Plato Típico

“Desde que tengo memoria, en mi casa los sábados el almuerzo ha sido plato típico. Le llamamos ‘brunch’ porque los sábados todos nos despertamos tarde, nadie desayuna y comemos hasta medio día, entonces el plato típico cumple la función de desayuno y almuerzo. Ahora que ya no vivo con mis papás, los brunch del sábado son aún más especiales porque son el día de la semana que nos reunimos nuevamente a platicar de todo y disfrutar el delicioso “brunchito” que prepara mi mami. El plato típico tiene variaciones, todos le ponen sus agregados preferidos, pero en general un buen plato típico catracho tiene que tener frijolitos, plátano, algún tipo de carne (carne asada, chorizo, etc.), queso, aguacate, arroz, mantequilla rala (de esa que solo en Honduras se encuentra) y chismol. En mi casa en vez de arroz comemos huevo. Además no deberían faltar las tortillas y, por supuesto, al final de la comilona viene el cafecito! El café (con pan dulce, si aún queda espacio!) y la platicadita son el cierre perfecto de cualquier comida. De los platos típicos que he podido probar, no cambio el de mi tierra porque además de ser delicioso, tiene el aspecto sentimental de recordarme a mi gente, a mi familia y evocar las más lindas memorias que tengo con ellos.”

  This is probably the most important dish in our gastronomical collection. Not only is it a superb example of a complete meal with all the elements on the food table, but it’s also so delicious! It includes a variety of foods, all prepared separately: grilled meat, pork sausages, refried beans, ‘chismol’, fried plantains, rice, and eggs. Served with sour cream, white cheese, avocado, and corn tortillas, this dish can vary according to the time of day, and also on your budget. Some people find it hard nowadays to include meat in their meal; but no matter the budget, beans, eggs, sour cream, and tortillas are always present. Corn tortillas are a staple in our cuisine, ever-present, freshly-made, they are a mandatory side in many a household! Mostly made fresh in each home, the famous ‘tortillera’ can be easily found around town.
