Salty Cheese -- Desayuno @ Honduras Maya in PkSlp

at203 | Aug 19, 2003 10:20 AM

I had "desayuno" at Honduras Maya in Park Slope (5th Ave & 15th Street) on Friday.

For $5 each, my boyfriend and I got a plate with a dollop of refried beans, a scoop of sweet delicious plantains, and scrambled eggs. Also included was a bowl of crema for the table, and a basket with four chewy flatbreads for scooping up the various elements.

What piqued my curiousity was the a credit-card sized sliver of dense, salty, white cheese. What is this? I'm no Latin American food expert, so please let on if you know what this is.

The food was delicious. The portions were medium-sized, which was good for me, since I hate huge portions at brunch (I feel fat for the rest of the day). The waitress told us were also going to get avocado slices with our meal, which mysteriously didn't show up, but that was fine with us since we were stuffed.

I think that it is the only thing they serve at that time of day -- I don't think there are other choices. We weren't given a menu, though. Someone who speaks better spanish may elicit more info.

This is a great deal for brunch. Cafe con leche is $1 extra. Pleasant staff, and a cheery, if sterile, environment.
