Brunch at Vox Table

Though Austin is known for amazing brunches, we rarely try them.  Most Sundays, I am too lazy to get dressed; hanging out in pjs, sipping on coffee & nibbling on chocolate or leftover bites until well after lunchtime.  

It's a nice way to spend the day, but it's fun to try something new once in a while too!  A couple of weeks ago, Andrew & I met his sister Katie on South Lamar for a little brunch at Vox Table.  None of us had been before, but I think we will all be back.

We sat down right at 11am and were quickly greeted by an incredibly friendly & knowledgeable server.  He gave us a quick run-down of drinks & offered up a few tips; including the very helpful suggestion to order several dishes & share them.

We took him up on the advice & I'm so glad I got to try bites of everything.  All of our small plates were amazing & came out in the server recommended order, which flowed perfectly.  Definitely let your server take the reigns in this area!  

Crab Benedict with prosciutto chip and yorkshire pudding bread
We started out with the Crab Benedict.  If I were to order a dish all to myself, this one might have been it.  The soft, flaky bites of yorkshire pudding bread went so well with the butter poached crab, egg & creamy hollandaise sauce.  And the super crisp proscuitto chip was a wonderful addition of crunch & pork goodness.  

Salsa Verde Pork Hash

The Salsa Verde Pork Hash was up next.  The rich egg paired nicely with the spicy pork & vegetables.  The combo of corn, zucchini & sweet potato was original & tasty.  And I appreciated that the dish was not overwhelmingly spicy.  I've been known to be a wimp when it comes to heat & there was just enough to keep the dish interesting without turning my taste buds off.  

Stuffed toast with ricotta, roasted strawberries & aged balsamic

Rich, fruit & cheese filled stuffed brioche was the finishing jewel of our brunch.  This dish was decadent, but so, so good.  Roasting the strawberries & adding aged balsamic brought out so many flavor notes & really made the dessert unique.  The stuffed toast might have tied the Crab Benedict for my favorite dish.


'Choose Your Own Spice' Bloody Mary with a LoneStar chaser
I chose one of the Mimosas (tasty & quite strong!), but Katie & Andrew both tried out the Blood Mary pictured here & liked them alot.  They came with a dropper of hot sauce, so that you could control the level of spice (genius!) & were accompanied by a beer chaser.  How fun?!?
