couldn't leave Denver without beer

couldn’t leave Denver without beer

 

As it turns out, Denver wasn’t a bad town for brunch. We hit up Table 6 on our last day for interesting food options. Table 6 has only a beer and wine license so we went with micheladas as our brunch drink. As I like to describe it to people, it’s like a beer Bloody Mary but with a Latin twist. Of course Table 6 does serve it with local Coors Golden Banquet beer.

I wish we had ordered the fried green tomatoes, animal style. I regret not ordering them but we were flying out that day and I couldn’t really eat the whole menu since I didn’t want to be in a food coma on the flight home.  I was intrigued by the rice crepes and duck meatballs. The lamb frittata also called my name. The grilled wedge salad with beef bacon also sounded great. If you lean towards a sweet breakfast, the flapjacks with sour cherry compote sounded good.

We ultimately decided the shaved ribeye gomokuzushi sounded like the best dish and two of my friends ordered it. I ordered the BBQ short ribs chili con carne and a side of steak fries. My dish arrived in a burning hot bowl which kept the chips nice and crispy. I also dipped the fries into my bowl. It was really good though I wanted it to be spicier.

I’d skip the steak fries – at $4, it was basically a $1 a fry.

Gomokuzushi means sushi rice with vegetables. Served with tamari (like soy sauce but without the wheat), this dish reminded me of something I’d make for myself at home. It’s not a bad thing to say that as I like big bowls of comforting food sometimes. Mix it all up with the eggs, broccoli, mushrooms and dig in.
