Breakfast in Houston

Staying at the Derek and need a Mexican breakfast for Monday & Tues. Anyone have a
favorite? We're eating at Feast on Sunday night and at Hugo's on Monday but also love
Mexican Breakfasts. We won't go to the place on Montrose, as it was just awful the last
time we went. Anthing new?

Thanks Houston "Hounds

  1. How far are you willing to drive?

    How "authentic" do you like your Mexican breakfasts?

    Chilaquiles & molletes?

    Scrambled eggs and machacado and panes dulces?

    Huevos rancheros and frijoles charros?

    North-American-style "breakfast tacos" with eggs, chorizo, cheese, potatoes & salsa?

    1. James, I don't want to drive to the original Ninfa's on Navigation, but will go a ways. We like everything you mentioned as well as migas and menudo. We like "breakfast tacos" the least,
      but scarf up salsa by the bucketful with a tortilla as big as a hubcap smeared with refritos.
      Do you know of a place? Thanks

        Try La Guadalupana on Dunlavy. Great small place with supernice owners. They have a small bakery section and you get free coffee with a hint of cinnamon in it.

          I have not lived in Houston very long, so don't know as many spots as the long-timers, but I've always had good luck with the breakfasts (and other meals) at La Tapatia. It's a local chain with several locations.

          If this link works, here's the breakfast menu:

            Wanted to add that we also go to Taqueria Arandas for 'tipico' Mexican breakfasts. Also a local chain with several Houston locations.

            Their authentic Mexican food is great, but would caution you against ordering TexMex there.

            In fact, we've found that most of the Mexican restaurants in town that are targeting a Mexican clientele seem to have pretty wretched TexMex, so don't go there thinking you'll get great "yellow cheese and chili gravy" dishes.
