Fresh ingredients dictate the daily menu choices that often vary depending on the season. The meals are both healthful and delicious, and each dish is prepared for the individual diner. Warm tortillas are served at each table and may be accompanied with freshly-made salsa or guacamole. A typical summer menu often includes ensalada (salad) selections that feature fresh greens and produce grown on nearby California farms.
We possess an extensive repertoire of traditional Mexican dishes that have been passed down for generations and are now being served to everyone at Colibri. Classic sauces such as mole and guajillo chile create unique flavor combinations and are used with different ingredients such as poultry, seafood and beef. House specialties featuring tangy marinades prepared with steak, fish and shrimp entice the palate and are interwoven with basics including corn, frijoles and fresh vegetables.
Mexican specialties such as huevos rancheros or desayuno Mexicano, and traditional items including omelets and cinnamon French toast, highlight the weekend Brunch menu that can be enhanced with the purchase of bottomless Mimosas or specialty cocktails. An extensive stock of tequilas line the enticing mahogany bar where patrons may also enjoy a variety of domestic and foreign beers as well as local wines.
