The best part about my job is that I can visit the west coast on a Monday and have Brunch at Vinum Restaurant Mayaguez.
Vinum is a restaurant and wine bar in the town of Mayaguez. They only offer brunch on Sundays, but I visit them once a month to take photos for content since I optimize and update their Google profile.
Usually, I visit them during the week and take photos of their dinner plates, but in this case, I needed to take pictures of their brunch.
Vinum Restaurant in Mayaguez is a refreshing break from the typical “college crowd” bars that make up most of the entertainment in the area.
They offer a variety of international dishes, with an extensive wine selection.
Vinum also has a delicious cocktail menu.
Diana and Samuel have the vision to turn the restaurant into a completely new experience for Mayaguez.
They are finishing up the final touches on their underground speakeasy bar. Yes, an underground speakeasy bar right under the restaurant.
It has been an ambitious project, but the outcome has paid off. The design and idea of the entire restaurant came from Diana and Samuel.
But back to the brunch dishes.
I have tasted a variety of plates from Vinum Restaurant in the past few months, but their brunch dishes are truly delicious.
The chef brought out a steak and eggs, avocado toast, and a smoked salmon toast with an egg on top.
I was blown away.
Considering that it is Monday, and I am having brunch at 3 pm, these dishes hit the spot.
The presentation, taste, and freshness of the food were on point.
The steak and eggs dish was delicious. The steak was soft and seemed to be aged a bit by the taste of it. But the French fries were off da hook.
The smoked salmon toast was topped with an egg and came with a delicious fresh salad. But the best part about the salmon toast was the cilantro cream cheese. This detail gave the toast its character, and it offset the salty salmon perfectly.
The avocado toast was unique because the guacamole was made with various spices like pepper flakes which gave it a kick. It is topped with picketed onions and comes with a side salad.
I washed down the steak and eggs dish with a couple of passionfruit and guanabana mimosas made from fresh local juices.
Usually, when I am on the island’s west coast, I stay around Rincon, Isabela, or Aguadilla. So, I never really come down to Mayaguez for brunch.
But in the future, you can assure me that I will be visiting Vinum with my friends and trying out more of their brunch dishes.
So, if you are in Mayaguez and are looking for a good brunch spot on Sundays, I recommend Brunch at Vinum restaurant Mayaguez.
And like I said before, Vinum Restaurant is a wine bar every other night.
So, if you want to grab a delicious dinner with wine pairing, Vinum is the perfect spot.
In the upcoming weeks, their speakeasy will be opening downstairs, so I would most like to give you guys a review about this experience as well.
