The Damage: $15
The Background: Bunny and Brandy were kind enough to ask me to be their third wheel for brunch the other weekend. I was kinda hoping they’d let me pick a name so I’d fit in. Baby? Bailey? Bella? Barbie?
This was a distracting game I played with myself as we waited for our table. And waited. And waited. And waited some more. I think we were at about 40 minutes of waiting before they called out “Brandy? Party of three?” Waiting outside in the drizzle. Because Over Easy is super small. But thoughtfully of them, they do provide free Julius Meinl coffee as you wait.
Ah America, this is why you’re fat. My order of Sassy Eggs came tarted up like a drunk girl on Mardi Gras, loaded down with strings of salsa, parsley confetti and well, a whole lot of guacamole. My stomach churned a bit at the thought of partaking in the two eggs over chorizo-potato hash with cheddar cheese, red peppers, jalapenos, guacamole, sour cream, & ancho ketchup.
I would have liked more chorizo.
And I also would have liked the dish HOT. My sassy eggs had lost their sassiness ages ago. Tepid, at best. Sad.
The Verdict: Too long a wait, too cold a dish, too much STUFF. Call me a purist.
Lovely company though! We’ll have to do it again soon, ladies!
