We’d actually tried to come to Fuego Old Town Eatery the day before but showed up when they were closing. Decided to come nice and early the following day. It’s located next door to Cafe Mexico.
We dropped in on a Sunday morning (around 9:00am) and the tables filled up quickly. There was a lineup out the door when we left. Service was top notch and all the waitresses continuously came by to see if you wanted coffee or water refills.
The menu is split into all day breakfast, pancakes, eggs benedict, tacos and a couple Mexican entrees.
The back page shows all of their gluten free options.
Fun that they have their own hot sauce.
Coffee ($3.50) – strong. B ended up getting multiple refills.
The salsa verde was the better of the two sauces.
Found the salsa roja very plain and simple.
However, the two strips of bacon were perfectly cooked.
Corn tortillas with veggies, chorizo sausage, cheese, tomato, green onion and guacamole. This came with rice and beans. Beans had a smooth texture but it’s quite a large portion. Would have loved more guacamole.
Chorizo was decent but the corn tortillas themselves were a bit dry. Flavourwise, the enchiladas left me wanting more; more sauce, more flavour. Adding their hot sauce helped a touch.
FOTE was decent Mexican style brunch eats but not sure I’d wait in line for it.
