Bertha Miranda's Mexican Restaurant is quite the oasis once through its doors with light streaming in through the sunroof, potted plants all about, and comfy leather-upholstered wicker seats to settle back in.
The table salsa is very loose but quite zesty if you care to sip a mouthful. Save some to spoon over a side of rice.
For starters I sampled the Sausage and Bean Dip, a delicious, substantial chip topper. With salsa verde, sautéed onion and melted cheese it's the real deal! Offered either hot or mild, I chose hot. Zesty, savory! A meal in its own right.
For main course I enjoyed a plate of Enchiladas Montadas – stacked cheese enchiladas with your choice of sauces, red or green, and style of egg served atop, scrambled or over easy – with sides of fluffy rice and creamy refried beans. The red sauce is rather akin to a Tex-Mex chili gravy; thick, rich, comforting. The cheese within is abundant and well melted. Overall a fine brunch.
