Awesome Deals: Mercadito Cantina Brunch

In this island of expensive meals and outrageously priced anythings, New Yorkers are always looking for a good deal. After all, they are hard to come by…or so you would think. It is a personal mission for my close friends to find cheap eats usually including alcohol. So we took this opportunity to celebrate a birthday AND eat and drink merrily, without breaking the bank!

For two hours, there is an all-you-can-drunk brunch special that includes one brunch entree for $25. Yes, ONLY $25 for as many alcoholic beverages as you would like. This does have great potential to be detrimental to your health, but it really provides an enjoyable drinking experience for all involved.

We all started off with their three types of guacamole appetizer: traditional (tomato, cilantro, onion, chile serrano), guacamole de mango (pico de gallo, jicama, chipotle), and guacamole de pina (pineapple, tomatillo, habaero, mint). We easily munched it down while taking gulps of our pineapple / mango mimosa drinks.

I ordered the Revuletos – scrambled eggs with Berkshire pork carnitas, tomatillo pico de gallo, and ancho salsa. It is as good as it sounds since the eggs weren’t overdone and the salsa complimented the pork very well.

It is easy to say that we walked out of there full and happily buzzing with joy. Cheap deal, lots of alcohol, tasty food, and great conversation. This is definitely a place to check out with friends for a fun and intense brunch.
