A-Tooch recently found a cheap brunch spot worthy enough to blog about. In the overcrowded NYC market, these are hard to come by.
Nestled all the way over on Avenue C (er…) is Matilda, a trendy looking spot that brands itself as “Tusc-Mex.” How could you go wrong with Tuscan Italian and Mexican food combined? Right, never. From the start, the two distinct cuisine combinations were there — we ordered fresh guacamole that had a heaping portion of basil in it. A great mix that honestly, I’m surprised I have never tried before.
The $10.50 brunch deal includes your entree, a drink (my mimosa was tasty) and a giant cup of coffee. And REALLY delicious coffee at that.
I had a sweet tooth that day so I went with the enchilada dolce — tortillas stuffed with sweet mascarpone cheese, rolled and topped with fruit (plenty of mangoes on mine) and a berry/maple syrup combination. Really tasty but not so photo worthy, so you’ll have to take my word for it. Another menu fav from guests at my table was the uova in camica — a modified huevos rancheros — tortilla with chorizo, poached eggs and a chipotle cream sauce on top.
I had been hearing good things about this spot for a while, and now I’m eager to go check out what dinner has to offer 🙂
