MOzen Bistro and Border Grill (tie)

If you’re thinking bacon and eggs, think again. MOzen Bistro at the Mandarin Oriental caters to many Asian guests, and the restaurant has a team of chefs from India, China and Japan to complement chef Vivek Rawat. There is a distinctly Asian cast to this brunch, served noon-2:30 p.m. Sundays.

You can make up a bento box composed of six dishes, order the restaurant’s terrific Indian-style chicken, have XO fried rice, and even top-grade sushi, all for one set price ($48).

Still, who could ignore the deal at Border Grill at Mandalay Bay, an all-you-can-eat brunch served poolside for $25?

Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, a.k.a. the “Too Hot Tamales,” serve dishes such as green corn tamales, Yucatan eggs Benedict topped with pork cooked in a banana leaf, and guava empanadas, plus a dozen more pan-Latino creations. Feel like free-flowing $5 mimosas? We thought as much.

Gyoza, Monta

This bustling noodle shop’s gyoza, or hand-made dumplings, take a little extra time, so when you order, the waitress will immediately shout over your shoulder to the kitchen that you’d like some. The gyoza are made in-house daily with pork and vegetables, then pan-fried for a nice crust on the outside. Make your own dipping sauce from the accoutrements in front of you: soy sauce, a little vinegar and a little chili oil or shichimi seven spice. $5, 5030 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 6, 367-4600.
