When a standard short stack just won’t do, make your way to Malai Kitchen. The Vietnamese/Thai restaurant in Park Village offers brunch staples reimagined in the best possible way, plus a slew of globally inspired dishes you didn’t even know you could order for brunch. With 24 percent of the vote, the restaurant won for Most Unique Brunch Fare, followed by Another Broken Egg Café in second and Bread Winners in third.
Malai Kitchen aims to entice with a taste of something off the beaten brunch path. “We believe people’s palates are changing, and they’re interested in something different,” says owner Yasmin Wages. “We want people to be more willing to step outside their boundaries and try something new.”
Brunchers particularly enjoy the Thai Eggs Benedict (coconut biscuits heaped with spinach, Thai basil, shrimp and poached eggs). The Egg Congee, which happens to be one of the world’s most popular break- fast dishes, is another authentic offering at Malai Kitchen. “It’s similar to a savory rice porridge,” Wages explains. “It’s a nutritious way to start the day.”
If the usual brunch fare puts you to sleep, Malai Kitchen will wake you right up. And who knows—you just might find yourself craving Hoi An Hash or Pho Bo to start your day.
