Migas Review by The Melbourne Method
The Migas themselves were good, and I will not deny that I enjoyed them. However, they did not knock me out of my seat to exclaim: ?Hot dog! These here are the best Migas in Austin!? Indeed, I did not say that, and I doubt I would say such a thing, but I certainly cleaned all of the Migas from the plate . The amount of Migas was also good (but there is never enough) as the Migas took up just less than half the plate while each of the sides took up just a little bit more than a quarter (I am not going to mess with fractions), and the two tortillas were placed on top of the potatoes. Another strength of the Austin Java Migas was that the proportion of veggies mixed in with the eggs and tortillas was properly proportioned so that each bite contained some onions, peppers, or jalapenos ? and the cup of salsa was enough to coat the Migas. Sadly the tortilla chips were not quite as plentiful as the veggies, they were certainly there, but they weren?t there in any kind of force. Lastly (though not in importance) the layer of cheddar melted over the top was good enough to give the top a thorough coating but the rest of the Migas were hardly contaminated with cheese (which is a bad thing).

Admittedly, I generally don?t like beans with my eggs but I enjoyed the black beans on the plate, and the cheese melted on them was a tasty touch, they were even kind of spicy. Migas are the important part, undoubtedly, yet I also assign a certain level of importance to breakfast potatoes. I already mentioned the layout of the plate and noted that the potatoes were suspiciously hidden underneath the tortillas. This seemed amusing until I actually ate the potatoes. They looked like they?d be delicious but sadly they were not: cold, hard, and rather bland the potatoes significantly diminished my overall enjoyment. Nevertheless the Migas were certainly alright and would suitably sate a craving.
Migas Score: 4 out of 7
