Think you've had eggs every way they come? How about fried eggs with stewed chillies, crema, corn, black beans, guajillo, queso fresco and pickled vegetables in a soft taco? Or with grilled queso fresco, bone marrow, stewed chicharron, chorizo, frijoles, avocado, salsa and tortillas? Hotel Jesus has launched a weekend breakfast menu to shake up your morning routine. Instead of that bacon and egg roll, sub in a plate of toasted tortilla chips, salsa verde, salsa roja, cotija cheese, crema, micro coriander and a fried egg.
Moving away from eggs, if you like to live in the danger zone between sweet and savoury, there's a melon ceviche of watermelon, rockmelon and honeydew with cherry tomatoes, coconut, avocado and tomatillo. And if yours is a plant-based diet, order a bowl of Aztec grains, consisting of kale, bulgur, black beans, quinoa, pumpkin, pepitas, corn, amaranth, and citrus salsa.There are even five special items for your small humans, like a Mexican ham and cheese toasty, and what's a Mexican feat without a cold glass of sweet, spiced horchata?
Hotel Jesus is now open for breakfast and lunch on weekends. Sat 8am-4.30pm; Sun 9am-4.30pm
