Cute, Casual, & Cozy Brunch Spot - Mud Hen Tavern

Wait, it's okay take one more minute to absorb the goodness in those pics. 

You are going to love this place. It's a cute, casual, and cozy spot in Hollywood on Highland Ave that is a hidden gem. This is the perfect brunch/lunch spot, though they serve dinner too but I've only had their brunch so that's what I can vouch for. My father in law took us to this place one Sunday ago, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal on their patio. I posted pictures of the food I was eating and got messages left and right from friends asking where I was at. 

What I loved about it was the unique fusion of flavors - like eggs with coconut jam and dark soy sauce;  I kept thinking about how creative the chefs must be to come up with these interesting combinations. The orders come in small plates and portions so you're best off ordering a bunch of small plates to be shared family style. One of their main things is their Kaya toast that comes with a bunch of different toppings and sauces.

Here's what to order: 

  • Kaya toast: coconut jam served open face on toasted bread with soft fried egg and dark soy (for the sweet and savory lover)
  • Kaya toast: maple with sea salt & tangerine marmalade (loved this combo!)
  • Kaya toast: fresh pea & avocado mash with spring radish
  • Maple old fashioned donut: pure maple cake donut, espresso glaze, spiked whipped cream (melts in your mouth!)
  • Lemon poppyseed pancakes: fresh raspberries, coconut syrup  
  • Stuffed hashbrowns: 3 potato hash brown omelet stuffed with sautéed spinach and sharp cheddar
