    Eat & Swig

    While “brinner” may not have the trend appeal (or ring to it) that “brunch” has, sometimes your stomach has a craving that only breakfast food can satisfy—be that at 7 a.m. or 7 p.m. But what happens when you are craving bacon and eggs, and your weakness for Mexican food kicks in simultaneously? 

    That’s when I suggest you turn to El Taco Luchador, march to the front of the line, and then order the #15, the Torta de Desayuno. 

    A “torta” is a Mexican-style sandwich; “desayuno” means breakfast. Hence, I am advising you to order a Mexican-style breakfast sandwich. 

    For dinner. 

    Before you dismiss me as some breakfast-crazed lunatic (though that is a title I would whole-heartedly embrace), let me tell you about this sandwich; a thick, buttered roll stuffed full of spicy chorizo, smoked ham, crispy bacon, chipotle peppers,  oxaca cheese, crema, pickled jalapeños, a thick coating of mashed avocado. All. Topped. With. A. Fried. Egg. 

    Not to mention that this $8 slice of perfection is more than enough for two ravenous adults when split with a side, so order it up with savory-sweet mole fries or obviously-sweet sweet potato fries with pineapple sauce, and you are set for the night.

    It sure beats the clichéd, freezer-burned breakfast burrito. 

    El Taco Luchador is located at 938 Baxter Avenue-- satisfying brinner cravings from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
