Sometimes a guy just has to eat out. Particularly the morning after. Joel DiPppa writes:
I admit it, I am a fan of the nightlife in this town. After a night out, sometimes, you wake up Saturday or Sunday and just want to get a filling and tasty meal in your stomach. Instead of a normal brunch stop, I will often head to Casa Manana.
Along with the salsas, the queso blanco is a great starter. The salsas are tasty and each with their own character, and heat. The queso is flavorful and smooth - a nice slow start to a good recovery lunch. The burritos (pictured) are truly noteworthy. They are stuffed full of any number of fillings and just hit the spot. ALso, if you are wanting to get a quick reminder of the terminology in Mexican food, the menus at Casa Manana have definitions and explanations to job the memory.
Any other recommendations for a non-standard brunch or recovery lunch from blog readers?
