Mexican Morning Morsels: Colibri

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).
With the purchase of an entree, your mimosa made with fresh-squeezed orange juice is bottomless! Chug-a-lug!

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.


  1. Bottomless mimosas? Be still, my heart.

  2. You had me at bottomless mimosas . . . until I saw the churro, died of happiness, and came back to life just in anticipation of one day visiting this magical restaurant.

  3. I liked but didn't love Colibrí, and I think I'm the only one to ever say that! I went last-minute with a big group on a Saturday night, so I think I was too hungry to actually taste any of my food before wolfing it down. I'll have to give it a second chance next trip.

  4. Ditto Trish. Bottomless mimomos for $10 = gimme. Can you tell I'm drunk.? I am.
