ORDER: brunch bowl with lentils, roasted veggies, kale, sunnyside up eggs, house made tomatillo salsa.
You know that movie The Lobster? It’s the one with Colin Farrell that’s super indie and thought-provoking, but totally should’ve been a short. In case you missed it, it’s a 120-minute critique of love and humanity. In the movie, if you don’t find a proper love match, you’re turned into an animal of your choice. Aw, a dash free will, that’s nice. But really, this is all just a roundabout way of saying, I’d totally be a loveless chicken if it came down to it, because I effing love eggs. In case The Lobster comes true in some soon-ish dystopic future, please note I’d want to be on one of those organic, free-range chickens from Portland who eats grains and has a name.
Despite the unnecessarily long-winded discussion above, the main takeaway is that eggs are, like, really important to me. They’re my main source of protein, other than steak, chicken, fish, quinoa, pork, beans, other seafoods, and fortified substitute milks. So you see, I’m pretty much a dedicated expert when it comes to America’s second favorite breakfast protein. And so, you should totally trust my opinion that Ostrich Farm’s brunch bowl is more than worthy of your mouth buds. Atop a mound of lentils, kale, and roasted veggies, you’ll find two gorgeous saucers, sunny-side-up and coated in homemade tomatillo salsa. This dish may sound a bit douchey, I agree. But let’s put our side-eye in our back pockets and give this one a crack.
