You might have noticed by now that I am a Brunch Lover!
I’ve been on a brunchin’ for the past weeks!
Who doesn’t love Brunch, anyways?
So, this is what I was up to this weekend.
I hadn’t seen my girl Kia (who was also my Maid of Honor) in a long time.
We usually try to catch up whenever she’s in town from Ohio, pursuing her medical endeavors, over good drinks and food.
She’d heard good things about Brookland’s Finest Bar & Kitchen but had never been.
Perfect for us to discover!
Cute little spot in one of the nation’s capital neighborhood, Brookland.
We were kind of lost when we walked in.
The hostess stand/table was empty and wondered if we were to seat ourselves or wait on someone.
Then we noticed someone heading towards us, who took us to our table.
The restaurant was PACKED!
Brunch for me = combo of sweet and savory foods.
Same for Kia.
While browsing the menu, we placed our drink orders.
The menu was mouth-watering.
Peaches and Cream Pancakes.
Colonel Shrimp and Grits.
(you should know by now that this is one of my favorite things to eat).
Just to name a few.
Still searching for that sweet/savory combo, Kia stumbled on Tony’s Breakfast Club which was French Toast stuffed with applewood bacon, taylor pork roll, cheddar eggs, dijon maple syrup with mixed greens.
French Toast for sweetness.
Applewood bacon, Taylor pork roll and cheddar eggs for that savory aspect.
One of the ladies seating at the table next to us is served her Colonel Shrimp and Grits.
It looked so delicious, again mouth-watering.
I could taste it.
Or maybe, I was just TOO HUNGRY LOL!
Here came our plates.
I had a dumbfounded look on my face as I didn’t realize that the elements of this dish where stuffed in the French Toast.
Or maybe I forgot or did not pay close attention to the description under Tony’s Breakfast Club?
That quickly changed after I drizzled that Maple Syrup on the French Toast and took a bite!
D Y N O M I T E !
It was UNEXPECTEDLY delicious.
That applewood bacon, you can NEVER go wrong with BACON!
All of the dish’s components + maple syrup in one bite was AMAZING.
I also loved the dressing on the mixed greens.
Service was OK. Nothing spectacular.
That shouldn’t stop you from checking them out!
What we had was GREAT and I think you’ll love it too.
