I've been to Colibri a number of times for dinner because my usual hotel for work travel is nearby. Colibri has never disappointed me, so I knew it would be a solid place to brunch with the Oros.
The ambiance is somewhat typical of an accessible Mexican restaurant. But the food is much better than typical.
Bottomless mimosa ($10).
Complimentary housemade corn tortillas.
So hot and so fresh and so good with the three different salsas!
Carnitas and salsa ranchera omelet ($10).
Mr. Monkey and Mr. Oro both ordered this meaty masterpiece. Yummeh!
Huevos benedictinos estilo Michoacan -- two corn shells with refried beans, carnitas, two poached eggs, and chipotle Hollandaise sauce served with house potatoes ($12).
Mrs. Oro noshed on this lovely offering. Very creative and very tasty.
Chilaquiles rojos -- housemade corn tortilla chips served with Roja tomato-chipotle sauce, shredded chicken, chopped onions, sour cream, fresh cheese, and topped with two eggs over easy ($14).
I enjoyed my chilaquiles greatly. But, really, I don't think I've ever met a chilaquiles dish that I didn't like.
Churros rellenos with cajeta caramel cream and dulce de leche ice cream ($8).
Just when you thought things couldn't get better, this lands on the table! Yes!
Caballeros pobres -- homemade sweet pastry baked and slightly fried and served with piloncillo-cinnamon honey ($8).
Another fun treat for all of us.
Colibri is tried-and-true. You'll have a satisfying meal, day or night.
