Tasted ~ South of Beale Brunch


One of the greatest things I love about the Memphis places I’ve eaten at recently is truly great food in unexpected places. Like the review of Alex’s Tavern last week, we find again a bar with food better than most bars yes but food that would still stand out even if presented in a fine dining restaurant. South of Beale’s “chef-driven” menu offering unique combination of flavors such as crab and crawfish ravioli with lemongrass hollandaise first attracted us but our first taste of South of Beale was the Sunday Brunch last Sunday that also exemplified the unique flavor combinations.

Tasted
{ Christopher } House made Muesli / Granola, grilled pineapple and banana, yogurt
{ Sophorn } Stuffed French Toast / Toasted french bread with bananas and coconut syrup




Christopher’s muesli was a great compliment to my French toast. We took alternate bites of each until they were both gone. The banana/coconut flavor of my dish reminded me of a great Cambodian dessert my mom makes. The crispy toast was the main difference that actually helped balance out the sweetness. Just as a side note, it was a very hot day, and I know sweet tea is pretty ordinary, but the sweet tea was particularly and absolutely refreshing that day.

Next time we come for brunch we will surely try the special brunch cocktails such as the watermelon sangria we saw everyone order and the Irish biscuits and gravy.
