I wrote about Scratch earlier this summer.
Since Satoshi was coming for the week, I asked Rex if he would like to meet up at Scratch for lunch.
He said he had some time, so Satoshi and I met up with him for a late lunch.
I ordered the Calentado--Spice rubbed shredded beef, sofrito rice, deep fried jalapeno, salsa verde
This oozy egg surprised me.
Also, that deep fried jalapeno surprised me too, I bit into it thinking it was fried okra...
I loved the spice rub of the beef, smoky and the combination of flavors were tex-mex.
Apparently this is a breakfast dish served in Columbia.
Satoshi went with their Creole Shrimp 'n Grits--Smoked cheddar polenta, andouille, fried eggs, red eye gravy
He really enjoyed this. Of course he ate the shrimp heads too.
At first Rex said that he was going to order the Tiramisu pancakes, which he had tried before.
Instead he tried their BC Burger--Big Island beef, crispy bacon, smoked cheddar, spicy guac, "bacon" english muffin, crispy smashed taters
He said he was glad he chose this.
Chef Chan sent out these baked goods---carrot cake scone with a cream cheese topping, peach & marscapone turnover, bacon chocolate chip cookie and a peanut butter honey muffin--which, even if we were full, we demolished them! Thank you Chef!
This is another great place to gather for brunch. I'm glad we got to check it out and I'm glad Rex got to meet Satoshi.
We'll be back.
