Best Brunch in Kansas City: Zocalo Mexican Cuisine & Tequileria

As many of you know, every day of my life revolves around food, but my weekends are especially food-centric because of one six letter word: Brunch. It's a mandatory weekend activity that allows me to catch up with friends and indulge in some of my favorite culinary morning staples paired with a mimosa or three.

My recent Kansas City favorite has been Zocalo Mexican Cuisine and Tequileria. This modern Mexican restaurant located on the Kansas City Country Club Plaza is all about aesthetics: from its inviting contemporary atmosphere to its exquisite, carefully plated dishes.

What to Order:  Biscuits & Gravy, Horchata Waffle, Breakfast Burger and Breakfast Burrito.

I legitimately ordered the entire menu and I recommend not being as overzealous as I was but if you are...

Go to Zocalo for brunch then take a stroll around the beautiful Country Club Plaza. This 15-block area of major fashion chains, local favorites, bustling restaurants and architectural character, is a great place to burn off the excess calories.

 These Biscuits and Gravy are a work of art.

Biscuits & Gravy

These aren't your typical biscuits and gravy.  The biscuits are house-made lathered with a chorizo cream gravy and topped with a sunny-side up egg.

If you feel like living life on the edge, try eating the entire charred jalapeño.

Horchata Waffle

Horchata whipped cream, maple syrup & fresh berries.

Breakfast Burger

The ultimate brunch item: not quite breakast, not quite lunch but undeniably delicious.

Two juicy beef patties encrusted in fine coffee grounds, gooey pepper jack cheese, a maple-dijon spread on the toasted buns, sunny side up egg and BACON.

Breakfast Burrito

If you are like me, ask for extra queso blanco mornay

Bottomless mimosas ($9 with the purchase of an entree) are the only other thing that would make this spread more enjoyable.
