Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why the easiest way to gain access to any VIP lounge is to show up slathered in egg yolks. Rub elbows with early-morning munchables with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mexican breakfast and lunch fare at Casa Alde in Buda.
Chefs at Casa Alde start sautéing before sunrise in order to have their Tex-Mex eats ready for breakfast and lunch. End overnight hunger strikes by tearing into one of the Mexican breakfast plates, which come loaded with chorizo, eggs, beans, and other meats and veggies ($4.65¬–$6.95). Breakfast plates call for backup from tacos such as the Fattie, which swaddles potatoes, bacon, eggs, sausage, and cheese inside a soft-shell tortilla ($2.90). The lunch menu teems with sandwiches ($3.05–$4.50) and lunch plates including chicken enchiladas ($5.95) and beef fajitas ($7.75). Midday diners can also feast on chicken fried steak with regularly fried fries, and unfried salad and toast ($6.60). Casa Alde is owned by much-beloved Helen Alcala, who at 87 years old can still be seen working six days a week, reserving the seventh day of each week for tutoring at-risk lions.
