I organized a meet up with Carmen (CuriouslyCarmen) and David (PickyDiners) and we decided to go for brunch at Forage! Unfortunately Meg (MsElephantHeart) and Cynthia (Eatmunchlove) couldn’t make it this time =(
None of us have been to Forage so we were excited to see what they had in store for us.
The special of the day was the Pork Belly Eggs Benedict. Crispy potatoes with an addictive house made ketchup were served side. Not sure what else was in the ketchup but it was probably some sort of spice. The pork belly was fatty but not overly so and there was a good amount of it too. My eggs were poached to a medium as per my request. I found that the hollandaise sauce was quite buttery and rich as but a tad salty as well especially when eating with the pork belly. David also said that he could taste the tarragon in this dish but since I’m not sure what that tastes like we’ll take his word for it!
This was the Classic Benny served with back bacon and the same crispy potatoes and ketchup as above.
This was the Corned Bison Hash with sunny side up eggs, kale, house made sauerkraut and IPA mustard hollandaise with lots of multigrain toast on the side. This dish was bigger than the eggs benny dishes! It will definitely fill you up. I tried a bit of the bison and it was good… can’t really describe it since I haven’t had much bison before!
There was also house made blueberry and strawberry jam available for the toast as well and they were both fruity but not too sweet.
We had an enjoyable brunch together and I was surprised that the restaurant wasn’t busier for brunch but maybe it was because it was pouring earlier.
