La Mezcaleria Vancouver | Mexican Breakfast and Brunch

La Mezcaleria Vancouver | Mexican Breakfast and Brunch

La Mezcaleria Vancouver on Commercial Drive offers traditional Mexican food. This Mexican Cantina is not only about tacos (as so many people automatically relates to) but also about dishes that mirros traditional Mexican recipes, Mezcal and Tequila flights. But what about Mexican breakfast and brunch? We were recently invited by the fine folks at La Mezcal to sample a rich, invigorating and spicy morning meal!

Don Pimm 10: Serrano infused tequlia, Pimm’s No. 1, grapefruit pop, ginger beer, cucumber, lemon and agave. If you know me, my knees gets weak at ginger beer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”14927″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]

Michelada 10: Pacifico, petroleo, salsa huichol, cilantro, clamato, and tajin rim. Add a shot of Oro Mezcal for five bucks – we highly recommended! This light fizzy Caesar goes down so easy, you’ll want to order seconds!

Chilaquiles 12: house made tortilla chips smothered in mole sauce (deep, dark and delicious Oaxacan style) and topped with crema, queso fresco, sliced white onion, and beans. Top it with a poached egg, pork belly or braised chicken for protein. Chilaquiles is a great sharing appetizer where the sauce simmers over crispy tortilla triangles until softened.

It is served with seasonal greens and crispy hashbrowns. We really liked the citrus fresh flavors of the cured salmon. It truly gave it a vibrant color.

On the other hand, the table next to us, all five of them ordered Huevos Divorciados aka divorced eggs. If you check their Insta feed, you will notice a flood of divorced eggs also. Whether or not these eggs reached a maturity age for marital status is worth a try!

Huevos Divorciados: Two corn tortillas, two sunny side up free-range eggs, one topped with salsa ranchera and one topped with salsa verde, divorced by refried beans, and finished with crema, queso fresco, cilantro and crispy bacon. Add a third wheel of say extra free-range egg for two bucks; hash browns $3; extra bacon $3; or guacamole $3.

Served in an Aztec volcanic rock with fresh onions, cilantro, pickled habanero red onions and a side of corn tortillas. The meat is tender, moist and marries well with La Mezcaleria house salsa. My favorite being the linger deep heat of pineapple habaneros peppers.

El Barrio Restaurante Latino, East Vancouver (Sunshine Community)

El Barrio Restaurante Latino, East Vancouver (Sunshine Community)

A large part of my childhood was spent in the sunrise community of East Hastings. Drugs and prostitutions infest the once friendly neighborhood. I used to hate the stench every time I had to help my mother out in her garment factory on East Hastings […]
