Head to Rockville Centre to brunch with added flavor. Mesita introduced Viva La Brunch Sundays in March, inviting customers to dine with Mexican vibes. From 11am to 4pm, patrons can indulge as a DJ entertains with salsa and Top 40 hits. Events and Marketing Director Jessica Matarese revealed which dishes have customers going back to the Mexican restaurant for a festive Sunday.
What’s brunch without pancakes? Just because Mesita is a Mexican restaurant doesn’t mean this favorite is left out of the mix. The restaurant is spicing up the dish by topping them with warm Agave syrup and powdered sugar.
Mesita customers can order table-side guacamole anytime of day, but during brunch the options get creative. Take the fresh fruit guacamole. The recipe calls for strawberries, blueberries and brown sugar to be mixed into traditional chunky avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro and jalapeño with fresh lime. “It’s to die for,” said Matarese. The second option is an egg guacamole with hard boiled eggs mixed into the regular guacamole.
Mesita French toast
Whip out the camera before chowing down. Mesita French Toast, topped with vanilla butter, cinnamon, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and piloncillo, is just as photogenic as it’s delicious. “It’s a really colorful dish that pops right off the table,” Matarese said.
Mesita customers have loved the tacos long before the brunch menu was introduced. On Sundays, customers can choose between four: De Carne (grilled skirt steak, grilled asparagus, pico de gallo, queso fresco, chihuahua cheese, corn tortilla), Pollo Asado (marinated grilled chicken breast, charred onions, poblano rajas, cilantro, tomatillo avocado creama, chihuahua cheese, corn tortilla), De Huevos (scrambled eggs, poblano peppers, chorizo, fresh avocado, queso fresco, ranchero sauce, flour tortilla) and Vegetales (roasted corn, zucchini, sliced red onions, pico de gallo, avocado, quest fresco). They come three to an order.
Don’t be fooled into thinking these are typical waffles. Mesita whips these favorites up with homemade churro batter. They are also topped with cinnamon sugar, light caramel and strawberries enhancing the taste.
