Slow Food UW Cafe Lunch – 2/26

DSC01948Brunch was the menu’s theme for today’s Slow Food UW Cafe lunch. I chose the steak and eggs savory bread pudding with hollandaise sauce, the maple bacon breakfast chili, and the cornmeal brown butter scone with rhubarb frosting. All for $8. The kitchen was a little backed up for some reason, so I waited at least 10 minutes for my food—which is unusual for the Cafe, but just fine by me. And it was nice that the cashiers provided a heads up.

The steak was excellent, but the bread pudding was dry and a little bland—definitely not enough hollandaise sauce. My friends ordered the vegetarian version (celeriac carrot), which was drenched in hollandaise and looked much more inviting. The maple bacon breakfast chili was great—easily my favorite part of this week’s meal. The dessert was good, though I wasn’t getting much brown butter or rhubarb flavor, and only detected the smallest hint of cornmeal. My friends and I agreed that lemon flavor came through much more than anything else. DSC01954
