What to get:
– Poached Eggs
– Scotch Duck Eggs
I like my local Chinese food but when I need my American brunch fix, I go to Madison (also see previous post).
Orange Carrot Juice (RMB¥40)
Mango Smoothie (RMB¥45)
A certain lactose intolerant someone got this and there turned out to be a lot of yogurt in this. This tasted similar to Beijing yogurt, which I really like so I took this and gave my orange carrot juice away.
Housemade Pork Sausage (RMB¥36) with wholegrain mustard
The sausages were very fatty and delicious.
Country Fried Wagyu Steak (RMB¥98) with chorizo gravy
We were disappointed by this. I think the fried part really overpowered the taste of the wagyu steak. The wagyu flavor never really came through so I think any steak would have been fine to use for this. The meat was a bit hard to chew as well.
Scotch Duck Eggs (RMB¥44) with arugula and wholegrain mustard
A very good staple brunch item here. My usual complaint is that I would have liked the egg to be slightly runny (and it’s never the case) but otherwise I really like this. The layer of meat outside of the egg was so good.
Poached Eggs (RMB¥54) with pig trotter croquette and XO hollandaise on english muffin
My favorite for brunch–I love love love this. The pig trotter croquette was the highlight, which was crispy and savory. The hollandaise sauce had a rich and fatty taste and wrapped up the whole thing well. Get everything in one bite.
Banana Stuffed French Toast (RMB¥58)
This is a great choice if you are in the mood for something sweet although if I could only choose one thing (rather than pigging out like this every time), I would go with one of the egg entrees.
