menu poetry: Over Easy

January 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Doesn’t reading about food make everybody’s mouth water? For me, it often doesn’t matter if I even like the food described, but the way in which it is described or how the words evoke an intense desire to eat whatever it is. Describing food well and specifically isn’t as easy as you’d think, but when it’s good, it’s gooooood. Especially if the food itself lives up to the exotic culinary lingo and mouth-watering adjectives.

Such was the case with a recent breakfast item I purchased at a pretty new restaurant called Over Easy in Birmingham.

“Italian Eggs Benedict: Poached egg, crispy proscuitto and housemade pesto on a polenta cake”

Oh, Over Easy, you had me at “crispy proscuitto.”
