Sometimes I wake up craving Mexican food. More specifically chips and salsa, with refried beans. I can’t really explain it as it only happens once in a blue moon. It is kind of like my 8th wonder of my foodie world. So last weekend, it happened, the random morning Mexican craving, and luckily it was fulfilled at La Hacienda on Brookside.
My husband and I were late getting up and around this particular morning. We were looking for brunch and ended up making our way to Brookside. Having heard good things about La Hacienda, we decided to head in that direction. It was now 11 o’clock, more lunch-ish than brunch-ish, but whatever. As we were walking up we noticed they actually open at 8 am. Breakfast Mexican – my new best friend!
I scanned the menu and thought about ordering one of the delicious sounding breakfast items such as Huevos Rancheros, but decided to go with the Carnitas instead. Their version of carnitas is delicious pork that has been seared to perfection. I choose to have mine served with corn tortillas and enjoyed making my own perfectly lovely soft tacos.
Eric decided to order the Chorizo breakfast which was a scrambled dish full of mexican sausage, eggs, onions and peppers. The sausage wasn’t too spicy and the eggs were the perfect texture. He tried out their house potatoes on the side and thought they were delicious as well.
Overall, we really enjoyed La Hacienda. The service was fabulous, and the food delicious. Eric and I both said we couldn’t wait to go back, during our meal! Now that is saying a lot. I must admit we were not a fans of the chips and salsa, but I think we may be too picky in this department. Regardless, I will be back soon to try some more of what La Hacienda has to offer!
