I love brunch. So does the rest of the city. Saturday and Sunday afternoons, the sidewalks are packed with hungry diners. This is why I rarely make plans to eat out before 5pm on the weekend. But if you’re gonna do it, you gotta do it right. Salt’s Cure brunch has been on my radar since it opened last August. It’s tiny, and easy to miss – just look catty-corner from Astro Burger on Santa Monica.
The menu is also small, changes daily, and meat-centric
I went with Jacy and Ali – my carnivore comrades.
We arrived 15 minutes before it opened, and were rewarded with a table by the window
I got the Griddle Cakes – the waitress gave me a hard time when I ordered the cinnamon butter on the side, but I know my stomach!
Used just a dab on each layer of the triple stack…
…soft and fluffy but with a hearty oatmeal bite
Exchanged half of one for a forkful of quiche…
…and a taste of the 2x2x2 (2 sunnyside-up eggs x 2 housemade sausage patties x 2 pieces of bacon, with tomato and a biscuit)
That is some delicious pork!!!
Brunch here is worth the wait – especially when you have such lovely company.
