Common in Venezuela and Colombia but at ease in a Cuban diner, too, perico resembles a Western omelet that's gone all to pieces.
A more charming way to think of it is as a parakeet, the literal meaning of its Spanish name. Puerto Sagua's perico (peh-Ree-co, $9.25) — one of the showier species — includes egg, ham, turkey, green pepper, tomato, and onion. On the side was a crackly Cuban loaf (not shown) that had been split, buttered, and then toasted under a sandwich press, and cafe (hot) con leche (warm).
Also shown, from a long-ago visit: a fried grouper sandwich (now $8.95), whose very light, flaky, mild flesh was well-served by a little Batey hot sauce.
