Mexican Breakfast in Escondido..

Nothing better to start a road trip than with a fab Mexican breakfast..leaving Sunday morning..
Any suggestions..Cocina de Maria..Lourdes..?
BC - I was going to suggest Cocina de Maria but actually I think going to the Swap meet for breakfast would be awesome. Sunday morning is THEE day to go - with the most activity.
There is Fiesta Oaxaquena - which I can reccomend but also countless others in 2 areas of the meet.
Lourdes - I have only been for their chicken soup which is riquisima but I dont think you'll want that for breakfast.
You could always pick up tamales to eat at Ancira in the car as well.
If you are looking for more of a restaurant setting though - Cocina de Maria is the place you should go.
Cocina Del Charro on Quince Street has always delivered a great Mexican food buffet on the weekend.
I was dreaming of a Mexican breakfast so I got my butt up and posted at 3am so I'll have lots to choose from when I awaken..
Doesn't have to be in Escondido..but they do have the swap meet thing with lots of great choices..is Cocina de Maria still there?
Bull Taco has breakfast..looks good.
Any ideas for me?
I was going to eat at Maria's last Wed noonish but they were closed!!! Don't know what is going on but the closed sign was very apparent from the car so I didn't stop. Really bummed me out since I had been so looking forward to it. I hope it was just some problem and not a permanent closing.
As a side note and a very sad one, whilst they remain open, El Chiapaneco's owner, the lovely lady behind the counter whose name I never learned, has died. They are still producing and selling tamales, however, the fantastic rellenos and birria that they served on the w'ends is no more. A very sad day.
