Chef Vargas - Bold American Cuisine
Brunch at @chefvargas_ep. ๐๐๐๐๐๐ Eggs Rancheros / All American Burger / Chicken and Waffles
You'll inevitably complain about how far this is or about how you think you are lost when you get here, but it is well worth the effort!
Huevos rancheros dish is among the best ones in the city. Crisp potatoes without excess oil, gooey melted cheese that unites with a mild salsa egg yolk combination, over a base of home fried tortilla chips. Guac is delicious: fresh with ingredients that shine. Despite being a large dish, it feels light because of cohesive nature.
Chicken & Waffles also very good. It is actually larger than it looks in pictures. Juicy fried chicken with a moderate amount of maple syrup so that it isn't cloying. And waffles with toasted notes, mild chew, and satisfying crunch.
Burger is simple but executed at a high level. Quality meats blend, good charring, medium (as requested) interior. Well toasted brioche with very reserved sweetness. Cheese with thorough melt and well sourced vegetables. Fries are serviceable (prefer thicker cut variety and these exhibited some limpness). Prices couldn't be better, service is expedient and good natured. Will be back for quite a few of the remaining items.
