Brunch is one of those things we don’t always pamper ourselves with, and it takes a special place that bridges the breakfast/brunch divide. Breakfast is sometimes hearty, sometimes light, but brunch is one of those times where you can blow your diet with loaded french toast, mimosas and bloody mary’s, or steak and eggs, and no one will bat an eye. After all, it’s brunch!
We lucked out and found a great local institution on our last trip to Louisville in the form of Wild Eggs, a breakfast/brunch/and lunch place that focuses on various egg dishes, but more so fresh ingredients all around.
As I’m always on the lookout for sometime I’ve never tried before, or wouldn’t be able to try again for a while, I decided to give the breakfast burrito a try. Stuffed with Chorizo, eggs, cheese, and other veggies, then topped with fresh pico de gallo and avocado chunks, it was a savory, cheesy mess. The Chorizo is not something we see often or try often in Nashville, but when mixed with fluffy eggs, you just have to make sure each bite includes some burrito, black beans, avocado, and home fries. Talk about a way to start your day!
We also ordered a side of the “grits of the day” which basically consisted of cheese grits with a good deal of garlic and oniony goodness.
The Surfer Girl Omelet had spinach, mushrooms, onions, cream cheese, avocado and sprouts. I was a little nervous that the cream cheese would make the omelet heavy, but it was surprisingly light and did not take over the omelet. The Everything Muffin contained poppy seeds, roasted garlic, onion, and sesame seeds. That’s a lot going on in a little muffin, but the flavors were very light and the muffin had a sweet buttery taste. It was very good and a nice complement to the omelet. I was a little disappointed in the potatoes. They had very little seasoning and can’t really be described as anything but average. If I were to go back, I would get the grits.
