We’ve all got one. That desk drawer full of plastic utensils, ketchup packets, tea bags and takeout menus. Some of us may have a lil’ snack stash for “emergencies.”
So what do you do when you leave your job? Do you dump the contents of your drawer? Do you toss the edibles and leave the menus? Do you leave it all behind — after all, you worked hard to collect all those flavors of Taco Bell sauce?

Growing up, family trips to Deanie’s meant two things: waiting forever for a table and getting full on boiled potatoes and crab balls. Some 20-plus years later they’re as delicious (shown here as part of the “crab duo”) as I remembered.

Country Club Sandwich with Fries from Fuel Cafe, submitted by Tiffany
Las Delicias offers a selection of ten different tortas —
- Milanesa (sliced breaded steak)
- Pork leg
- Cuban (pork leg, pastor, ham and cheese; this one costs a little more)
— as well as a “combination,” which allows you to pick two toppings. Pork leg, pastor and Cuban are my standbys, but on this day I was struggling to decide. So, I ordered a chorizo and egg torta and nicknamed it “Mexican Breakfast Sandwich.”
At first I was hesitant to order eggs from a menu that includes few egg dishes, but in my many previous experiences at Las Delicias the ingredients have been super-fresh. This was no different. The ground sausage was spicy and the scrambled eggs were just crumbly enough. It was a little messy, but isn’t that the hallmark of a great sandwich?
As always, we started with an order of Las Delicias’ famous made-to-order guacamole and split a bowl of chicken tortilla soup.
