Inside Cyclone Anaya's at City Centre
We went for Sunday Brunch, which was a fun time to sample as we ordered breakfast and regular menu items. The pancakes ($6) came with 2 strips of Applewood smoked bacon and a bowl of fresh fruit. The flapjacks were super delish. Thick, dense, but still tender. I could really sink my teeth into them. The bacon had excellent flavor, as well.... and the perfect crispness.

The Breakfast Americana came with two eggs, Applewood smoked bacon (yum!), beans, rice, roasted potatoes, and the bowl of fruit ($8). The potatoes were roasted with rosemary. Tender. Not greasy.
Passing up breakfast, I tried the Tortilla Soup ( Cup = $6; Bowl = $9....and the bowl is huge). The soup was packed full of savory broth, tortilla chips, shredded chicken, lots and lots of melted jack cheese, and fresh avocado slices on top. Very satisfying soup. An easy entree. Great flavor.

Finally, we tried the Quesadillas (1/2 order = $9; full order = $13). The quesadillas (beef or chicken) come with guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo and lots of yum. Thick, soft tortillas (with the perfect crispness on the outside as you would expect on a quesadilla). Stuffed full of cheese and meat. Very delicious. Very gratifying.
I loved the new location of Cyclone Anaya's. The atmosphere was fun and hip. The prices were great for the big portions. The staff was friendly. I will go back -- and sit on the patio which looked perfect for a Margarita drinking afternoon.
