BEST MEXICAN BRUNCH Phoenix 2007 - Barrio Café
Indeed, we still think Barrio Café is worthy of every "Best of" we've given it. But brunch here is still 'til now, anyway an unsung pleasure, with distinctive dishes you won't find anywhere else in town.
The crepa de chorizo is a dreamy concoction, with spinach, spicy sausage, and queso fresco rolled up in a hollandaise-covered crepe, while the pastel de calabazas con queso, a veggie-stuffed omelet slathered in spicy tomatillo sauce, will wake your taste buds right up. And if that's not enough of a morning boost, try Barrio Café's tequila-soaked version of the bloody Mary, the sangrita. Now that's our kind of eye-opener.
