Last weekend my wonderful friend Deena and her boyfriend Chris were visiting from California. Though Sunday I was originally supposed to be competing in a triathlon (sniff, sniff) my illness prevented me from participating. On the plus side, I got to have brunch with D&C!
Saturday morning we headed to the famous Elephant and Castle
Both Deena and Chris selected the Eggs n’ Apples Benedict on French Toast
Though I didn’t sample any, the dish appeared mighty tasty with it’s huge wedge of toast and copious apple slivers.
For my entree I went with the Canyonland Poached Eggs served with balsamic jus, fresh tarragon, tomatoes, avocado, wild mushrooms and a toasted English muffin
Though the eggs were perfectly poached, the dish lacked seasoning and flavor. Perhaps a heftier hand of the balsamic jus would enhance the overall taste. I still really enjoyed the abundance of vegetables and generous hunks of avocado.
Overall Grade: B
Thank you Deena and Chris for a lovely brunch!
