Breakfast, it’s not just for breakfast anymore.
Once in a while, (re everyday) I wake up and I crave something savory. I’m not a big sweets guy. When I’m out for breakfast and people order pancakes or french toast or whatever other 10,000 gram sugar item, I always want one bite and then I happily go back to my salty, savory brunch dish. I feel the embodiment of the salty vs savory brunch dishes can be found in many of Philadelphia’s fine gastropubs. These are the places I log the most hours and find the most daring food.
The places that I spend most of my time at normally offer a healthy selection of entrees for both brunch and dinner. The options for vegetarians are also rather healthy and you can very easily bring someone who is vegan or even with celiac disease and not only will the establishment cater to them, they’ve most likely thought ahead and feature a number of entrees to cater to these dietary restrictions.
This sandwich to me is an example of something that I would see somewhere on a menu in a south philly pub. Normally, it would be served with some great fries or mixed greens tossed with a garlicky dressing, but hey, it’s just me and this and a cup of coffee spells breakfast in my book. Anyhoo, this sandwich is pretty tasty and in my opinion, would work as any meal.
