Let's Do Brunch at Mendoza's
This was my first visit to Mendoza's since the Grand Opening and we decided on Brunch. Who doesn't love brunch? Combined meals FTW! I've been to a few brunches and they all seem to have the same stuff...time to see what they have to offer.
It was small, but don't let that deceive you! There was the standard omelette bar and roast beast station, but what's in between those stations is what makes this brunch buffet stand out. The platter of roasted veggies caught my eye; peppers, zucchini, eggplant with a light coating of olive oil and a dash of seasoning. I went back 3 times just for this. They have your standard garden and caesar salads but they also had fancy salad; berries, goat cheese, nuts and housemade dressings. Tasty! In addition to omelettes, they also had scrambled eggs and candied bacon. You read it...Candied BACON. There was also a spicy Seafood Paella and the best Italian Wedding Soup I've ever had. It's made in house by an Italian Chef, so you KNOW It's good and authentic.
They had house made Shirley Temples to drink and a delightful fruit and cake tray for dessert. The Shirley Temple did not look like the ones I've had in the past, but it tasted just like it; a taste of childhood! The fruit was fresh and so were the cakes. They also offered us a complimentary mimosa. Mmmmm.
One tip: Hang on to your napkin! The servers get in the zone when they're picking up your empty plates and tend to snag your napkin along with it! They're used to clearing the tables completely, so it's understandable. You can always ask for another if yours goes missing!
The service was pleasant and efficient, like my last visit. The plates were cleared quickly and the food was refilled with fresh regularly. The chef at the omelette bar was the same chef that made the soup. She answered all of my questions about the soup and other items in the buffet. It was nice to talk to the actual chef! She was great!
Another great visit to Mendoza's. Glad to see the Grand Opening was just the beginning. I will be back to try their main course! With good quality food like this, how can I not go back??
Make a date, go to Mendoza's!
