Brunch Plates at Dorado

When I tried out Dorado’s brunch last month, I merely scratched the surface with a breakfast taco and Mexican hot chocolate. Last Sunday, I returned to Dorado with one of my favorite blogger friends, Katie, who had yet to try out the brunch offerings. We met up at noon, both with empty stomachs ready for a hearty brunch. Katie ordered the Quesadilla brunch plate. The quesadilla is made with three cheeses, scrambled eggs and salsa and your choice of an optional filling. Katie chose the house-made pork chorizo. The brunch plate includes Mexican rice and beans. The great thing about Dorado is, you get a lot of good-tasting, high quality food for very little money. Her entire meal cost $6.50.

The quesadilla alone was quite large, and the sides of rice and beans make it an extremely filling meal. One of the things that both Katie and I commented on was the modest amount of cheese. People usually rave about excessive amounts of cheese but Katie and I agreed that it was nice without thick gobs of melted cheese. It also helped in allowing the other ingredients to stand out, since this was not just a cheese quesadilla. I definitely plan to try out the brunch quesadilla myself the next time around.

I opted for the Two Breakfast Tacos Plate which comes with your choice of any two tacos along with Mexican rice and beans. I chose the standard breakfast taco with scrambled egg, salsa, and guacamole, and the breakfast taco with grilled zucchini, red peppers and cotija cheese. The scrambled eggs are fluffy, the salsa tangy and the guacamole rich and creamy. Each taco is wrapped in two soft corn tortillas. You can use the second tortilla to help keep the filling contained in the taco. But I prefer to let the contents spill out and then eat them mixed with the rice and beans. It is a meal that will keep you full till dinner and costs only $6.25.

      They opened about a year ago, just down from Coolidge Corner in Brookline. I’m in Brookline usually at least twice a week and my boyfriend is obsessed with their fish tacos, so I end up going there pretty often. They are good.

  8. Love it! That was so fun….Even though I fought fullness and ate it all (yes, that’s right!) I was filled up for the entire day. Best bargain brunch out there. We’ll have to do it again soon! Hope you had a great holiday!!!
