InFatChewAsian: Chilling with Chilaquiles: NorCal vs. SoCal Series Round 1 – Appetizer 4

2018: Chilaquiles from Anepelco's Cafe

Chilaquiles. It only took me (Ryan) 10+years to try this Anepelco Cafe’s version and have something to talk about with Mr. Don Juan of Taiwan (John). While John is reflecting across the ocean in his homeland of Taiwan during this important time (you’re in our thoughts, brother), Infatchewasian Season 2 is all about comparing and contrasting what’s good in NorCal vs. SoCal.

In this episode, the challenger is NorCal’s (Napa original) spot called Grace’s Table, which I tried, way back in 2014 (I know, I should go back to be fair but the episode sort of wrote itself, *shrugs*). We break down classically how the recipe is, what the merits are between these two, and whether or not we’ll ever go back for seconds.

Our Rating Scale: Each of us have a star that we can apply to our episode’s central theme. With a maximum of 3-stars that can be earned at the most.

  • 1 Star = Our Favorite. Always consistent and willing to go back for seconds or thirds.
  • 0.5 Star = Somewhat inconsistent and on the fence with the quality
  • 0 Star = Forget about it. We don’t even want to go back or resample anything.
