One of our New Year’s resolutions every January involves procrastinating less.
So we’re getting ahead of the curve by starting our healthy eating pledge a couple weeks early. In fact, we kicked things off last weekend with a tasty brunch at Lala’s Mexican Café, the health-conscious sister restaurant to Jorge’s Tex-Mex in One Arts Plaza.
With a focus on all-organic ingredients—as well as no GMOs, processed foods, refined sugars or artificial additives—the fast-casual concept boasts all those zesty Mexican flavors you crave with far less guilt. That commitment to quality and deliciousness carries over to brunch, too.
Available Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the small brunch menu features breakfast tacos filled with Vital Farms eggs, cheese and your choice of turkey chorizo, spinach and poblano, or quinoa-based vegan chorizo. Or skip the tortilla and get a bowl loaded with two poached eggs, black beans, spinach, avocado, sweet potatoes and spice verde salsa atop brown rice, quinoa or riced broccoli. Rounding out the egg dish options is the breakfast chile relleno stuffed with scrambled eggs and your choice of filling, topped with red, green or queso blanco sauces.
Even everybody’s favorite brunch menu staple, the mimosa, gets a better-for-you makeover here with your choice of tangy blood orange juice or jugo verde, a housemade blend of nopales, kiwi, parsley, cucumber, pineapple, spinach, and celery.
Everything here comes packed with so much flavor you’d probably never know you were eating healthy if we didn’t tell you.
And that’s worth toasting to any time of year!
