First Taste: Boqueria Brunch

Initial thoughts:
  • Food: Twists on Spanish classics
  • Drinks: Banderilla Maria is amazing!  Imagine: Spicy Guindilla Bloody Mary Mix, Tito’s Vodka, Olive and Pickled Vegetable Skewer with Chorizo.
  • Service:  Exceptional.  Our server was super knowledgeable and made great recommendations.
  • Would I go back?  Yes.
Boqueria’s weekend brunch menu offers a diverse array of twists on Spanish classics.  We were pleasantly surprised with the selection of delicious dishes. Tortilla EspaƱola is a traditional Spanish omelet of eggs, confit potatoes and Spanish onions, served with salad and pan con tomate.  I really liked the mixed greens that came with the dish.

Gambas al Ajillo features large shrimp, with garlic and Guindilla pepper in olive oil.  The best part is soaking up all of the yummy sauce with the bread.

The Butifarra amb Mongetes is not to be missed.  The Spachowski pork sausage is served with the creamiest baby white beans and a fried egg, salsa verde, red onion, and cilantro.  This is a must-try!

My favorite dish was the Huevos Benedictinos.  It is basically a Spanish spin on Eggs Benedict, but it is so freaking good!!
The Cochinillo al Horno is a roast suckling pig, fried egg, oven roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables with mojo rojo.

The Nutella-stuffed Churros Rellenos sprinkled with cinnamon sugar are the perfect ending to the meal. 
Boqueria is now one of my new favorite brunch spots.  I hope to be back soon for more heavenly Spanish dishes.

Brunch is served from 11am-4pm every Saturday and Sunday.
