I’m not a brunch person, especially since I’d rather save money by making sourdough waffles and pancakes at home, but as I mentioned in the August 2021 Mystery Restaurant thread, I really enjoyed the current pancake dish at Girl & the Goat.
The “PB&J sourdough pancakes” came deconstructed with Peanut butter butter and Strawberry jam maple syrup on the side. It was topped with what appeared to be crushed Peanut butter streusel or brittle. When biting into the fluffy pancake, I was delightfully surprised by having local Murray farm grapes pop inside my mouth.
This dish was very focused on all levels and I’m looking forward to trying other iterations as the seasons change. It came in a stack of 3, but I ate 1 and bagged the rest in my byo containers - made for fantastic leftovers and reheated well.
I also tried the “Little Piggy” Szechuan sausage patty and egg sandwich on cheddar onion biscuit and while I thought every element was well executed, I thought the addition of Hoisin Mayo was a bit much - the Dijon mustard in the mayo was distracting imho (it seems they don’t use this mayo for the version at Little Goat in Chicago).
