Brunch at Oxomoco

This past Memorial Day Mr. T and I opted out of travel for a glorious "staycation" in the city.  Since most people head to the beach, we were left with quiet streets and a multitude of open reservations to great spots like Oxomoco; the gorgeous, sun soaked Mexican spot in Greenpoint that received a Michelin star last year.  I don't understand every aspect of the Michelin award process, but I have to assume the Spring Pea Tlayuda had something to do with that honer.  

This beautiful round of masa was stretched thin, layered with creamy quesillo, salsa cruda, mint, serrano and scallion.  It was slightly spicy yet refreshing; like biting into a the perfect garden vegetable pizza.

For a classic Mexican egg dish order the Chilaqulies Rojos, a crunchy mound of tortillas and egg dressed with warm red salsa, queso fresco and crema (pictured here without cilantro).

But something a bit more intense I would suggest the Hamburguesa Pambazo; a rich patty of dry aged beef loaded with smoked onions, queso asado and salsa macha.  This sandwich was a flavor beast just dripping with that thick layer of spicy peanut chili sauce.

Finish things off with a delicious pink drink in the form of a frozen Paloma, whose beautiful rose hues not only make for the perfect Instapic but also taste amazing too.
