El Camino’s

I’ve had an overload of Asian eats lately so I wanted to change things up and eat something different. B’s been to El Camino’s sister restaurant, The Cascade Room, before so that fit the bill. It’s located beside Don’t Argue! Pizzeria.

Hours.

We dropped in on a busy Sunday afternoon for brunch. The heated, covered patio outside is a nice alternative but we were able to snag a table inside by the windows.

Service is friendly and music was awesome. Great soundtrack of old tunes playing softly in the background.

The menu was short and sweet for brunch; less than 10 options and beverages (refrescos, cervezas and cocteles). The regular menu is a bit more interesting with ensalatas, raciones (sharing dishes), arepas and tacos.

Happy hour is weekdays (4:00pm to 6:00pm), Saturday (3:00pm to 6:00pm, 10:00pm to midnight) and Sunday (3:00pm to 11:00pm).

There’s also “late night” happy hour every night (10:00pm to midnight) except Sunday (4:00pm to 11:00pm).

They also have a couple weekly features. Phew.

Grace Bros ginger beer ($3.50)
DSC04388Surprisingly has a good ginger zip to it.

Huevos divorciados ($12.00)
DSC04391Two over easy eggs on crisp corn tortillas, black beans, monteray jack, salsa verde, salsa roja and hashbrowns.

Hashbrowns were incredibly bland. Same with their eggs.

It’s always a bad sign when I have to use hot sauce to make things flavourful. At least they make their own here; the one on the table was called anillo del fuego (“fire ring”).

It had four peppers on the label it but wasn’t spicy. Skip the huevos. Super disappointing.

The hangover ($14.00)
DSC04394Corn tortilla chilaquiles with black beans, cheese, scrambled eggs, red salsa, sour cream and hashbrowns. This dish lived up to it’s name; perfect carb loading.

Besides the eggs and hashbrowns, everything was flavourful. The cilantro added on top added a nice touch of freshness to the dish.

Decent but not sure if I’d come back to EC for brunch again with so many other options on Main Street.
