Originating in rural Mexico, Huevos Rancheros is a second, heavier breakfast offered to ranchers after a long morning of herding. Today, the dish has migrated to plates all across US brunch menus, where we sop up refried beans, smokey tomato sauce, and runny egg yolk with fury.

What to do on an average, ho-hum weekend in the Bay? Head east for a quick game of petanque, a knock-your-socks-off Mexican meal, and a 21st century take on Hamlet, under the stars.

But such is the story of Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo, the duo that launched Fréda Salvador this past August.
