El Mestizo announced Thursday that they will begin offering weekend brunch beginning 5/22/10. Highlights of the breakfast menu will include “huevos a la mexicana, huevos rancheros and homemade tamales with atole”. Atole is a porridge-like drink that typically includes masa (corn hominy flour), water, piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), cinnamon, vanilla and sometimes chocolate or fruit.
They will also offer chilaquiles. Chilaquiles are crispy triangles of corn tortillas that are bathed in a red sauce and served with thinly sliced onions, queso fresco, cilantro and sometimes eggs. They will offer the brunch from 8 am to 12 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
El Mestizo joins CDNews Sponsor Twilight Exit in launching a brunch offering this year. Twilight Exit’s brunch is available from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
