Walang relate sa post, gusto ko lang sabihin. Sige nga san movie un nasabi?😂
This meal is like a sunrise to me. I love everything on it. I remember eating this back home and each dish holds a story to tell.This one says about my go-to meal at Mexicali , and the time when I know I’m just 30mins away from home, and not 3.5hrs air travel.😌

Arroz a la cubana, (Cuban-style rice) or arroz cubano is a dish mostly eaten in Cuba. Its defining ingredients are rice and a fried egg. A plantain or banana, and tomato sauce, are so frequently used as often to be considered defining ingredients. Its origin is not definitively known; various informal sources state without references that it originated in Peru, the Philippines, etc. Some authors consider that it may have originated from rice dishes with fried eggs from Cuba when it was a Spanish colony.
There are many minor variations, even within the same regions.
