If you are from Dallas, you are probably familiar with Uchi, one of Dallas’ best sushi restaurants. Uchiba is a sister restaurant that just opened this month, and Dallas Blogger Brunch got to be one of the first to try out their brand new brunch menu. We loved everything about this restaurant from the beautiful marble tables to the creative brunch items.
Uchiba is located in the Dallas Arts District directly above Uchi. Their Sunday brunch menu incorporates some Uchi favorites, a couple of Top Knot’s items, along with chef Alex Astranti’s own creations. Brunch is served on Sundays from 11-3, and both indoor and outdoor patio seating are available.
What to drink
The brunch cocktails are fruity and perfectly complement the delicious menu that Uchiba has to offer. You can stick with bubbles and try a variety of mimosa and bellini flavors. They also have several brunch cocktails to choose from incorporating a variety of liquours. Uchiba makes great drinks, so I think you will be happy with whatever you choose.
What to eat
If you go to brunch with friends, it’s imperative that you order a few things to share. Maybe that is just the way I brunch, but I love being able to try a variety of sweets and savories.
Start off with the sticky toffee monkey bread, and write me a thank you note when you get home.
Another great sweet and savory option is the bakery board that is served with that week’s pastries, breads, butter, and jams. They rotate weekly, so it will always be a fun surprise.
The baked french toast is a delicious choice for every sweet, carb-loving person you know. Its served with cream, fruit, and pecans and will disappear as quickly as it appears.
A great shareable savory option is the avocado toast. They slather the thick, crunchy toast with creamy avocado and top with greens and tomatoes. No one will be mad at you if your order this for your entree.
If eggs and bacon aren’t your favorite, try the yokai berry salad. They layer kale, pears, candied quinoa and yuza to create this beautiful dish.
The baked egg has onions, peppers, and toasted coconut milk. Dip your bread in this for an even more savory dish.
The crowd favorite for our brunch was the hot fried chicken biscuit. It’s sweet and spicy and the gravy is swoon-worthy.
Your Tex-Mex loving friend will love the pork belly chilaquiles with a fried egg, salsa, and cheese.
If you want something a little different, the miso salmon rice bowl is a healthy and delicious option as well.
