Where most traditional breakfast dishes can be light, a Mexican breakfast offers an array of heavy, delicious dishes. We at Benny’s Tacos & Rotisserie Chicken pride ourselves in serving the best in comfort and casual Mexican cuisine to all diners in the Los Angeles and Santa Monica communities. Of course, we serve the favorites such as tacos, burritos, rotisserie chicken, fajitas, and quesadillas, but for the rest of this blog, we want to highlight our tasty Mexican breakfast items.
In Spanish breakfast translates to “el desayuno.” According to Mr. Breakfast, the tortilla is the defining element of Mexican breakfast food. In fact, the tortilla is even referred to as the “Bread of Mexico.” At Benny’s Tacos, we include tortillas in a few of our breakfast dishes like our Huevos Rancheros (which comes with two eggs any style, pinto or black beans, queso fresco, red sauce, and corn or flour tortillas) and our popular American Grande (complete with two eggs any style, potatoes, four pieces of bacon, two pancakes, tortillas).
Like most Mexican dishes, Mexican breakfast food is no different when it comes to spices and dishes with vibrant colors (think chili peppers and chorizo). At Benny’s Tacos, we have a mouth-watering breakfast burrito, which has tasty ingredients like scrambled eggs, cheddar/jack cheese, potatoes, chorizo (although you could substitute this with bacon), pinto or black beans and pico de gallo. Our breakfast burrito is a filling way to start your day!
Refried beans are a natural choice for some of our breakfast items, because they are a Mexican staple. Our American grande, huevos rancheros and breakfast burrito dishes all come with a choice of pinto or black beans. In America, eating beans for breakfast may seem like an outlandish idea but in Mexico, beans are a prominent addition to the majority of dishes. As a buddy to most Mexican dishes, it’s a great treat as a breakfast item for Americans who aren’t used to beans (particularly in the morning!).
If your family or business chooses our breakfast platter for catering, you’ll also have a fresh breakfast option. Benny’s Tacos includes a platter of fresh fruit with our breakfast for anyone that needs some lighter fare to go with all the starch, beans and meat.
While breakfast burritos far outrank them in popularity for American eaters, quesadillas have turned into a valued staple of Benny’s Tacos breakfast choices. Benny’s loves to take authentic Mexican dishes and expand upon them for our customers, creating a diverse menu that serves the tastes of every eater who patrons our establishment.
Quesadillas are originally Mexican, translating into “little cheesy things.” However, the breakfast-style rendering has happened more recently in American eateries, and Benny’s has one that our customers will consider one of the best available, with bacon, eggs, jack cheese, potatoes and guacamole.
One newer addition to our menu is the Steak ‘N’ Egg Burrito. Mexican breakfast food may not have counted this item in fifty years ago, but Benny’s has chosen to implement this popular dish into our Mexican fare.
And boy, does it fit like a glove! Benny’s adds green salsas and poblanos chilies to our Steak ‘N’ Egg Burrito and makes it a tasty alternative to the simpler versions in more standard American diners. In short, we’ve injected some much-needed Mexican heat into an American breakfast. Our Burrito is Mexican breakfast food cooked in a new and spicy way.
For anyone who wants a simple, compact bit of breakfast that still has that special Mexican flare, Benny’s Breakfast Bowl might be your best choice for a summer morning treat. The bowl includes tater tots topped with eggs, bacon, pico de gallo and cheese sauce. Full of breakfast goodness, but still with our signature Mexican breakfast deliciousness sewn into the fabric of the meal.
Locals love Mexican breakfast food, and visitors gobble it up like a new favorite meal. Now businesses have caught on too, and our catering includes a breakfast platter that can serve any morning meeting for an LA company in need of a spicy treat for its employees.
Benny’s Tacos is a trusted caterer for several businesses in Los Angeles and Santa Monica, with clients as diverse as ESPN and the Skirball Cultural Center. We are also happy to cater to family events and private parties. Like most people and businesses, Benny’s is insanely happy to be out of lockdown and back in the world of socializing with great food on the side. To top it all off, our catering menu includes breakfast food and hours, unlike many of the lunch or dinner-leaning restaurants of Los Angeles.
No matter the size of your catering breakfast order, all we need is 24 hours notice and we’re happy to deliver however much food you need. We also have a utensils option for our breakfast items, and just give us a call if you have any questions!
For those in love with any of our dishes mentioned above just know at Benny’s Tacos you have the luxury of ordering from the breakfast menu all day. Located in Santa Monica and near LAX, swing by and give one of our Mexican breakfast items a try!
With Los Angeles traffic and a host of other impediments on Angelenos’ time, Benny’s Tacos knows that not all of our customers have the time to sit down at one of our locations, so we’ve decided to keep our online ordering options open for our breakfast items.
Mostly, we want our customers to be happy with our food, and when it comes to our breakfast, we’ve maintained traditional standbys with tasty new Mexican-rendered dishes. If you want to come in and try out our breakfast menu or get it catered to your home, give us a call and we’ll be happy to wow you with our sweet service and delicious morning meals!
