Mexican garnishes for tacos
There's not exactly a shortage of brunches in this town. There is, however, a shortage of Mexican brunches. Especially those with unlimited carnitas tacos and mole. Enter Porfirio's, the upscale Mexican restaurant perched on South of Fifth.

Porfirio's introduced brunch about a month ago, and while the idea of never-ending tacos sounds like just the right Sunday hangover cure, we're not entirely sure it's worth the $55 price tag. Short Order was invited to try Porfirio's decadent brunch spread.

Paella for one, please.
If you're looking for a brunch that gives you your money's worth in oysters on the half shell, cooked-to-order lamb chops, and booze, then head to Vintro Kitchen & Bar on Sunday.

Chef Keith Suarino has concocted a rustic Mediterranean feast to match the theme at the intimate restaurant inside the boutique hotel pleasantly tucked away on Park and 22nd Street -- just a five-minute walk from the sand and mayhem. Here you'll be able to chill out while overlooking the Collins canal and listening to a live guitarist doing his Spanish thing. The music pairs perfectly with the seafood paella and white sangria. The best part? It's all you can eat, and it costs only $49.

Mignonette Brunch: Egg Salad and Caviar Sandwich, Blood Orange Mimosas (Photos)

Caviar. It's what's for brunch.
Baseling all weekend? Make sure to fit brunch into your agenda, partly because you'll need to get some fuel in you but also because Mignonette recently launched brunch service, which means in addition to shucking oysters Danny Serfer is also flipping eggs.

No stranger to brunch, Serfer has Sunday devotees at Blue Collar, which is probably why Mignonette was packed on its first weekend offering the adored meal period. But don't expect French toast with banana foster or lemon ricotta pancakes at this Serfer joint. What you'll get instead? Blood orange mimosas and an egg salad with caviar, on brioche.

Find the brisket.
The weekend forecast sure looks promising: sunny with guaranteed cool temperatures and a chance of brunch. That last one, though, is up to you.

With the weather continuing to dip into the 60s and 50s at night, spending your weekend wearing a light jacket while downing bloody marys sounds like a great plan. For that and four types of Benedicts, head to South of Fifth gem Local House.

The belly turns four.
Everyone's favorite gastropub, Pubbelly, is turning four this Sunday. To celebrate, the Sunset Harbour restaurant is inviting in Brad Kilgore for a special celebratory brunch that includes bacon jam, a Thanksgiving-style Benedict, and duck confit French toast. And because it wouldn't be a celebration without booze, bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, and sangrias will be available so you can toast to the last four years of pork belly ramen and duck and pumpkin stuffed dumplings.

Hannya's Vietnamese Brunch: Korean Pancake, Flash-Fried Spring Rolls, and Pho

Korean pancake
Miami has grown accustomed to the idea that brunch means bottomless booze and putting an egg on things, but in Vietnamese cooking, egg isn't a big part of the cuisine. Instead, pho and tea is the typical Sunday ritual. At Hannya, the Japanese restaurant in Brickell from the duo behind Akashi and Rice House of Kabob, the Vietnamese tradition lives on.

Owner Larry Chi has carried over most of the Akashi menu for lunch and dinner but has incorporated something Akashi's never done before -- brunch. The Vietnamese-style affair was somewhat inspired by his wife, Barbara, who is Vietnamese.

Short Order was invited to check out the current offerings, which are still being developed.

This ain't your Aunt Fanny's brunch.
Bored with the same old brunch? Tired of eating lemon ricotta pancakes while sipping mimosas? Think the whole breakfast/lunch combo thingy is just a little too twee?

In other words: Ever wish there was a brunch with balls?

Then check out Naked Taco's weekend brunch, launching this Saturday, November 1 (coincidentally, the Day of the Dead).

Instead of glasses of chilled sparkling rosé and baskets of tiny danishes, you'll find tequila and spicy jalapeño bread -- because sometimes you need a little hair of the dog and a lot of hot sauce to kick-start your heart after a long night of partying.

Loba in MiMo Debuts Brunch This Sunday: Free Mimosas for All

The "Ring of Fire" is a sweet potato waffle with jamón serrano, Spanish fried chicken, chipotle butter, and maple syrup.
Miami isn't exactly overflowing with praiseworthy brunch spots, so we get unusually excited any time a cool restaurant launches a brunch program. This weekend it happens to be Loba, an intimate gastrobar in MiMo serving Latin and South American cuisine.

The hybrid meal is owner Jessica Sanchez's favorite, so to test the waters, she encouraged diners to share their likes and dislikes during two pop-up brunches. Sanchez wants the brunch menu -- like the dinner menu -- to include healthful options (chia seed pudding, anyone?) and vegetarian entrées in addition to decadent items, such as the Ring of Fire. The dish consists of a sweet potato waffle, jamón serrano, Spanish fried chicken, chipotle butter, and Vermont maple syrup ($18).
