|The Galapago Islands are the inspiration for an Ecuadorian restaurant in Hackensack.|
I had breakfast again at Galapagos Restaurant in Hackensack, this time ordering the bolon I saw another customer eating on Tuesday.
What I thought was a mound is actually a ball of green plantains and a crumbly white cheese that are deep fried and served with a piquant, chopped salad of tomato, red onion and cilantro.
It's a little smaller than a softball, and makes a tasty and filling breakfast. I asked for mine without the usual pork. You also can get it with eggs or rice and beans on the side.
I was liberal with the homemade and bottled Mexican hot sauces on the counter.
The bill was $4, but I forgot cash and the restaurant only accepts credit cards for meals of $10 or more, so the owner asked me to return with the money later today.
I'm planning to go for dinner with my wife and son and try a seafood rice dish that looks like an Ecuadorian paella.
Galapagos Restaurant, 222 Main St., Hackensack; 201-342-2222.
