  • Brunch at Vera’s

    Posted on | January 16, 2007 | 1 Comment |

    Blog pics photoLast weekend Siva and I had to get up early for a 11 o’ clock appointment (yeah, that is early for us on a weekend ). But the person we were supposed to meet canceled at the last minute. Since we got all dressed up to go out anyway, and since Siva was in a great mood, we decided to go out for brunch, even though there was a playoff game going on.. We don’t do anything together on weekends during NFL season when a game is on… I wanted to go somewhere we haven’t been, and had an ulterior motive of going to the Brazilian boutique in Ballard, I picked Vera’s from some list where it was projected as a top 10 breakfast/brunch place.

    There was still a lot of snow on the road, by the time we reached Ballard, it was raining pretty heavy. Vera’s look very non-descriptive from outside, but as soon as we walked in I realized that I had been there before with friends… It is just a glorified diner, without all the extra grease you would expect… I had the Ballard scramble, which was very ordinary, and Siva had a Spanish sausage egg Benedict which was not bad… Anyway I have no idea why it made it to anyone’s top 10! Only reason I blogged about it is because I don’t want to forget again that I had been here…
    Again, I am not a big food snob, but going out for breakfast is a rare thing for me, I prefer to have something I can’t make at home! Guess if you live in Ballard and have a very healthy appetite, and want to eat a big plate of greasy food to get rid of a hangover, and you are too classy to go to Dennis, then go to the ATM (No credit cards at Vera’s) and head to Vera’s. For anyone else, there are much better breakfast joints around here…
    I did manage to sneak into the Brazilian boutique, but as I was browsing it started snowing again, and we had to get home as soon as possible. So all in all, it was a fruitless outing…
