Transforming from a restaurant that offers fresh fruit and tortas for breakfast and lunch to an attractive and inviting space that serves cocktails and tapas for the evening crowd, The Fruteria is a Mexican favorite that is well-designed and thoughtful in all of its creations.
It’s About the Drinks
While the food here is wonderful (we’ll get to that soon), one of the main reasons that people go here is for the drinks. Not only do they have wine and beer, but the handcrafted cocktails will leave you talking for days about just how good they are. The Fruteria Sangria is a sweet and tasty blend of rum, sweet and sour, red wine, tequila, and Damiana liqueur; the El Huevon is a unique combination of egg whites, mango, orange, and pineapple juice fused with tequila; the El Sano will restore your sanity with strawberries, carrot and orange juice, ginger, and tequila; and the establishment makes the perfect margarita, mojito, and caipirpina.
The Perfect Place for Groups
While some restaurants are designed for quiet couples and business lunches, The Fruteria is great for even your loudest group of friend. And better yet, the food here is meant to be shared by many. There’s also a great patio for talking and meeting others, too. A cool fusion between great restaurant and hip bar, this is the perfect stop during a night out.
Most Favorite Food Items
The menu is inspired by Mexican snacks, known as botanas. While chips and nuts are some of the most traditional Mexican snacks, the menu has incorporated much more than that. People come here for the guacamole, which can come in original style or fused with some citrus fruits. The gorditas are also a big hit here, as are the chilapitas. One of the most favorite menu items though is the the Puerco en Salsa Verde can Verduras, or pork with salsa and vegetables, cooked in a casserole dish and served with corn tortillas–it’s a little spicy, nice and hot, and perfect when accompanied by a margarita. Other must try items are any of the chile rellenos, particularly the Chile en nogada, which are poblano peppers stuffed with beef, sun dried fruits, and creamy walnut sauce.
Spend Your Weekend Morning Here
If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect way to spend your morning this Sunday, consider coming to The Fruteria for one of the best weekend brunches of your life. Start off with one of the fresh squeezed juices, milks, or yogurts, such as the Buenos Dias with honey, milk, bananas, eggs, oats, honey. Or, skip the juice and do a fruit cup instead, like the one featuring fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. To eat, the menu is simple and includes a few different kinds of tortas and tostadas, as well as two salad options. While it’s not extensive, it is certainly good, and when paired with one of the alcohol breakfast cocktail, is absolutely mind blowing. Brunch is served until 3 PM.
