Mexican brunch suggestions

aks123 Aug 21, 2008 11:39 AM

My friends and I are having a hankering for a great mexican brunch. Looking for some suggestions below 14th street. I've heard of and am wondering about Lupe's, Barrio Chino...but would love suggestions. I know Tree offers Huevos Rancheros. Thoughts, insights? much obliged.

    I just had a pretty tasty brunch burrito at Maracas, on Greenwich Ave bet. 6th/7th Aves (around 10th St.). They also have huevos rancheros (didn't try) and other Mexican brunch items, along with a few regular items like pancakes, omelettes, and burgers. It was $15 with AYCD and definitely a nice brunch imo.

      you can also try dos caminos on houston. they have outdoor seating so if the weather is nice it is a perfect spot for brunch.

        la palapa st mark's is very good and often slept on. huevos tapatios are great w/ pickled red onions, chorizo, avocado and grilled nopales. crema on 17 st has very good chilaquiles.

          Second La Palapa.
          Had a great dinner at Itzocan Cafe last weekend and am rather curious about the brunch menu too.

            are you looking specifically for huevos ranchos?
            If so there was a post recently about that.
