If you haven’t noticed, but we want to make weekend brunch a regular thing. Brunch is quite popular in Ann Arbor and in addition to the many breakfast restaurants in the area, there are many non-breakfast restaurants that are offering brunch either on Saturday or Sunday and sometimes both. So be prepared for a lot of posts about brunch in Ann Arbor!
I got to pick this time and I went with Sabor Latino, a restaurant I’ve eaten at several times in the past but didn’t realize they offered brunch until I saw an ad in this month’s Ann Arbor Observer. They have a nice offering of breakfast items in addition to their lunch menu. Fair warning, if you like sweet breakfasts skip Sabor Latino as all of their items are savory. I really liked having chips and salsa with my coffee while we waited for our entrees. The chips and salsa at Sabor Latino are excellent. The chips are nice and thin and the salsa has really good flavor with the right amount of heat (at least for me!).
I ordered the pupusas breakfast. A pupusa is a Salvadoran corn cake stuffed with cheese. The pupusas breakfast includes two pupusas with two eggs any style (I ordered poached) topped with more cheese and rachero sauce. You can also get meat or vegetables in lieu of eggs. I really liked this breakfast, the pupusas were very tasty and had great flavor as did the ranchero sauce. It was also very filling. It’s served with black beans and white rice and I barely touched either as the main dish filled me up.
Going with the theme of the last few breakfast/brunches we’ve had lately, Dave tried the huevos rancheros. He like them more than the huevos rancheros at Zingerman’s Roadhouse, but he still like those at Angelo’s best (at least so far!). The huevos rancheros at Sabor Latino is served with soft corn tortillas, while this might be more authentic and traditional, both Dave and I prefer it when the eggs are served on crispy corn tortillas. Dave’s entree was served with black beans and Mexican-style rice.
I’m still thinking about the pupusas breakfast so I know we’ll be back to Sabor Latino for brunch once we try the rest of the restaurants that we have on our list!
