Change is in the air – from summer to fall, the seasons are changing and so is the seasonal featured menu at First Watch.

As the temperatures are beginning to cool slightly and pumpkins begin to get harvested, the new First Watch seasonal menu reflects that change with hearty pork carnitas burritos, pumpkin spiced pancakes, carrot crush juice, and cinnamon sugar doughnut holes.

My favorite dish was the Carnitas Burrito, a massive tortilla burrito stuffed with pork carnitas, scrambled cage-free eggs, fresh seasoned potatoes, black beans, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses, and fresh avocado. The burrito is covered with a mild, delicious tomatillo hollandaise and topped with lime crema, pico de gallo, house-pickled onions, fresh cilantro and Cotija cheese. What a beauty!!!

CARROT CRUSH
Carrot, orange, coconut water, turmeric and lemon.
