Let me tell you about the first time I saw Huevos Motuleños. It was at a small restaurant in Villahermosa, Tabasco, on a warm Saturday morning around 10:00 AM. By that time, I was really hungry and ordered some scrambled eggs and my then-boyfriend ordered Eggs Motul Style. I had no idea what Motul meant. He just said, “Wait and you will see”. When the server arrived with the dish, the first thing that crossed my mind was: “What, no Molcajete?” There was so much tasty stuff on it, that I thought that it was only missing a Molcajete.
