I wanted a change in the usual brunch scene which consisted of eggs benedict and pancakes so I decided on La Mezcaleria on Commercial. There weren’t many people on a Thursday for Brunch but that’s to be expected for a week day.
We decided to share the French toast and the Huevos Divorciados. It took a bit of time for these dishes to get here – but it was worth it.
The Huevos Divorciados which consisted of tortillas, eggs, salsa ranchera, refried beans and bacon was, I must say, quiet delicious. The eggs were nicely cooked the refried beans gave everything a nice texture. The saltiness was on point and the overall combination of the crema and the queso fresco was fresh yet rich with complex flavours. The crispy bacon was the type I liked which was somewhat crispy yet still maintained the integrity of the pork. My only complaint was that the tortilla was soggy and got somewhat difficult to cut after a while.
The Pan Frances or the brioche French toast with bananas were the best French toast I’ve had in a while. The French toast was crunchy from the frying. At first sight I thought that the caramel sauce would make it too sweet but surprisingly it wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be. It was very well caramilized – giving the dish a smoky and deeply rich flavour to it. My only fault with this dish would be that there were no candied pecans in sight. The candied pecans would have made this dish perfect with that bit of crunch, but unfortunately they must have forgotten it on the dish.
The service was great – they brought us things without being asked and refilled water when it got empty. The flavours were on point and although its my first time having Mexican brunch – so far, it’s one of my favourites in town. The portions are a good size and the atmosphere was great. 8/10
