Ulah Bistro: Brunch

*Post by Mark.

Ulah Bistro, located in the heart of DC's U Street district is a place I've never been able to try for dinner, but has been a trusted brunch depot ever since my first trip there. There's an upstairs, a bar, and a see-and-be-seen patio. Every time I've been, we've sat near the bar in the main dining room (below, right). It's been near-empty every time, because Ulah is one of a few places in town that starts serving their brunch at ten and us two early birds show up right as they open the doors. 

 

 

On this trip, I decided to start my morning off with an Irish Coffee, dashed with a splash of festive green dye in the whip cream- surely, a true Irishman wouldn't drink it any other way. 

 

 

We split an order of the Breakfast Pizza (below), with basil tomato sauce, prosciutto, and three sunny-side up eggs. The pizza is what's brought me back to Ulah for repeat visits. The rest of the food could be completely forgettable, but the inclusion of prosciutto and three - count 'em, three - eggs on top make this pie the ultimate hangover indulgence. What I appreciate most about the pizza is that the crust is just thick and chewy enough to shoulder the burden of bacon and eggs without caving in.

 

 

The pizza could've been enough to feed the both of us, but we each opted for more. Angela got the classic Eggs Benedict, which came with a slice of watermelon and home fries (below, left). I went with the Breakfast Bacon, Egg & Cheese sandwich, which heaped scrambled eggs, bacon, gorgonzola, lettuce, and tomato, between two hefty pieces of mini braided challah bread (below, right). I wasn't particularly excited about the gorgonzola combination in the sandwich, but Angela seemed satisfied with her passable Eggs Benedict.

 

 

Neither of the entrees quite tickled our fancies, but that merely saved each of us more room to go back for seconds on that amazing breakfast pizza - it is, after all, the thing that keeps me going back.
