99). It's incredible. This behemoth is a mound of deliciousness. Corn tortilla strips are simmered and evenly coated in flavorful red enchilada sauce then tossed with crumbly cotija cheese, cilantro and choice of chicken or steak. Masa then tops it with two eggs (any style) and garnishes it with a little bite from fried jalapeño strips and drizzled crema. The matrimony of flavors and textures makes my taste buds bust out in the "Macarena." It's hearty with a little kick, just the kind of thing I like to roll out of bed to.

The chilaquiles is easily shareable (pictured above is a half order as I split it with my husband) and pairs phenomenally with its Stumptown cup of joe or house special jalapeño Bloody Mary.

Chilaquiles is ultimate in Mexican hangover breakfasts. (Well, it may be a toss-up between these and huevos rancheros. I'll let you be the judge.)

MASA, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Monday-Friday, weekend breakfast 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday-Sunday, 2811 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.254.0560
