Well, the chickens weren't crossing the road but strolling along the sidewalk. This sighting was enough for me to drive around the block and come to screeching halt in front of Inday's! And so glad I did.
Wife and husband team - Inday and John - are a delight. Fortunately, it was early on a Sunday morning and I was at my quiz-master best. I got all the inside information on this 6-day a week, family operation before ordering two organic eggs over medium, rice with garlic (very traditional) and longanisa (spicy sausage). I was one happy girl.
Oh, yes, add a slab of John's Grandma's coffeecake - made with fresh mango. Fresh from the oven and still warm. Didn't have room to try a piece of John's "Big Ass Chocolate-chip cookie" sitting in a pan on the counter. No time or room for a mango shake or Inday's homemade lumpia - sigh. Next visit.
Working on a Sunday (me) I wanted to stay and spend the morning just enjoying the ambiance of this little red shack and its flock of chickens. They serve breakfast and lunch six days a week (closed Monday) and a prix fixe Kamayan-style dinner where tables are draped with banana leaves and you eat with your hands - reservations are required.
Ninety miles from Sacramento, I will definitely be back! My Subaru knows the way.
