Traditionally, we’ve picked non-buffet, all-you-can-eat venues for this award—such as Border Grill, last year’s winner—or grand buffets, which we’re growing tired of. This year we’re giving the nod to something completely different: China Poblano, one of the most original concepts here, or anywhere for that matter, where the cooking of China crosses swords with the cuisine of Mexico. This is an a la carte brunch, but the price point is more than fair, with dishes averaging well under 10 bucks a pop. So you might start with, say, the delicious dim sum, such as stuffed vegetable buns, or siu mai (steamed pork dumplings), and then progress to tacos with names ranging from silencio (duck tongue with lychee) to barbacoa de res (an Oaxacan-style beef taco with guajillo chilies and pickled cactus). Are there eggs? Sure, in dishes such as chilaquiles con chorizo (fried eggs with tortilla chips and Mexican sausage) and huevos revueltos (scrambled eggs with dried beef). For your libations, choose from a list of tequilas, Mexican beers and terrific fresh juices. In the Cosmopolitan, 698-7900.
