Brunch Must-Have of the Week: Cornmeal Crusted Soft Shell Crab

Don't miss out on this hidden gem.

While the Parish is a popular restaurant for lunch and dinner, their exceptional Sunday brunch is slept on.

Although several of the dishes are worth highlighting, we had to pick just one for this article; so we picked the most unorthodox one.

The Cornmeal Crusted Soft Shell Crab features a crunchy, fried soft-shell crab, fried green tomato, caramelized onion, green chorizo, smoked Anaheim pepper aioli, baby arugula, and a sunny egg sandwiched between two English muffin halves. The aioli and egg yolk complement the crunchy components, while the green tomato acidity helps tie everything together.

Pair it with the Parish Bloody Mary and add a dash of the house-fermented hot sauce.

The Parish is located at 6453 N. Oracle Rd. Brunch is available 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Sundays. For more information, visit theparishtucson.com.
