While weekday mornings are all about routine, Saturday mornings offer the freedom and flexibility that allows us to treat ourselves to that leisurely pastime: brunch (AKA societally acceptable day drinking and high-calorie indulgence.) As the lovechild of breakfast and lunch, brunch has a lot in common with the rents, who can swap ingredients back and forth to create fresh dining experiences. In Irving, restaurateurs understand that on weekends, we brunch. Finding the perfect place, with the perfect vibe, that cooks the bacon to the perfect amount of crispy is an art, and Irving is a huge canvas. We have tried and true brunch faves with so many fans that they put celebrities to shame. These oldies are goldies, but the new-kid-on-the-block Mexican Sugar enters the brunch scene THIS SATURDAY, (11 am to 4 pm), and it MUST be added to your brunch rotation.
At Mexican Sugar "Mi Casa es tu Casa"
Mexican Sugar’s entrance into the Irving dining scene has already made life a little sweeter for foodies and is redefining Mexican food for the Tex-Mex lover with sultry Mexican comfort food.

Enter and you will be transported to a sexy and sultry hacienda, where you will experience Latin-inspired cuisine from Mexico, South America and Spain.
