Santiago's Bodega Brunch2/02/2016
Happy Tuesday friends! Today I'm sharing with you
one of my favorite brunch spots in Orlando, Santiago's Bodega. If you live in Orlando there's a good chance you've heard of Santiago's before but maybe you haven't been there. Or maybe you didn't even realize that there are now two locations for Santiago's (one off Mills Ave and the newly opened one in Altamonte Springs) but if you haven't been there I highly recommend trying it out! At $39.95 per person for all you can eat and drink, it's definitely worth it!
Brunch isn't just for Sunday any more! Santiago's offers brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 2:30 pm which is perfect for people like me who like to spend Sunday relaxing. This was my first time checking out the new location which has been open since December 2015 and I have to say, while they kept with the same vibe as the location on Mills Ave this space is much different. The space is much more open which makes it either seem larger than the Mills location or it actually is larger and the wrap around patio is perfect for those gorgeous days. The bar is huge if you're just looking for a place to grab a drink and hang out.
If you've never been to Santiago's brunch before, after you get seated and confirm you're there for the brunch you can order your drinks, unlimited mimosas and sangria (both white and red) are included in the brunch price, then head straight over to the buffet. One of my favorite things about Santiago's brunch is the variety of foods they have.
Instead of just being typical breakfast items they offer a wide mix of breakfast and lunch foods ranging from biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs and muffins to a carving station complete with prime rib, roasted chicken and lamb. They even offer a giant bucket of crab legs and one of my personal favorites chorizo rice!
At your table you have the option of ordering their croissant French toast, pancakes and made to order omlettes and pasta. I cannot recommend their French toast enough and I'm not even much of a French toast person!
If brunch isn't your thing,
then we can't be friends any more, their tapas plates are just as amazing as their brunch offerings. I highly recommend the Patatas Bravas, Croquettas and the Saganaki as great shareable items!
