Disclaimer: this dish is NOT called “The Brunch Tower”. That’s a creative liberty I took, since the name on the menu, “Smashed avocado, poached eggs, herbed feta & roasted tomato served with sourdough toast” doesn’t appeal to the internet masses, and doesn’t have the same ring to it. So don’t ask for a Brunch Tower at the restaurant. They might think you’re mad. Or at least delusional.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about how awesome Well Street Kitchen is. I had to wait quite a bit to get a seat, but that allowed me to see all dishes in the menu come out of the kitchen. And suddenly, a waitress comes out with this monster of a brunch, which just screamed at me as if I was the chosen one. “You must face the tower. The Brunch Tower”.
What choice did I have? This smorgasbord of healthy goodness was staring right at me, in all its easy to topple gooeyness. Perfectly poached eggs, enough avocado to feed all of Mexico for a year, huge roasted tomatoes and cheesy feta… all on top of some well hidden pieces of toast. Big. Huge. Tasty. Healthy. BHTH.
Can you go big and healthy? You can. And you will. The tower commands it.
Slimy? I really tried to keep it steady, but this tower will topple almost instantly. And that’s how it should be.
Satisfying? It takes a great thing for me to approve a veggie dish. This tower is that good.
