Mother’s Day Brunch @ Rosa Mexicano

The wife and I enjoyed a [tag]Mother’s Day[/tag] Brunch today at Rosa Mexicano (Lincoln Center). We’ve been to the Rosa several times all for dinner, never brunch so the oppurtunity for early afternoon mexican food was too good to pass up.

Rosa’s famed [tag]guacamole[/tag] (yes, guac before noon) – I’ve been making guacamole almost weekly for the last month, so I found Rosas a little lack luster this time around – but it is still one of the best places to go when you want someone else to make your guacamole.

I can’t remember what exactly I ordered because it had quite the fancy name – but it was delicious. It had ham, tortilla chips & scrambled eggs – surrounded by a creamy poblano sauce. Quite tasty for breakfast.

The wife ordered Huevos Rancheros which were delicious as well (according to her) but a little too fancy. We’re both used to a more traditional take on Huevos Rancheros so this rendition was a little over the top. The asparagus tips really didn’t blend with the roasted tomato-habanero sauce.

Overall brunch at Rosa was excellent – but missing one key element: Pomegranate Margaritas. Those are what make dinner at Rosa Mexicano so much fun.

Happy Mother’s Day!
