Pepe's Part 1

One of the things I love about my mom is her willingness to try all different types of food when I bring it home. After spending 6 hours trying to decide what I wanted for breakfast (then lunch), I went to Pepe's in Alhambra to try their machaca and Wet Burrito.

What is machaca you might ask? Dry shredded beef with onions, eggs, and chile peppers. It's one of my favorite dishes when I want that mix of breakfast (egg) food served up mexican style. Their machaca was a little drier than I expected, but I think I've been spoiled by El Tepeyac's machaca, which is seasoned better, a little more moist, and topped with two sunny side up eggs.
