Yuca Bar Prix Fix Brunch: $13.95 Skirt Steak & Eggs

Date July 18, 2008

Looking for a great deal on brunch in the East Village? Head to Yuca Bar, on Avenue A & 7th Street, where $13.95 will get you tender, flame-grilled skirt steak, eggs, home fries or rice and black beans and your choice of coffee, orange juice, lemonade, a mimosa or a screwdriver. Read on to find out why Loco Tuesday’s at Yuca Bar are the best day of the week.

Skirt Steak

  • This was my first time having steak and eggs and it’s probably all downhill from here mainly because Yuca Bar’s was so delicious. It came medium rare as requested, and the flavor struck a nice balance between fire, garlic and beef.
  • It’s topped with chimichurri, an onion/garlic sauce that’s spicy and so flavorful I would recommend ordering a tiny side to eat with your eggs.
  • My only complaint was that I wish the serving was bigger, but for $13.95 I can’t complain.

Home Fries/Black Beans & Rice

  • Great balance of flavor due to the usage of sweet potato and Idaho potato.
  • Like all home fries these fell short because they weren’t crispy enough for me. I asked for them well done but they weren’t cooked evenly.
  • I tasted my friend’s black beans and rice and they were standard. Nothing amazing. It really comes down to what you’re more in the mood for, but you can’t go wrong with either one. If you’re with a friend, one of you should get home fries and the other rice and beans and then split.


Cooked any way you want, mine were scrambled and delicious. They were fluffy and a little wet so if you like your eggs dry make sure to request it.

Sweet Plantains $4.00

Our table neighbors had an extra order of this tropical treat and were kind enough to share. Amen to that, they were delicious. I like my plantains cooked until they’re caramelized and a little crispy and Yuca Bar’s were just that. Sweet, ripe and delicious. I recommend an order for an appetizer.

Loco Tuesdays aka Happy Hour & Half Priced Tapas

Loco Tuesdays at Yuca Bar means Happy Hour from 1pm until 8pm Monday to Friday.

$6 sangria, mojitos, caipirinhas, margaritas and $4 draft beers.

It also means half priced tapas. Check out the menu below.


Great brunch spot with outdoor patio and a solid Happy Hour; It seems like you can’t really go wrong at Yuca Bar. I’ll be back to check out the rest of the menu so keep an eye out.

    looks great….

    what did you go with your drink choice? Coffee, OJ, Lemonade, Mimosa, or Screwdriver?

    I turned my hot coffee into a decent iced coffee. Not a mimosa/oj guy.

    I like where your head is at NYCFG. I’m a big iced coffee kind of guy myself. There is actually a coffee shop down in the east village that makes their ice cubes for their iced coffee out of coffee. This means that once you finish your iced coffee and you have that ice sitting there, you wait for it to melt and it’s more coffee. Quite genius if you ask me. Sorry I don’t have the name but will write it down next time I go by.

    That sounds awesome. Look forward to hearing which place that is. What neighborhood do you live in?

    Cafe La Fortuna on 71st b/t Columbus & Central Park West serves iced cappuccino with cappuccino ices in it too. I haven’t had it but I hear its good.

    I actually just moved to TriBeCa. Food situation blows. I work in East Midtown though so I’m down to eat anywhere. Do you ever venture out to the outer-boroughs NYCFG?

    Meh. For a much better brunch deal, check out Bonelick Park, central village (Greenwich at 7th Ave, by 11th St., next to Two Boots). $15 or so gets you the beef ribs brunch with 2 large & tasty beef ribs (look better than the steak!), a large serving of eggs, potatoes au gratin, and UNLIMITED drinks (mimosas/bloody marys/frozen margaritas). Pulled pork with eggs and cheese grits is $1-2 less. Other brunch options are fried oysters with eggs and grits, turkey sausage & gravy on english muffins with eggs, etc., all $13-16 and AYCD.

    I venture to the outerboroughs when I can but my knowledge isn’t as strong as the city so if you have any recommendations, by all means pass them by. Thanks.


    My top iced coffee is from the Orange Mud Trucks and it’s called a Mud Mocha. It features iced coffee and Ghirardelli chocolate syrup. You can find the trucks on Christopher Street & 7th Ave and at Astor Place & 4th Ave. They also serve it at their shop Mudspot on 9th street near 2nd Ave.


    Sounds good man. Bonelick is right near Good correct? I think I walked by when I reviewed Good’s Banana Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast, which was amazing. That deal at Bonelick sounds awesome though, thanks for the heads up.

  12. Skirt Steak & Eggs Brunch Battle: The Breslin vs Yuca Bar | NYC Food Guy said:

    […] Skirt Steak and eggs: the Clint Eastwood of breakfast.  Its been around forever and it’s still badass.  And while The Breslin tries to cement its badass status with a no reservations policy and a meat-centric menu, Yuca Bar draws diners and imbibers to its Latin American oasis as coolly as Clint draws movie viewers.  So which skirt steak and eggs is the genuine article: The $17 Breslin version or the $13.95 Yuca Bar prix fixe?
