Feast upon Mexican favourties like chilaquiles, chamorro and molletes starting this weekend when el Santo joins the ranks of other New Westminster restaurants offering brunch.
The popular downtown eatery announced this week that it’ll be open for brunch every weekend from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from now on.
“Mexico has such a rich diversity of breakfast foods that we wanted to bring back some of them to share with our diners in the Lower Mainland,” said executive chief Sam Fabbro.
Restaurant goers can expect to see a variety of breakfast items on the new menu, including chilaquiles, pieces of fried tortilla drenched in salsa and topped with pork belly or smoked mushrooms; chamorro, an entire chili-braised ham hock served with tortillas and rice; and huevos con crema, eggs baked in cream served with sliced bread covered in refried beans, melted cheese and fresh pico de gallo (also known as molletes), according to a press release.
“Our goal with this menu is to introduce diners to something new and to give them another way to experience some of their favourite brunch items,” Fabbro said.
Brunch fans will recognize some items, like eggs benedict and French toast, but you can expect the folks at el Santo will have put their own spin on the traditional breakfast items.
el Santo is located at 680 Columbia St. For more information, visit elsanto.ca.
