Twisted Fork Bistro: Eggs, Eggs, Eggs

Foodology December 31, 2013 Brunch, Downtown, French, Three Beakers

It’s been 3 years since I first visited Twisted Fork. Times have certainly changed and they now have an electronic system to handle people waiting in line. You put your name and number down and they will text you when you are 2nd on the list. Very handy if you don’t want to spend time waiting outside the door. If you want to cancel, you just text them a number and you’ll be removed for the list.

MedicalGiraffe and I waited for a table for over an hour. Saturdays are definitely busy and there were over 10 tables in front of us! We went to a nearby Starbucks to wait it out. An hour wait is quite crazy, but we were crazy enough to wait.

We got seated in a booth and it was definitely roomy. We think it was intended to seat 4 or 5 people.

We had a good view of their kitchen. Their staff are definitely working hard to pump out all those dishes for hungry customers. Our stomaches were growling too, so we promptly ordered. We avoided the eggs benny since I had that last time. Might as well explore their other options on their menu.

Twisted Fork Bistro

Well Done Gruyere Baked Eggs ($13.50) with sourdough bread, bacon, tomato, rosti and instead of baked beans we substituted for sauteed spinach.  The eggs were definitely well-done and a bit tough. MedicalGiraffe thought the dish was ok, but wasn’t worth the 1 hour wait.

Twisted Fork Bistro

Honey Lager Sausage Frittata ($13.50) is filled with stewed tomatoes, roasted squash, caramelized onions, brie and fresh basil. It is also served with sweet corn relish and fresh greens.

This visit was definitely average. If you want a good brunch, definitely stick with the eggs benny. Also, come early to put your name down and then come back a bit later.
