The following is a report from when the Irvine location used to have a full service sangria brunch. They have now switched to the Champagne Brunch Buffet just like the Newport Beach location has had for a while.

The Irvine location of Taco Rosa (in the Tustin Marketplace where the Koo Koo Roo/Fuddrucker's used to be) is now offering a four course, full service Sangria Sunday brunch accompanied by live mariachi music every Sunday from 10am to 1:30pm. The price is $17.99 per person. A kids menu is also available.


Start with a goblet of refreshing fruit sangria, then move on through the following courses:

First Course: Bread

Canasta de Pan Mexicano

"A Basket of Mexican bread with Lemon Agave Nectar Butter."

Second Course: Soup

Lobster Bisque
Pozole del día

Third Course: Entree

Your choice of:
Costillitas de Cordero con Huevos

"Roasted lamb chops with your choice of eggs, cilantro pesto sauce and papas de la mansion."
Alcachofa Mexicana con Huevos

"Poached eggs nested in a bed of artichoke, topped with chipotle Hollandaise sauce. Served with papaya Zona Rosa."
Crepas de Pollo Veronica
"Seasoned breast of chicken rolled in two homemade crepes with white grape cream sauce and toasted almonds. Served with papaya Zona Rosa."
Huevos Rancheros
Costillitas de Cordero con Huevos

"Two eggs overeasy on a bed of corn tortillas with refried black beans topped with our ranchero sauce. Served with papas de la mansion and papaya Zona Rosa."
Carne Asada con Huevos
Carne Asada con Huevos


"Carne Asada topped with panela cheese and chipotle, accompanied with your choice of eggs. Served with black beans and papas de la mansion."
Omelette de Mariscos

"A fluffy egg omelet filled with sauteéd lobster, shrimp and crab topped with a light Tequila Lime cream sauce and avocado. Served with papaya Zona Rosa and papas de la mansion."

Fourth Course: Dessert

Remember that this pertains to the Irvine location only. The Newport Beach location still has the Champagne Sunday Brunch Buffet that they've had for a couple years now. And the Irvine location still has their regular breakfast menu every other day of the week.

That sounds like a fantastic brunch! Especially would like the Crepas de Pollo. Mexican breakfast is so much better then the typical American fare, IMHO.

I'm going to be in OC over thanksgiving week. Hoping to connect with some great Mexican food, as there are only four Mexican restaurants in our entire county!

Christian, any spots you would recommend in the Los Alamitos/Seal Beach/Cypress area? I know I'll hit Charo Chicken.

Sounds yummy. What's the price?

Sled dog,

I'm really trying to get out to that area you mentioned. There's a place not too far from Charo Chicken in Seal Beach that serves Yucatan food and I'm hoping to cover them soon. They are one of a small handful of places that inspired me to start this blog, yet, paradoxically enough, I haven't been there since starting it. Los Alamitos has a Taco Surf and Cypress has a place on Katella called Linda's Mexican or something like that.

BabbyDaddy, the price is $17.99. Think I'll work that back into the entry above. Knew I was forgetting something.

Do they serve the Sangria drink at the Irvine location and does it cost extra

ChristianZ said...

I believe the answer to both those questions is yes.
