Brunch is probably one of my favorite meals. I had the chance, thanks to a friends birthday brunch, to try out Johnny Pistolas. This is an LA inspired Taqueria which means a taco shop or a place that makes tacos.
The ambiance is really chill and relaxed. You can come dressed however you like. They have a great music selection. It’s more on the techno side as well as some salsa styled music towards the end of the brunch.
The food was amazing! Everything came out fresh. I feel like they could have used more help at the table for a party of 14. One person is just not enough and our glasses ran empty at some points with the bottomless drinks. The drinks are really really good. You can choose from Bloody Mary, white and red sangria, and mimosas. They do have a two hour limit with bottomless food and drinks but you can definitely eat a lot within that time.
Here are some pictures of some of the awesome dishes I was able to try. I wanted to get pictures of it all but it was a little impossible. Lol.
This was the Earthy bowl. This was my favorite dish. This is a vegetarian dish but everything was seasoned wonderfully. This dish comes with seared tomatoes, avocado, pickled red onions, vegetables, cilantro, radishes, and lime-coriander crema. I will go back just for this dish. Most of the people I was with were against it until they tasted how flavorful it was.
This dish is the biscuit and pork confit. This dish comes with homemade buttermilk biscuits, pork confit gravy, and pickled red onions. This was probably the least favorite dish. I did not try it all so you will have to judge for yourself.
You can’t go to a Taqueria without trying the tacos. This was the pollo asado taco. This taco was great! It comes with citrus marinated grilled chicken, green salsa, and cheese. So good!
I wish I got a picture of the chips and salsa they start you out with. It comes with a huge chip and a mild salsa and a spicy salsa. The guacamole is made fresh and it is soooo good as well. Even with the somewhat slow service, I will go back and just make sure I go with a smaller party for faster service hopefully.
