When Mr. Monkey was out of town, I went to Top Chef contestant Betty Fraser's Grub with Mama Monkey and Brother Monkey. It's sort of in a weird location in a residential neighborhood. The restaurant even looks like a house.
The place feels small and cozy inside. You can also sit on the outdoor patio.
Blueberry lemonade ($2.50).
BLT ($10.95) -- sweet and sassy bacon on a cheddar kaiser roll with garlic mayo, crisp romaine, and tomato.
The sweet and sassy bacon at Grub is very special -- glazed to the point of almost being candied and infused with a contrasting hotness. Mama Monkey bit into it and said, "This bacon is a little bit spicy!" She's so cute.
Spicy BBQ Pulled Pork ($11.95) -- slow-roasted shredded pork topped with barbecue sauce and a splash of apple cider vinegar, red onions, cole slaw, and southwest aioli.
Brother Monkey delved into this very messy dish, which we all ended up eating with forks. I found it a little too sweet.
Ooh La La! Egg Sandwich ($13.95) -- fluffy scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, two slices of sweet and sassy bacon between two slices of croissant French toast served with a side of maple syrup.
More spicy bacon candy! This was like a McGriddle on steroids. If you can stomach eggs and syrup in one bite, you'll like this. If you can't, you'll hate it. The croissant French toast is rather delicious in its own right.
We enjoyed our meal, but I'm not sure I'd return because I wasn't wowed. Maybe I could be convinced to try some of the comfort food at supper.
