One of our favorite things to do in Merida, Mexico, is to have Sunday brunch at Rosas y Xocolate. It is an outstanding boutique hotel on Paseo De Montejo. The French toast is phenomenal, as is the enfriojoladas. Just writing this makes my mouth water with hunger.
This week was the first time since January that we have been back for brunch. It was nice to get a bit of normalcy back in our lives in Merida. Of course, they have COVID protocols in place, limited capacity, baptizing by sanitizer, seating on the patio, and temperature checks. It’s because of these steps that it feels safe to enjoy a Sunday brunch at all.
What makes the brunch here so special is the chefs' creativity but also equally important is the atmosphere set by the jazz band. I’ve heard these guys a few times, but this set was different. The new horn player was on point. This kid had real chops and could play his head off. The setlist was also phenomenal. They went from once easy jazz favorite to the next, which had my head bopping and jaws chopping the entire time. It was music and food to my soul.
After brunch, we took the obligatory stroll down Paseo De Montejo. It was really nice to have some normalcy back. When we arrived at the car, that‘s when the drama started. Check out the video to get a feel for how the day unfolded.
