After celebrating my birthday brunch at Calle Ocho back in September, I kind of forgot about the restaurant until my friend recently mentioned that we should go back. With no reservations available on Open Table, I tried my luck again and managed to get a reservation by tweeting at Calle Ocho. They pulled through and gave us a reservation for Saturday at 12:30pm!
The bread basket full of warm blueberry & raspberry muffins, cornbread, and cheese breads. Delicious!
Every brunch entree is served with unlimited sangrias. Our mojitos were good and not too sweet.
Frita Cubana, $15: Cuban style burger with seasoned beef & pork patty, red onions, chimichurri fries.
Cuban Sandwich, $15, roasted pork, ham & swiss cheese swiss, pickles, chimichurri fries. A great combination of salty and sour flavors with the ham and pickles in the sandwich. The garlic and cheese seasoning made the fries irresistible.
