I am going to take a break between the two Christmas posts to reminisce about our delicious January brunch. This month, we visited Nova, a fun little restaurant tucked away in Oak Cliff.
It was a beautiful day, albeit a little chilly, so we sat on the large, covered patio.
Due to the lovely baby boy currently growing in my belly, I was not able to partake in the cocktails. But Laura and Jill enjoyed some for me.
Laura ordered this beautiful and refreshing specialty cocktail (I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called)...
And Jill stuck with the classic mimosas...
Jill also ordered the meal that she had been craving ever since her last visit…Chilaquiles Rojos, which are made up of "eggs over easy, bacon, pepperjack, red bean puree, tortilla strips, house made queso fresco, and roasted tomato salsa." It was just delicious as she had remembered, but she cautioned that those jalepenos are no joke.
Laura and I couldn't make up our minds between the Texas Size BLT and the French Toast Casserole, so we split them.
The BLT was suuuuper heavy on the bacon, which is never a bad thing. The seasoned fries were excellent as well.
However, the French Toast Casserole was clearly the winner. The casserole was very reminiscent of bread pudding, and it was so, so good. And the strawberry syrup and sweet goat cheese "icing" really put it over the top.
It was the kind of dish that dreams are made of. You better believe that I will be back.
