It’s my last weekend off, and it’s the Superbowl. Football is not my thing but I’ve got a really terrible feed playing through my Roku as I rest up before going back to my normal job. I spent most of the week recovering from a 24-ish hour bug. I haven’t really been sick as an adult, and wow-ee, it’s terrible. I couldn’t really enjoy last week’s Buffalo Soup Fest, then felt just tired and dehydrated for another 3 days.
But I feel back to normal now, so it was time for brunch! This weekend we tried 31 Club on Elmwood. J had been there many many years ago, and didn’t care for it, but we figured we’d give it a shot for brunch.
We had a hard time deciding what to order, as there were several very enticing options, but he settled with the Lobster Scramble and I ordered the Huevos Rancheros.
And of course, a bloody mary.
Served in a pint glass for $8 this is a very standard, straightforward bloody. Garnished with a celery stalk, lemon, lime and olive I ordered it spicy and it came with a ton of cracked pepper in it. The heat level was purely from a vinegar based hot sauce like Frank’s. The drink was pretty liquidy, and that hot sauce flavor was the only thing you could taste. Mediocre at best, I wouldn’t ever go out of my way to have another.
But my breakfast, on the other hand, was probably the best breakfast I’ve ever had.
Over easy eggs, on top of andouille sausage in the little tortilla cups, with tomato and corn relish, and spiced potatoes. Holy crap, it was seriously delicious and over easy eggs aren’t my favorite usually. So even though their bloody mary was meh, I’d most definitely return since the food was so good.
