This time I was out with my feminist peeps on the final day of the NOW MidSouth Regional Conference. We headed to Mid-City for brunch at Santa Fe Restaurant. Chosen primarily for the $1 mimosas, the $3 Bloody Mary was a pretty good sell, too.
They were a little stingy with the jalapeno muffins--we had 12 people there and they only brought three small bowls! Other than that, the wait staff was pretty quick with refills of drinks, coffee and water and to check in with us.
I had the Breakfast Burrito with scrambled eggs, mushroom, corn, black beans, potatoes and poblano pepper sauce. With a layer of cheese melted over the top, it was a little unwieldy for eating it by hand, so I had to be proper and use a knife and fork. The burrito was very good and not being bogged down with rice was a treat.
I ate samples off of a couple people's plates. The shrimp and grits was very good--creamy with just a hint of heat. The Huevos Rancheros were very tasty and the layers of flavors melded together perfectly.
We arrived early so we had the place to ourselves for a while and could kick back with wide ranging dialogue on all sorts of issues. They do have an outdoor area and, on a day as beautiful as today, I can definitely see spending a long afternoon there, with a brunch that goes to dinner time!
