Stockyards Brunch so good and efficient!

Bobby Wham May 17, 2010 02:01 PM

Had brunch at Stockyards yesterday, It was very rich, filling, and we were served within 15 mins, all while they were filling out massive take out orders. Biscuits and sausage gravy? So good, so sagey and peppery. The deep-fried poached eggs were perfectly cooked. There's 2 cooks in the kitchen who work FAST. I am always impressed with Stockyards food and service, but yesterday impressed me very much. other restaurants should model themselves after this kind of quality. Home made from scratch, quick, delicious and filling. Other places better step it up, because it's putting most brunch places to shame and they aren't even really known for brunch!

    Well, I ate dinner there and had a similar positive experience, both with the food and service, and I did take a peek at the brunch menu, which left me determined to get back for brunch asap. Unfortunately, the seating options are not so good... If I lived in the neighbourhood, I'd be there a lot for take-out. Which is why it's a good thing I don't live in the neighbourhood, hahaha.

      Want to try Stockyards. But what are deep-fried poached eggs? Sounds like an oxymoron to me: poached eggs have a nice runny yolk, but deep-frying them would certainly negate that, resulting in greasy hard-boiled eggs,

        No actually, it has the thinnest crust, the white was slightly firm, and runny yolk, a mystery? and a masterpiece

          It's a Jacques Pepin technique iirc. The deep-frying lasts about 10 seconds and the yolk stays runny.
