There are a couple of key reasons why we love brunch at Mayita; the first is their bottomless sangria and margarita deal (125RMB and 165RMB per person respectively), and the second is their yawning terrace adorned with palm trees and good vibes. With large tables and a grassy area, it’s also a popular destination for families, meaning it can get a little rowdy when the sun’s out, but it’s fun all the same.

From the menu, there are tacos and quesadillas, soups and salads, and egg dishes. Mayita’s breakfast burrito (65RMB) is an excellent option. It’s filling and full of flavour, mixing chorizo, eggs, cheddar cheese, roasted potatoes and bell peppers. Topped with chilled sour cream and fresh tomato, as you make your way through this signature brunch dish, it descends into a wonderful, sloppy mess.

For something slightly more refined, the jalapeño omelette (55RMB) sees delicate and fluffy eggs stuffed with goat cheese and a wonderfully zingy jalapeño mix. Accompanied by guacamole and roast potatoes, this is the perfect brunch option for those who aren’t famished, but are craving something flavoursome.

Whatever you opt for as a main, don’t forget to save room for the churros (55RMB). The deliciously plump, deep-fried dough fritters are coated with cinnamon and sugar and are highly addictive. Served with a trio of whipped cream, gooey chocolate and wonderfully sweet strawberry sauce, it’s a dish best not shared.
