I'm an admitted omelet addict. If the egg dish is offered on a menu, I'll almost always order it. And I have found my new favorite: Starliner Diner's Mofongo Omelet, a frequent breakfast special.

I'm an admitted omelet addict. If the egg dish is offered on a menu, I'll almost always order it. And I have found my new favorite: Starliner Diner's Mofongo Omelet, a frequent breakfast special. It's got ham, bacon, pepper jack and fried plantains. That's right, plantains in an omelet! If anyone can find novel uses for that caramelized treat, it's this Cuban-leaning spot. The sweet-salty combination works beautifully here. And the two sauces on top, a smoked chile sauce and a green onion dressing, are just icing on the cake. Like all of Starliner's omelets, this one comes with home fries and Cuban toast.

I also recently got to try Starliner's Chile Relleno appetizer for the first time. Sort of like a gourmet jalapeno popper, it's a breaded, roasted poblano pepper that's stuffed with cheese, cilantro and green onions, served with smoked chile sauce. Very tasty.
