Brunch Of The Week: Don’t Cry, Try Argentinian

Looking for a real change of pace from the same-old, same-old brunch fare?

Head to Chimichurri Argentinian Bistro & Bar in the Bishop Arts District and you’ll be treated to a variety of delectable dishes that go far beyond ho-hum Eggs Benedict and French toast (though you’ll find excellent versions of both).

Whether you’re visiting for brunch or any other meal here, empanadas are an absolute must.

They offer six different varieties (beef, ham and cheese, gorgonzola, lamb, mushroom and spicy beef) and we recommend getting one of each and sharing with the table (or stuffing them all in your face if you’re dining solo).

You’ll also find omelets, steak and eggs, choripan (sausages on rolls), and an incredible Argentinian French toast, a must-order for caramel lovers thanks to the dulce de leche and praline crumbles mingling with Nutella, fresh berries and cream.

The Empanada Benedict may also be one of the most unique versions in town. Don’t be mistaken, either, the empanadas used for this dish are completely different than the ones pictured above. Instead, you’ll get little dough vessels loaded with mozzarella, ham, poached eggs and hollandaise. The crispy empanada shells are a nice departure from English muffins.

Milanesas are also an Argentenian staple and you can get them brunchified (or “a caballo”), which gets any gigantic chicken cutlet topped with two sunny side eggs. They’re definitely big enough to share.

The patio’s open, too, should you want to avoid being indoors with too many people these days, so make sure to request a seat out front when reserving a table. And bring plenty of sunscreen.

Or you’ll be crying for reasons that have nothing to do with Evita.
