So, I’m just going to come out & say it…as a lover of “smooshed words” and breakfast foods, brunch is the greatest invention ever. If everyday was a brunch involved Sunday, it would be equivalent to a world with unicorns and a real life skittles rainbow.
Until a few months ago, vegan brunch was scarce around here (unless I made it myself)…then into my life walked Meze119. I am a changed woman. We go here often but since brunch was my first experience with Meze, it’s where I’ll start.
Now that I’ve got all that off my chest, this blog comes with 2 warnings:
- If you take our advice & go to Meze119, you will become obsessed.
- You’ll be hearing a lot more about this place on the blog.
Brunch of Champions:
Two of my favorite things about Meze is that they have 2-for-1 mimosas on Sundays and they get their coffee from my favorite local shop, Kahwa. They also start you off with some of their homemade muffins (for free!). These little bundles of joy are heavenly, but keep in mind, the butter contains honey for those of you that don’t eat it.
The panko encrusted tomatoes are delightful. Lightly breaded and perfectly fried for a crunchy yet tender pre-meal dish. I have, however, only ordered them once because it was way too much food when combined with my meal.
You know how when you find that meal that you just love so much that you don’t want to switch it up because you know nothing else compares? That’s me with the tofu scramble at Meze. It comes with a couple of slices of tempeh bacon, “T’zips” (pronounced chips) & is best when paired with their amazing hot sauce. One day I may try something else but then again, who am I kidding? I won’t….
Well, that’s all I have for brunch. I can’t wait to share some of my other Meze favorites with you! Also, a life without brunch is no life at all (feel free to quote me on that one) & I seriously suggest you meet me here next Sunday, I promise not to let you down.**Side Note: The first time we ate here wasn’t the best experience. The portions were small compared to the prices, our waitress hated life & the others there were the type of vegans disliked by even vegans. If you’ve had a similar experience & haven’t gone back, I highly suggest you try again. Every place has a few kinks to work out when they first start up & Meze has ironed them all out quickly. Everyone is so sweet, you will leave with a full and happy tummy and I promise you will go back for round 2.
