My brother took us, his family and Mom out for Brunch at Akasha in Downtown, Culver City.
They had a special Mother's Day Brunch Menu.
It was difficult to choose but I chose the Croque Madame. The description sounded right, and it included Mornay Sauce.
I couldn't eat it. Their idea of Mornay Sauce was more like a creamed horseradish sauce, probably right out of the squeeze bottle.
Along side of the sandwich was a stack of what I call weeds. I took a fork full and Sharon laughed at my expression. I told her to taste them. When she did, I laughed even harder at her expression.
The dressing was nothing more than pure lemon juice. No oil, salt or pepper.
Sharon had a burger which she liked. The others had...
Chiliquilies, brisket hash with a poached egg, eggs with lox and potato pancakes and a bowl of granola with fresh berries.
I think the granola or the hash was the best of the choices.
In the bowl of granola were some berries no one at the table had ever seen before. I asked what they were and found out they were Himalayan Mulberries. I'd never seen any kind of mulberry before. I tasted it. I guess they're more for decoration than eating.
I'm hoping their every day menu is better than their special Mother's Day menu.
