Sunday was a big day of eating for me! First was brunch at Sprout in Lincoln Park. Then a BBQ in the suburbs. Then back to the city to have Chef Jeff cook dinner for me for once! J
After Elaine got a Bloody Mary and I ordered a…ok I have no idea what was in my drink but I told the server I liked sweet…we started with the Lithuanian Bacon Buns because I’ve read so much about them. But I was underwhelmed. L Maybe because I’m Asian and they reminded me of sho paos (If you’re not Asian, think Wow Bao). Elaine had the skirt “steak and eggs” and I had the egg Lyonniase accompanied by frisee, radishes, frites, and pork belly. Like I told you about Big Star (and I haven’t told you about Sunda yet) I never pass up pork belly. Despite the fatty goodness that is pork belly, it was a light and delicious brunch, unlike my typical sweet pancakes/French toast with a side of sausage and potatoes.
