Bonita Mexican Williamsburg Brooklyn – Comida Tipica Mexicana
338 BEDFORD AVE.
My landlord complains that all the Spanish have left Williamsburg. On my immediate block, he’s probably correct but alas there’s plenty of great latin/Spanish food in the close vicinity. I went to 2 places for brunch over the weekend – one Mexican (Bonita) and the other Venezuelan (Caracas).
In my opinion, Bonita was the hipster hangout of south Bedford before Dumont Burger opened. Then again the bar at Bonita still rallies late every night so there’s no official transfer of hierarchy but you know how it is. Old school is the new school which may or may not be the place where you want to be.
For brunch however, I can decisively say I’d choose Bonita over Dumont. It’s got a full authentic Mexican menu and who can turn down Huevos Rancheros, Molletes with Chorizo or Papdzules? This weekend I got the heuvos rancheros which comes with 2 corn tortillas topped with a pair of eggs over-easy and a handful of smoked crispy bacon. A side of pinto beans and a tray of salsa help complete the meal. Fuck the hipsters, just come down and eat for the food. Before 1PM they’re all likely still asleep anyhow.
