My favorite meal of the day is brunch. Maybe it’s a Dallas thing, a girl thing, or just an everyone thing. This weekend, Colton and I were invited to a preview of brunch at Sundown at Granada. Sundown is listed on Love You More Too as one of the best restaurants for plant based diets. This is quickly becoming one of my new favorite brunch places in Dallas.
Brunch at Sundown at Granada features a farm to table menu featuring vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and specialty cocktails. There is even a garden in the back where they grow their own herbs for their dishes. The wide variety of items is sure to please everyone you bring. You can come grab brunch at Sundown at Granada every Sunday 11am-4pm.
What to drink
We started with some mimosas made with champagne and our choice of juice (orange, cranberry, and grapefruit). Mimosas and brunch go together like peanut butter and jelly. I like the sweetness from the juice mixed with the bubbles because it enhances the flavors of the food.
Sundown at Granada also has a few specialty cocktails we were able to try.
Colton loved their bloody Mary.
I had the blue nectar prickly pear margarita. If you like sweet margaritas, this one is perfect. The prickly pear puree evened out the tart perfectly. Not to mention, it’s so pretty.
What to eat
Chef Jason West cooked up some of his and the customers’ favorites. We were able to try a wide variety of what they have to offer.
The Chilaquiles were Colton and my favorite dish of the day. Think nachos for breakfast, but more deliiocus. The tortillias were topped with shredded chicken, queso, cotija cheese, salsa, chipotle cream, picked jalapenos, and cilantro from their garden.
If nachos for brunch aren’t your thing, maybe you would like a breakfast flatbread. Eggs, chorizo, mozzarello, cotija, jalapeno, onions and tomatoes top this delicious treat. The chorizo is seasoned with several spices, including cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a really unique taste.
The most popular brunch item, and the crowd favorite, is the sundown Benedict. They top a whole wheat molasses bun with shiner brisket, a poached egg and BBQ hollandaise. I am usually not an eggs Benedict fan, because I have never been crazy about hollandaise. However, this was incredible.
Lastly, we were able to try the banana foster’s french toast. I am all about sweets for breakfast and this dish does not disappoint. The banana rum sauce really adds to the flavor of the vanilla almond dipped french toast. It is served with a side of applewood smoked bacon, which perfectly balances out the sweetness.
Sundown at Granada will soon become one of your favorite places to grab brunch in Dallas. My recommendation, everyone order something different and share. That way everyone can try some of everything.
