On Saturday we had a carne asada, or Mexican barbecue, at Claire and Miguel's place.
Carne asada also refers to the meat - carne asada - which is made from skirt steak marinated with spices and olive oil then cut into slices, cooked on a grill, and often served up in tacos.

But first breakfast, of course.
Tom and I woke up early and headed out around 7:30 am from our hostel back to the Bongo Room (see yesterday's post), hoping to beat the Saturday morning breakfast crowd.
But crowded and lively as the streets of Wicker Park had been the previous night, this morning they were empty and quiet.
It is me, or does that seem kind of late for a breakfast joint to open?
