Enjoy A Delectable Taste Of Central Mexico At El Paso’s Morra Mia
Discover the exquisite flavors and essence of Central Mexico at Morra Mia in East El Paso.
El Paso is home to many delicious destination dining restaurants, such as the Mexican / Asian fusion restaurant El Charlatan and the Mexican / Peruvian hot spot Amor. And Morra Mia is another great place to find the flavors of Central and Southern Mexico.
Morra Mia opened in October 2020 and managed to ride out and survive the height of the pandemic. Almost two years later, the Eastside eatery has become a favored hot spot for locals looking to get an authentic taste of Mexico on the borderland.
Patrons will find colorful and sprawling dining areas that accommodate up to 400 guests, perfect for celebrations, a tequila room with a terrace, and a patio with a fire pit, all paired with a lively atmosphere, entertainment, and a tempting menu.
El Paso foodies will fall in love with a few, if not all, of Morra Mia's signature items made from scratch, including its house specialty, Potzollcalli Pozole, directly from the famous Potzollcalli Cocina Mexicana restaurant in Mexico City.
Be prepared to loosen your belt a notch or two because the menu at Morra Mia is extensive, delicious, and will indeed have you returning for more, especially for weekend brunch.
Find traditional items for breakfast plus humongous Dulce de Leche and Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, Tlacoyos Adelita, and my ultimate favorite, a Spanish-style Potato Omelete, and Huaraches.
Enjoy other tasty items for lunch or dinner, such as a variety of Enchiladas and Enmoladas made with freshly made in-house mole from Oaxaca, burritos, tacos, tortas, and Cochinita Pibil and flautas.
And that's just the tip of Morra Mia's intoxicating menu because the restaurant also serves gorgeous seafood dishes, fideo (Mexican soup), and shareable platters.
Apart from its mouthwatering menu, Morra Mia's fun and festive atmosphere make it all the more welcoming, especially while sitting at the bar facing 75-inch TVs, sipping on specialty drinks, and taking photos in front of a pair of enormous decorative wings.
Find freshly squeezed juices to Sangria, Cafe de Olla with or without Bailey's and whiskey, Aguas Frescas, Vitroleros (Spiked Candy Jars), and shakes flavored with Chocolate Abuelita, Mazapan, or Gansito.
If that's not enough to tantalize your tastebuds, then get ready to be blown away because just like other restaurants such as Los Jarrones, Morra Mia also houses a panaderia baking a variety of fresh pan dulce daily and handmade tortillas.
Enjoy premium Conchas filled with Mascarpone Cheese drizzled with honey or a slice of Pastel de Elote (cornbread cake) with a side of Rompope (Mexican Eggnog) and vanilla ice cream that is out of this world.
So the next time you find yourself in East El Paso, stop in and savor the unforgettable cuisine and excellent service Morra Mia brings to the table; it's a delectable dining experience that will undoubtedly keep your tastebuds wanting more.
