Doing brunch is one of the things we love about weekends, so MORE was pleased to be hosted by The Lazy Pug for brunch on a recent Sunday. The Lazy Pug distinguishes itself with the important small details – you will never wait for coffee, which is fresh, bottomless, and strong enough to have wake-up power. The fresh squeezed juices are a great way to start your day as well, or a mimosa or Bloody Mary.
Eggs Benedict, besides being one of our favourite indulgences, is usually the first thing we order to see if a kitchen has real deal breakfast know-how. The Lazy Pug serves up a great version with perfect soft poached eggs on toasted English muffin halves, covered with a buttery house-made Hollandaise. They came with a side of grated potato hash browns and a fruit cup. We liked how the cornflake coating on the French toast not only lent crunch, but also provided plenty of surface area to soak up more of the real maple syrup. The bacon, roasted garlic, and cheese quiche had a flaky crust and came with a side of crispy bacon. The cheesy egg sandwich with homemade maple syrup sausage patties and a shower of grated cheddar on top is like an upscale Sausage McMuffin. We liked the sweet and spicy house-made sausage patties, but they might have too much of a kick for more timid palates.
The offerings were of superior quality and we could not complain about the portion size, which is often shrunk in other restaurants offering brunch. If you are looking to get a lazy start to your Sunday, The Lazy Pug would be a great place to go. Brunch runs around 40RMB for two people, not including drinks.
