It’s Friday or New Year’s Eve Eve 😉 whichever you’d like to call it and I am here to tell you about an awesome brunch spot in Ft. Lauderdale. As you know Ty and I stayed at Margaritaville a couple weeks ago and had the opportunity to try many new places and delicious dishes!
Saturday morning we were looking for an easy and convenient brunch location that didn’t require much travel or hassle. Good thing we were staying at Margaritaville Resort as we decided to travel down the elevator and wonder into one of many restaurants located within the resort – Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville. Such a convenient restaurant that has a dish for everyone!
We went to Margaritaville a couple times during the trip so we could get a taste of their brunch and dinner menu 🙂 – safe to say we loved it all. Don’t worry, dinner review will be #ontheblog before you know it!
As you know, our style is to order two dishes and split – and there was no change up here. We ordered Huevos Rancheros and Eggs Benedict – both super tasteful with a Margaritaville twist!
Huevos Rancheros ($13.99) consists of two sunny side eggs on crunchy tortilla shells, topped with chorizo, queso fresco, refried beans, lime crema, and spicy tomato sauce. Let’s not forget, avocado slices and a roasted FULL jalapeno on the side.
The roasted jalapeno comes whole so you have to cut it yourself. Most likely, it’s like that in case you’re not a spice lover… not a bad thing just different.
To enjoy this dish, you must have a liking to refried beans. Everything was in different sections so you’re able to put together the ingredients you like in order to get the best bite every time. Ty’s favorite bite included part of the runny egg, fresh jalapeno, spicy chorizo, and creamy queso fresco with the crunchy tortilla.
So delicious its hard to stop eating! Crunchy, creamy, spicy, cheesy – is there anything better?!? I liked the beans mixed with the crunchy tortilla, runny egg, spicy tomato sauce, and the fresh jalapeno added a nice kick!
Nothing beats the perfect bite that’s filled with ALL flavors and texture! You will not be disappointed with this brunch dish!
Our second dish included Eggs Benedict ($12.99) which comes with two poached eggs, toasted English muffin, and Canadian bacon topped with lime hollandaise and sprinkled with paprika to give the dish an extra appealing look!
If you’ve been following Munching the Globe, you know Ty has a soft spot for Eggs Benedict (or nachos, ANYTHING BUFFALO or crab) – so Eggs Benedict was a must try!
Eggs Benedict from Margaritaville will definitely be a re-order when we go back… because we WILLbe back 🙂
and I WILL be trying Corn Flake Crusted Brioche French Toast or the Steak and Eggs!
But, back to the Eggs Benedict – the English muffin is toasted and topped with salty Canadian bacon, poached eggs then drizzled with lime hollandaise – super tasteful and a delicious brunch option! The crunchy breakfast potatoes were some of our favorites as well!
I gave Ty about half my bacon as I’m not the biggest fan. BUT, I love poached eggs with hollandaise – so creamy and everything pairs perfectly together. There is no way you can go to Margaritaville for brunch and not get Eggs Benedict! Our only improvement would be if the dish had some lump crab and Old Bay added! 😉
Take a look, what would you order from the breakfast menu??
