Einstein’s has been on my Better Breakfast list since the beginning, yet I just now got around to trying it out. Unfortunately, my brunch date wasn’t feeling particularly breakfast-y on this particular Sunday, so I have not been exposed to enough of the brunch menu to render a verdict on their service as a whole.
However, they were rocking a special this week that I thought I should bring to your attention. Yes, I realize that because it was a special, you probably won’t have the chance to try it out when you go. But if it is indicative of the brunch specials that are in regular rotation, you’ll probably be just fine.
This week’s special was the Open-Face Fried Chicken Scramble.
Eggs, mushrooms, jalapeños, green onions, and pepper jack cheese, all served “open-faced” style on top of a slice of golden fried chicken breast and a piece of toasted sourdough bread. With hollandaise on top.
The egg portion was actually more of an omelet than a scramble, and this was more of a Benedict than an open-faced sandwich. But who gives a damn? !I don’t care what you call it, it was supremely satisfying. For my side, I went with the creamed corn hush puppies. Good call on my part. I felt like I needed to be rolled off Einstein’s porch after I put (most) of this away.
The fried chicken was juicy. The pickled jalapeño added just the right amount of heat…had they used fresh peppers, it probably would have been too overpowering. And the hollandaise tied everything together. All in all, this was a great brunch dish. If they had this on their regular menu, I would make a trip down here just to order it again.
Though I need to get my hands into a few more of their brunch offerings before I can say that their brunch is one of the best in town, all signs point to “YES!”
Expect to hear more from me about the brunch at Einstein’s. It looks like it can be a contender.
