Velvet Taco, known for their funky take on traditional tacos not only now has two Houston locations but a new brunch menu! The menu is inspired by international flavors as evident by the ever so popular Spicy Tikka Chicken inspired by the traditional Indian sauce, tikka masala, and the Nashville Hot Tofu, a vegetarian spin on Nashville’s famous hot chicken.
The new brunch menu is available all day, so no matter what time of day you are starting your day or craving an egg based taco Velvet Taco has your back! Our personal favorite of the brunch tacos is the Chicken & Waffles, made with a waffle tortilla piled high with crisp chicken tenders, peppercorn gravy, green apple slaw, maple syrup, peppered bacon, red chili aioli, and chives!
In true Velvet Taco traditional they included two classic brunch tacos with their own special spin. The Bacon & Eggs taco has crisp tater tots, chili butter, smoked cheddar, charred poblano salsa and micro greens to a corn tortilla. The Steak & Eggs, features crispy potatoes, Sambal hollandaise, arugula, tomato, pickled Fresno peppers, queso fresco, and micro greens.
The final brunch item is probably the most intriguing and for those out there who enjoy the sweet and savory, the Monte Cristo made with strawberry jam, honey ham, gruyere, strawberry jalapeño salsa, powdered sugar, and micro mint served on a signature French Toast flour tortilla!
You can enjoy the new brunch menu at both Velvet Taco locations (Heights/Washington and Montrose) daily Monday – Wednesday: 11am – 1am, Thursday: 11am – 3am, Friday: 11am – 4am, Saturday: 10am – 4am and Sunday: 10am – 1am.
