Brunch Must: Breakfast Salad at Agustin Kitchen

A fresh, light bite to ease into the weekend.

This one is for those of you who crave all the flavors of a breakfast sammie without the heft of the bread.

The Breakfast Salad ($12) at Agustin Kitchen features a bed of organic greens tossed in a light tomato and bacon dressing and is topped with a local farm-fresh poached egg and roasted peppers.

Smoky chunks of ham (technically “bacon” on the menu) add a depth of flavor to the dish and the salt and vinegar potatoes are the perfect vehicles for sopping up that creamy yolk.

The Barrio Bread and butter served with house-made peach marmalade complements the dish and adds that hint of sweetness for a last bite. Yum.

Pair the meal with a boozy brunch drink — bloody mary, michelada or mimosa — or one of their coffee drinks.

Agustin Kitchen, located at 100 S. Avenida del Convento, Ste.150, is open from 10 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and 11 a.m. on weekdays. For more information, visit agustinkitchen.com.
