Forget bacon on the side. It's all about bacon on top of French toast at Senor Bear's brunch. This Latin-inspired restaurant in the Highland neighborhood has a brunch that does wonders when it comes to curing a hangover (including a seriously spicy bloody Mary), but if you're into the combination of sweet and savory, you need to try the churro French toast, a thick slice of cinnamon brioche with lime vanilla whipped cream, brown butter syrup and pieces of chile-glazed bacon piled on top. Make a reservation for brunch this weekend; it's available on Sundays only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

What will the flavor be? We're excited to find out.
