The Weekend Brunch At Malo

[caption id=“” align=“aligncenter” width=“500” caption=“Egg Tostadas (green onion, tomato & cheese scrambled eggs with black beans, tortillas & Oaxacan sauce)”][/caption] There’s another brunch option in town - and it’s at Malo in Silver Lake. If tequila cocktails with your eggy entree and sides sound like a choice accompaniment, this brunch will be worth your trek. For one, Malo has that spicy burnt habanero salsa that always does a solid for your pre-appetizer chip indulgence. (Because I’ll be the first to admit I’m always the one at the table who eats too many chips and has to take her meal home.) [caption id=“” align=“alignright” width=“240” caption=“Bloody Maria”][/caption] Try ordering your Bloody Maria “extra spicy” and the bar will oblige. (I did. Twice.) In between the Bloody Marias was a Medicina Latina for that smokey kick (El Jimador Reposado, fresh ginger, agave nectar & lime w/Mezcal mist) as well as a La Paloma Fizz (made with El Jimador Reposado, fresh grapefruit juice, lime juice & grapefruit bitters) for that refreshing-but-sour morning cocktail. Or if you’re feeling the wake-up coffee more, go for the Malo Cafe, with Grand Centenario Anejo, Kahlua dark creme de cacao & coffee and topped with whipped cream. Delicioso! [caption id=“” align=“alignleft” width=“180” caption=“Tres Leches Cake”][/caption] Favorite dishes of mine included the Egg Tostada - with the eggs still wet, the way I like it. I even found myself appreciating one of their Vegan Breakfast Burrito, which was simple yet delicious enough, with tofu, potatoes, spinach, pinto beans, mushrooms, avocado and pico de gallo - though maybe the trick was that I dumped a whole bunch of red-orange salsa on it. ;) The Tres Leches cake was my favorite dessert. The slice was perfectly wet but not soggy and oh-so-milky. If you’re feeling like an all-around sweet breakfast, try the Mango & Banana French Toast, made with sweet bolillos, warm piloncillo and cinnamon syrup. If you’re looking for a little twist on your typical ham & eggs brunch, Malo’s a good place to start. The tequila in your morning cocktail will spice things up in many different ways - so your lazy weekend day will be sure to get kicked off to a great start.
