Over Thanksgiving weekend, Dave and I checked out brunch at Zingerman’s Roadhouse. We had been to the Roadhouse for dinner several times previously, but we had never had brunch or breakfast there before and we were eager to try it. I ordered the American Spoonfruit Fried French Toast and Dave ordered the huevos rancheros and we decided ahead of time to split, because we were both trying to narrow our choice down between the two. This sounds awfully familiar from our breakfast an Angelo’s doesn’t it?
However, unlike Angelo’s, the fried French toast at Zingerman’s was excellent. It tasted a bit like a funnel cake and it’s made with Zingerman’s Bakehouse white, which is a wonderful bread to begin with. The French toast was sandwiched around blueberry preserves from American Spoon, which were excellent. While it was very good, I think I would have been hungry had I not shared Dave’s huevos rancheros. For the price, I was expecting perhaps double the portion.
The huevos rancheros were good, but not great. The huevos rancheros at Angelo’s were better, both in the texture and flavor department compared to Zingerman’s. The eggs were scrambled rather than the usual and our preferred poached or fried eggs. The sauce was really watery and not very flavorful. The beans were good and were probably the best part of the dish.
We’d like to try breakfast/brunch at the Roadhouse again, but I would skip the huevos rancheros and maybe try their grits and bits waffle which is a savory waffle with grits, cheese, and bacon baked right in. Sounds interesting and delicious!
