Tres Gatos' Marcos Sanchez on Favorite Greasy Spoons

"As far as greasy spoons go, I'm an old fan of the Mass Ave Diner in Cambridge. Spent many Sunday mornings at their bar nursing a hangover. I usually order the huevos rancheros or the gallo pinto — it's rice and beans with two eggs, queso fresco, usually a tortilla, and plantains.

One of my top sandwich places in town has got to be Michael's Deli. On top of the best Reuben in town they have a killer corned beef club. I order it with chips and wash it all down with a root beer. Their corned beef has more fat and is just better tasting than some of the other shops around." — Marcos Sanchez, executive chef of Tres Gatos in Jamaica Plain, on his favorite greasy spoons.
