On Saturday, Ken and I were looking for a brunch spot near our apartment before running errands and decided to settle on Almond, down the street from us. The restaurant has changed names a few times and I’ve never been to the previous restaurants but decided to give Almond a try since I’ve been there for happy hour in the past. The brunch selection is large and we started off with their free biscuits and butter:
They remind me of The Waverly Inn’s biscuits; made with so much butter that they practically melt in your mouth. Served warm and with lots of butter (unsalted, unfortunately).
I decided on the duck hash:
Served with crunchy bits of has browns, red onions, and duck confit, a side of salsa (I didn’t really get this addition), two poached eggs and a side of toast. This might be the first time I’ve said this about a restaurant, but everything was under salted and plain.
Ken ordered the chorizo omelet and had the same complaint as me:
We also ordered a side of chicken sausage because I checked in on foursquare:
All in all, a good spot for brunch when we’re in a pinch and don’t want to go to our regulars, but definitely not a place I’m adding to my list of favorites. The restaurant has a warm atmosphere and they run a lot of offers on foursquare, so be sure to check-in if you decide to visit.
