Miguel’s Cocina in Point Loma has become our second home each time we visit our family in San Diego as we typically indulge in the Sunday Champagne Brunch. The Brunch menu provides extensive selections ranging from traditional breakfast items like Huevos Rancheros, Machaca con Hueveos to more elaborate fusion items including the Calamari & Lobster Omelets. The chips, salsa, white jalapeno cheese sauce, spicy pickled carrots, onions and jalapenos are always plentiful and endless at Miguel’s along with the champagne and orange juice(Mimosa’s/Mimi’s)
Today was no exception when we arrived on a gloomy, windy San Diego day. Today I tried the house special Pozole since I was in the mood for soup. I was initially going to order the Albondigas, but after reading the description was hooked. This stew-like soup from Mexico and New Mexico is made from hominy, with pork, chile, garbanzo beans and other seasonings and garnished with cilantro, avocado and lime wedges. It was the perfect way to warm up to a traditional Mexican brunch of Machaca con Huevos and tortillas. I shared the Machaca and made tacos with the rice and beans provided with the addition of diced cilantro and onions per my request. The onions and cilantro provide a bitter sweet fragrant taste that deepens the taste sensation. It reminds me of Baja style street tacos as well. I also sampled a bite of the Calamari Omelette at our table. It was also quite tasty, but I prefer the Machaca dish that is accompanied by a bountiful selection of tortillas.
After a few glasses of Champagne you will forget that you are next to the Marina in Point Loma and start to envision yourself beach-side singing “Take me home to Mexico, Baja-California”–Lyric Courtesy of the Long Beach Dub All Stars
