The Milletes made me happy to be alive. Proclaimed on the menu to be a "REAL Mexican brunch food," the milletes featured bolillo bread toasted and topped with refried black beans, queso Chihuahua and chorizo. Then I had the option to add a fried egg on each half of the open-faced sandwich. As you can see, I couldn't resist! The milletes combined classic flavors into a brunch dish that I'd eat over and over again. Then came the battered stuffed toast. Dear Lord. Heaven. And Hell. In every bite. The dish is constructed by stuffing Texas toast with Dulce de Leche, coating that in a Grand Marnier cinnamon batter, dropping it in a deep fryer, then topping the sandwich with ancho-maple syrup, sauteed apples, and Chantilly cream. Each bite let me know I was alive while assuredly slowly killing me. I didn't mind. I took another bite. It tasted that damn orgasmic.

I essentially got a full meal by sampling an assortment of brunch and appetizer selections. Truth be told, that is one of my favorite ways to experience a restaurant. Sometimes the most creative dishes are appetizers and daily specials. The food at El Xuco Xicano was worthy of any trip to Houston. I have no doubt that I'll be back when I get a Mexican craving that my local establishments can't handle!
