Las Brisas: Ocean Breezes and Delicious Cuisine

We visited as a guest of the venue

Being invited to Las Brisas is always a welcome treat for us. We love the new menu items that continue to take us by surprise, the views, of course, are stunning and the genuine interaction with their staff (feels like family) always continue to delight us; full of laughter, kindness and impeccable service.

A new midday menu has been introduced; exploring fresh ideas and keeping true to the classic favorites. You’ll discover great choices for the light eater, the seafood lover and all things comforting to many of us.

Our favorite starters hands down and we think our smiles give it away; Guacamole and the Classic Ceviche with a generous basket of chips. If you are a lover of either or both, you’ll be delighted by their flavors. Order the Laguna Pearl or The Don margarita, and you have the perfect way to begin your Las Brisas experience.

We were delighted to see a Lunch Trio being offered now. Keep in mind this is for the lighter appetites with several bite-size choices. We decided on a Scallop atop of Pear Marmalade, and a delicately balanced piece of Crispy Prosciutto, the Crab Cake with Poblano, Vinaigrette, Apple Slaw and Fennel was perfection, and the Neuske’s Bacon topped with Thyme Potato Straws and Vanilla Salt to name a few. Our favorite had to be the gorgeous Scallop that melted in our mouth, followed by the Crab Cake. It’s a fun way to explore the different tastes of Las Brisas.

The adventure continues with a lovely selection of Main Dishes; you may have to order a couple since it really is quite hard to decide on which one. We went with the Short Rib Enchiladas; tortillas filled with the mouth-watering Braised Short Ribs topped with Guajillo Sauce and nestled atop Black Beans. Another great choice; the Cemitas, wow! A warm Telara Roll filled with Red Chile Pulled Pork, a Cilantro Emulsion, Pickled Cabbage with the best Cumin Scented Chips alongside. Both of these dishes are hearty, satisfying and deliver an outstanding array of flavors! If you’re looking for a lighter choice, you must order the Ahi Tuna Tacos; Ahi Tuna in a Rice Paper Shell. We’ve been ordering these amazing Ahi Tacos since they were introduced to us a couple of years ago and they always deliver.

Save some room for dessert! After ordering both the Creme Brulee Cheesecake and the Coconut Flan, we were in heaven. Both are light, served with fresh berries; shareable and the perfect way to end a fabulous meal.

We’ve all wrapped up the holidays; beginning to resume life after all the gatherings with family and friends. Treat yourselves and let some of the fun continue as you can take some time to go relax at Las Brisas. We’ll help you, imagine for a moment; looking out at the gorgeous ocean view, taking a deep breath and then letting the Las Brisas flavors of food and margaritas soothe you. See, sounds great, right? Mark that calendar to visit and do something for you, it is a new year!
