So for Thanksgiving break I visited my friend in Columbus, OH. The city itself reminds me of Pittsburgh, which also means that it wasn’t a very exciting city, or a city of tastey foods. However, I’m always up for brunch type foods, so my friend brought me to First Watch. Its apparently a chain store, but I’ve never seen one in Pittsburgh
My friend ordered a Bacado, which had “Bacon, avocado and melted Monterey Jack cheese, topped with sour cream. Served with a side of housemade salsa”. I ordered a Killer Cajun, which was “Spicy Cajun chicken breast, mushrooms, Monterey Jack cheese and onions. Served with our special Santa Fe dressing.” (taken straight from their website)
I think overall the omelet didn’t stand out very much. I’ve had an omelet at The Original Pancake House, and not only was it large but very juicy (yeah, never thought omelets would be juicy!) and had a lot of flavor. The omelets at Deluca’s is also very good, with some crunchy edges and and the fillings were nicely distributed in the omelet. First Watch did get sauces right though; with the sauce, the omelets were good, without it, they were rather dry.
The potatoes were okay. I loved the amazing aroma of potatoes in America, and they were really able to get it to stand out. Otherwise, Pamela’s and Deluca’s definitely makes better home fries. I think eating brunch outside of Pittsburgh really makes me realize how good the brunch places in Pittsburgh are.
