Chamblee: Las Delicas De La Abuela

Las Delicas De La Abuela recently opened next to Buford Highway Farmers Market; this seems to be their second location after Duluth. The space is large and very family friendly, with plenty of big tables and room for kids to run around. The service was very friendly. And the food was great.

Here is one pair of pages from the menu. The food is Colombian; eggs seem to be a big theme. I ordered the Cacuela de Frijol. They also serve several breakfast items.

As you can see, the presentation of the dish is interesting and inviting. I put the egg in first and slowly added the corn cake and rice. The beans in the stew give it a hearty feel and texture. It also includes all sorts of other tidbits, some cooked with the beans and others added at the last minute. The pork skin was softened up by the beans and is the perfect complement. The egg flavor was slightly overwhelmed by the beans but it added a good dose of protein. The avocado gave some brightness to the dish, both visually and with a sweet, rich taste. Those are potato stix on top for a little crunch. I found the plantains at the bottom for a sweet surprise.
