Breakfast and brunch are crucial meals. What better way to start your day than with delicious food? Sure, other things may be great to spark your daily grind, but have you had perfect Eggs Benedict with creamy Hollandaise sauce or a plate of chicken & waffles that always seem to hit the spot even when you didn’t anticipate it to? See, I know you know what I’m trying to get at here.
Now imagine breakfast food favorites, in all it’s scrumptious glory, cooked through an Indian lens. The results look like what’s being served at Washington D.C.’s Punjab Grill, where brunch offerings are given the Punjabi treatment with tandoori fried chicken & dosa waffles, pulled lamb eggs Benedict, and even a huevos rancheros that uses naan bread in place of the crispy tortilla chips.
The culinary influences of Punjab, a region in India rich in culture and fertile in natural resources, are diverse, ranging from Mongolian to British. What results is a meshing of styles and flavors, which culminates in a menu at Punjab Grill that leave a lasting impression due to their distinctness as much as how delectable they taste.
Brunch at Punjab Grill is on Sundays from 11am to 2pm, so clearly D.C. residents know what the move should be this weekend.
