Guest Chef Jodi Ettenberg

While Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in much of the United States, it is not a national holiday in Mexico. The day commemorates Mexico’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War on May 5, 1862. In Mexico, it’s a fairly minor holiday, celebrated within the state of Puebla. In the US, it has evolved into a general celebration of Mexican culture. Sticking true to its roots, this brunch menu focuses on food from Puebla itself.


Mole poblano with eggs: Puebla’s version of mole features chocolate as its star, alongside chilies, plantains, and a variety of seeds, spiced with cinnamon, anise, and cloves. A perfect accompaniment to eggs over easy.

Pelonas: A satisfying brunch sandwich. The word pelonas is slang for being bald, because its sister sandwich “cemitas” has bread with sesame seeds. Pelonas consist of a bun that is cut in half then lightly fried before spreading bean paste on the bun, then filling it with shredded lettuce, shredded meat (or cheese), avocado, chipotle salsa, and a final dab of cream.

Chiles en nogada: A poblano chili pepper, stuffed with picadillo (a mix of veggies, meat, and dried fruit), then covered in a creamy walnut sauce and garnished with pomegranate seeds and parsley. (It’s a patriotic dish, since it has the colours of the Mexican flag: red, white, and green!)


Rajas poblanas: Strips of poblano chilies grilled and served with kernels of corn and Mexican cream (crema). Topped with fresh strings of quesillo cheese.

Chalupas: Lightly fried round corn tortillas, topped with spicy salsa (your choice of red or green), chopped onions, shredded chicken or tofu, and served with a drizzle of guacamole and crema, and finally a tangle of cheese.

Molotes: satisfying masa flour snack filled with potatoes, cheese, or whatever is leftover in the kitchen. It’s made from pressing a filling into a small corn masa dough disc that is folded over, sealed up into a small football shape that fits in your palm, then deep fried or air fried. Topped with salsa and crema.


ChampurradoA thick corn drink made with masa, chocolate and milk. Flavoured with your choice of cinnamon, anise, vanilla, or all of the above. Topped with orange zest and ground walnuts.

Cucumber Mezcal Margarita: It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Cucumber, limes, Mezcal, and agave or simple syrup. Glasses rimmed with your choice of chili powder or smoked paprika.


Tortitas de Santa Clara: a quintessential Poblano dessert, these cookies consist of a sturdy base with a flared edge, filled with a pumpkin seed glaze.

Casa Oaxaca

Virtual Brunch
Sunday, March 21

Guest Chef Jodi Ettenberg

If you’re particularly hungry, start with this satisfying, sizzling plate of tortillas cut up into strips and loaded up with everything your taste buds desire: green or red salsas, shredded chicken or beef, an egg or refried beans, onions, and of course cheese. In Southern Mexico this means Oaxacan quesillo, but we use your choice of Cotijo, queso fresco, or feta. Broiled in the oven for the final few minutes, before served bubbling and steaming hot.
The word tamal derives from the Nahuatl tamalli, which means steamed cornmeal dough, the base for this popular dish. Tamales Oaxaqueños are wrapped in banana leaf instead of corn husk, and filled with mole negro or mole coloradito. For a meat-free option, ask for chepil, known in English as longbeak rattlebox, a local herb that tastes like mint and cilantro had a baby.
A memela is a round corn snack with curled edges that is toasted on a comal – a large, flat pan similar to a griddle – and is a little thicker than a tortilla. We use a tortilla press. Made with freshly pressed corn flour that’s then topped with refried beans, Oaxacan quesillo cheese, salsa, moles, and more.
In Oaxaca, unlike elsewhere in Mexico, quesadillas are made from pure corn flour and not wheat. Brunch up with the most popular flavour in town: Oaxacan quesillo cheese and flor de calabaza, squash blossom flowers. Bright, beautiful, delicate, and delicious.
Known elsewhere as “Oaxacan pizza,” tlayudas are large semi-dried thin corn discs, drizzled with pork lard (asiento) and then topped with refried beans, tomatoes, avocadoes, a meat of your choice, and of course some Oaxacan quesillo cheese. Often served street side, they are usually folded in half and grilled over charcoal, or cooked open face in a pizza-style oven.
Oaxacan Atole: This warm cornmeal drink is sweetened with cinnamon and brown sugar cane, and thickened with milk. Served hot with a pinch of cinnamon.
Horchata: A creamy, satisfying drink made from rice, milk, water, and spices. Topped with cantaloupe and walnuts, it comes in a variety of tastes and styles throughout Mexico, but a Oaxacan fave is with cactus fruit mixed in.

Street Toast
This Korean specialty combines sweet, savoury, and salty. A pile of salted veggie fixings (carrot, cabbage, onion, and chef’s seasonal selection) over butter-fried bread, sugared and paired with a fried egg, fried ham, and choice of cheese, and topped with mayo and ketchup.

One of China’s most popular street breakfasts, this savoury crisp-fried crêpe is all about the bold contrasts of flavour and texture: eggs spread over the pancake, crunchy puffed strips of fried wonton, cilantro, scallions, tangy pickles, and a sweet and spicy layer of hoisin and chili sauces.

This steamed bao is for the one on the go. Make your choice of filling, whether meat or veggie, but we do recommend the pork. Fluffy on the outside, delicious on the inside, this nutritional power pack is the way to start your day.

Banh Cuon
Hailing from northern Vietnam, these steamed rice crêpes filled with wood ear mushrooms and ground pork seasoned with white pepper are topped with lightly steamed bean sprouts, chopped basil, and fried curls of shallots. Filling but not heavy, peppery but not too spicy, dip this rolled cake in fish sauce with as much chilli as you can stand.

Vada Pav
This Mumbai specialty is the most common street food snack, both humble and tasty. A deep-fried mashed potato dumpling sandwiched between a sliced bread bun, topped with fried green chilies and your choice of chutney.

Cha Yen
Both sweetened condensed and evaporated milk combined with strong black tea over ice, served in a plastic bag with a straw. Your dentist will thank you.

A bagel separated to form a brunch sandwich, filled with a buffet of options. A must is a patty of Mars-red refried beans, and opt for paprika eggs or tofu scramble covered in ketchup or sriracha (go with radioactive-level heat to honour the RTG power source).

Land gracefully with a sky high pile of sweet, fluffy, airy pancakes, lightly dusted by rust-red sugar stirred up by the landing. After consuming, be prepared to come to a hard sugar crash.

Embark on a scientific search – each of these deep-fried mashed potato balls contains something different, including mozza and mushroom, bacon and brie, spinach and cream cheese, and others to discover. Drill in to unlock the secrets inside!

Double rotor action! This fluffy omelette features impossibly frothy egg whites that are reminiscent of the low air pressure of Mars, encased in a thin skin of golden-cooked yolks to keep the radiation away.

Selection of juices, with CO2-derived carbonation from the source of your choice: prosecco, soda, ginger ale, or high-pressure direct insertion.
