A fine brunch at Bertha Miranda's in Reno.

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.
