The Three Faces of Sun Rise Restaurant
Sabor latino, or “Latin flavor” takes center stage on the menu at Sun Rise. For breakfast, chorizo (or soyrizo) spices up scrambled eggs and breakfast burritos. Tortilla chips lend crunch to chilaquiles. And for the huevos al gusto, rice and beans accompany the plate, as does as a choice of avocado or plantains. Dinnertime options include classic plates such as carne asada, pork chuletas, tofu fajitas, and pupusas—thick corn tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, and veggies.
Sure, the vegetarian-friendly menu is heavy on the latin food, but the chefs at sunrise also churn out a tasty array of American-style dishes. In the morning, try a spinach-and-goat-cheese omelet, classic eggs benedict, or vegan french toast. Later in the day, salads and sandwiches hit the spot, with options such as BLTs, tuna melts, and burgers.
For owner Alba Guerra, Sun Rise is more than just a restaurant. The establishment prides itself on being a welcoming space where local community members can organize cultural events. Every Thursday night, the eatery hosts Lengua en Salsa. Local artists perform—among them poets and singers—as diners dig into dinner. Each week, the restaurant features a different community organization, which benefits from a portion of each and every check.
