I literally Googled "endless brunch in Astoria" and MexiQ Kitchen & Draught was the first thing to pop up. The menu looked absolutely scrumptious, and the endless mimosa option was a definite plus.
Despite it being nearly noon, Jake and I were ushered in and seated immediately. I loved the sleek vibe of the interior, plus the juxtaposition of wood, metal and brick. The light fixtures were pretty cool, too.
My MexiQ Omelet was exactly what I wanted. The chorizo, goat cheese and pinto bean filled omelet was a wonderful blend of textures and flavors. The Mexican cream and pico de gallo added an extra creaminess to the dish that I really enjoyed. The home fries were crisp yet doughy, while the playful ketchup presentation made for some fun dunking.
"Chilaquiles is the traditional breakfast after a long night out. Crispy corn tortillas simmered in salsa verde and salsa roja, layered with pulled chicken and chorizo and topped with 2 fried eggs. We know you’ll feel better after eating this!!"
Holy crap was it good. It was nothing like I'd ever tasted. The corn tortillas looked like they'd taste soggy, but they were actually quite crispy. I didn't get to try any of the egg, but I'll take Jake's empty plate as a sign that it was pretty delicious.
So, to bring you back to the endless mimosas. Despite scarfing our food and being served quickly, nobody kicked us out. We were served a few more rounds of drinks with no questions asked. Even when the restaurant started to get busy, we moved to the bar and continued our mimosa binge.
Needless to say, I got home and immediately took a siesta. I'll also be returning to MexiQ ASAP.
