If you’re aching for the ultimate authentic Mexican brunch, along with chiles toreados (chargrilled jalapeños) and a rich, Mexican coffee, look no further and stop by La Mexicana for the best service and the most perfectly cinnamon-dusted churros you have ever eaten! Just, whatever you do, don’t try to eat here all by yourself, you’re going to need some hungry bellies with all this deliciousness!
A little bit of history
La Mexicana started as a little grocery store in Montrose and in 1982 it was turned into a full service restaurant-bar. Today, it is still run successfully by the Treviño Family that have one goal: to provide good food. Because everything is “made with love” and with fresh ingredients you can definitely taste the authentic Mexican flavors and fall in love with the vivacious-colored dishes.
The cappuccino we ordered was foamy and rich–just to our liking. What really wowed us were these traditional cinnamon cookies that melt in your mouth and that, according to my hubby, are perfect for dunking.
Service was great, the food tasted fresh and seasoned. I would totally come back here and try out more of their dishes. The day we net was right before memorial Weekend so it was not so busy. My friend advised to get there expecting to wait for a 25-40 minute wait on a normal-Sunday brunch day. And you know what?! It would be totally worth it. If you try it out, let me know!
