I don’t even know where to begin. The décor? The authentic food? The friendly employees? When you walk into Brissa & Co. you immediately feel happy. The bright colors envelop the air and warm your heart. The menu makes you wish you could stay all day and eat…or drink. Maybe start with a breakfast burrito, machaca con huevo (shredded beef grilled with two eggs, pico, and your choice of fresh-made tortillas), or a horchata frappe (they have a full coffee bar brimming with Mexican-inspired beverages). The decision will be even tougher come lunch or dinnertime! From pozole, taco salads, and quesadillas, to street tacos, burritos, bowls, tamales, and margaritas, the options are endless. After much deliberation (and holding up the line), I went with the steak fajita bowl—filled with flavorful carne asada, red rice, pinto beans, veggies, sour cream, guacamole, and queso fresco. Talk about muy bueno. My husband loved his pollo asado burrito that was chock-full of grilled chicken, cheese, red rice, and pinto beans. Now let’s talk bakery! The conchas—cooked inside a pink, concha-shaped oven that you have to see to believe—are as colorful as the restaurant. A streusel-like shell gives way to a sweet, doughy roll that’s seriously scrumptious. The extensive selection of sweets also includes flan, cookies, cocadas, cakes, and more. I have a new goal in life, and it’s to try everything on Brissa’s mouthwatering menu.
