Executive Chef Deborah Schneider of solita Tacos & Margaritas in Huntington Beach will be introducing some delicious new menu items to solita’s weekend brunch menu. Brunch at solita is offered every Saturday and Sunday from 11am until 3pm. In addition, solita will also serve their brunch on Memorial Day, Monday May 25th. “The success of our weekend brunches here at solita has inspired us to dig deeper into Baja cuisine,” explained Chef Deborah, who recently published her sixth cookbook, Salsas and Moles. “We’re excited to introduce Machaca to our brunch menu. What makes our machaca unique is that it is oak-smoked, cooked in a rich sauce, and then shredded”.
Machaca, of course, is shredded beef and it makes an appearance in several of the new dishes. The mad scramble comes with either machaca, grilled chicken or chorizo, scvrambled with eggs, spinach, onions and cheese and then topped with crema and salsa fresca. The mad scramble is served with one side dish and warm tortillas. The namesake machaca and eggs uses the same slow-cooked and oak smoked beef, sautéeing it along with onions, scrambled eggs and fresh tomatoes. It is then topped with melted Mexican cheeses, cilantro and avocado and served with one side and warm tortillas.
Other new brunch items include the delicious-looking brunch potato ‘nachos’, a big platter of fried breakfast potatoes, onions and ranchera salsa that is topped with melted cheeses, chopped bacon or chorizo, scrambled eggs, crema and salsa. For the little ones, there is a kid’s breakfast burritothat includes scrambled eggs and melted cheeses, all stuffed into a kid-sized tortilla and served with ketchup.
The new additions will be offered alongside solita’s regular brunch menu which includes favorites like the Breakfast Burrito and Berry Cinnamon Bread Pudding. Those looking to liven up their brunch experience will enjoy Mixologist Colin Pflugradt’s lineup of specialty brunch cocktails including Fresh Fruit Mimosas, Frozen Sangrias and Bucket Service on beverages including Rainbow Fruit or Regular Mimosas, Ice-Cold Beer, and Micheladas, which allow guests to completely customize their brunch beverage experience.
