What’s a weekend without a bottomless brunch? I wouldn’t know. Recently I went to Mango Tree with my loyal brunch club, to sample brunch with a Thai twist. There were some good things and some not good things. First, the restaurant was pretty empty when we got there. The dining room is beautiful, so we got a great table by the window. But soon after, the restaurant sat more tables…and we realized that there was still only going to be one waiter. For the entire restaurant. Needless to say, service was slow.
To cheer us up, we were given bottles of sparkling wine with carafes of different kinds of juice to use as mixers. This was the highlight of the day. There are few things I hate more than pre-made, over juiced mimosas.
We ordered spring rolls, which were crispy and delicious, served with a side of sweet chili sauce, to start. Main dishes included tofu in red curry, a pad thai omelet, mushroom fried rice, and fried eggs. The dishes were not super conducive for sharing which was kind of a bummer. But the red curry tofu was spicy and flavorful, and the mushroom fried rice was full of earthy mushrooms and topped with a fried egg. The pad thai omelet was a strange concept, with the omelet stuffed with pad thai noodles, but it actually worked. The tofu-noodle-peanut-egg combination was flavorful and hearty, and was one of the most popular dishes that we ordered.
If you are looking for an Asian-inspired brunch, with endless sparkling wine instead of juice-with-a splash-of-champagne, you should check this spot out. Bottomless brunch is offered on both Saturdays and Sundays.
