Masa 14

I finally ate here for brunch!

My friend Tammy and I brought our hunger and thirst to brunch early Sunday afternoon ready to tackle the all-you-can-eat brunch menu and unlimited mimosas and bloody mary’s. (Coffee, tea, iced tea, and all coke products are also unlimited).

As mentioned before, every Saturday and Sunday, Masa 14 does a $35 per person unlimited food and beverage brunch. After hearing so many rave reviews about this brunch, I wanted to investigate! Verdict? Tammy and I weren’t disappointed. We left full and a little tipsy…

Here is our brunch in pictures:

To start Tammy had a Masa Mimosa and I got a Lychee Bellini. Somewhere between my second and third Lychee Bellini refill I decided to switch to the Masa Mimosa. However the Lychee Bellini was incredible. So light and delicious and went down like water. 🙂

After our huge and scrumptious brunch I needed a cup of coffee to make sure I wouldn’t fall asleep on the metro ride home!

A brunch pick-me-up!

The highlights for me were the Lychee Bellini, the Anson Mill Grits, the Adobo-Marinated Flank Steak, and the Chilaquiles. 

I would definitely come back here for brunch. Perhaps after running the half-marathon?!
