That finds this a bit odd? Was driving around trying to figure out what to do about breakfast/lunch passed a place with a banner Sunday Buffet Brunch 10:30-2:30pm so we pulled in decided to give it a try. I should say I’m familiar with the restaurant, it’s a semi-formal sit down dining restaurant, not fast food or casual family etc.
We went up to the buffet and much to my surprise nary a single egg to be found! As the matter of fact the only breakfast food(s) were, bacon and sausage and “stuffed French toast”. ( I’m not eating carbs so I can’t tell you what exactly this was)
So is it just me, or does “Brunch” by definition imply some sort of egg(s) being offered?
I should also add that after our first trip to the buffet and noticing the lack of eggs I thought perhaps the eggs are cooked to order, since eggs never hold up good in chaffing dishes. Nope, no such luck. No eggs at all!
On the contrary, I don’t understand why eggs must be in every dish on a breakfast menu. Particularly fast food, which is the only time I eat breakfast out - hungry and out of time. There’s always a long pause when I order that breakfast sandwich or taco, no egg.
One of my favorite brunches ever was one at an “international” hotel. Besides the usual eggs/bacon/sausage/hashbrowns, plus some waffles, there was a cold buffet with a selection of cold cuts, smoked salmon, and smoked whitefish, plus a big tureen of hot congee with all sorts of savory and sweet toppings.
