Everyone loves brunch. Brunch is the greatest meal of all time. And if you’re bored with the typical brunch fare, there is no food quite as delicious as Mexican breakfast food. Mexican brunches are a reflection of its festive culture - with bright, vibrant dishes that are hearty and absolutely mouthwatering.
The thing about brunch in Mexico is that nobody seems to call it that – weekends are simply for eating breakfast late, or sliding into lunch without noticing it. In Mexico City, you can find brunches from traditional Mexican breakfast items like Huevos Rancheros, Chilaquiles to pancakes and mimosas and everything in between.
Here’s a round-up of our all-time favourite Mexican brunch items:
Breakfast Nachos. Yes, it’s a thing that would blow your mind. Fried tortilla chips smothered in red or green salsa, a slightly thinner sour cream called crema, cheese, and finished with a fried egg on top.
Mexico on a plate. A classic Mexican breakfast and the perfect vegetarian dish - fried eggs served on hot corn tortillas and smothered in salsa. At Super Loco Robertson Quay, we add frijoles which is refried beans, crema and a dollop of guacamole to our version of Huevos Rancheros. Because we can all use with more guac in our lives.
The infamous enchiladas. It’s basically tucking all your favourite foods and rolling them in a fluffy corn tortilla, and usually cooked differently in every home or restaurant but equally delicious! We fill ours with chicken tinga, which is shredded chicken in a sauce made from tomatoes, chipotle chilis in adobo and onions. Topped with a free-range poached egg, it’s one that will leave you craving for more.
A staple in every Mexican meal, tacos are eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper. And when your first meal of the day is tacos, you know you’re doing things right. Especially when it’s filled with scrambled eggs, chorizo, bacon, cheese, jalapeño pico and bbq sauce. Hits the spot every single time.
Imagine that a sandwich and a taco got married and had a kid. That kid would be a Torta and a torta is a Mexican sandwich. Tortas come in all sorts of varieties and topped with anything you can imagine - refried beans, creamy avocado, cheeses and meats such as chicken, steak, pulled pork, and can also be made vegetarian. It’s big, incredibly messy and a life-changing experience for many.
There’s no hero cocktail when it comes to a boozy Mexican brunch. When in doubt, a refreshing jug of lime margarita or sangria could never go wrong. If you’re feeling adventurous, the Mango Maria on our brunch menu made of mezcal, sangrita, lemon and tajin is a tropical gift that keeps on giving.
Cool non-alcoholic drinks made with fruits and can usually be made from one or more of your favourite fruits, or even vegetables. Watermelon, passion fruit, white peach, banana, cucumber, apple - we have the whole shebang.
