From a press release:
“Sprig & Sprout is joining the brunch community! Come in on Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 3pm for our specialized Brunch Menu. We will be offering traditional Vietnamese Classics that are found in the streets and shop houses of Vietnam, as well as Viet American Platters that take familiar brunch plates and add a Vietnamese twist.
“I’m super excited to introduce these menu items because it’s another chance to expand people’s knowledge about the range that Vietnamese food can be. I’m hoping everyone will embrace these dishes with as much vigor as they have our Supper Club. The Viet Classics are what I grew up eating on Sunday afternoons with my parents. 20 years ago we would trek over to Eden Center in Falls Church, VA and we would go to shops that specialized in just these dishes. Now I get a chance to offer them to DC residents and no one has to cross a bridge and fight traffic!”
The Vietnamese Classics include Bo Kho, a phenomenal French rooted beef stew, with lemongrass, ginger, star anise, and cardamom. (Served with a Banh Mi baguette, so you can literally wipe the bowl clean.) Those looking for lighter fare, the Banh Cuon offers steamed rice crepes topped with Vietnamese Cha Lua, and an array of fresh herbs and veggies. For the Viet American Platters, we’ve taken familiar items like Steak & Eggs, Breakfast Burritos, and Scrambles but use Vietnamese flavors to enhance these dishes. And don’t miss out on our Taro & Potato Home fries served with a honey vinegar drizzle.
Brunch will start on October 26th. To celebrate the new menu we are offering a Mimosa, or Bloody Mary to everyone who orders a Bowl, Viet Classic, or Viet American Platter (banh mi is excluded from the offer) compliments of the house through the month of November. There will also be specials on brunch cocktails, as well as select beers.”
