We attended a recent Slow Food gathering at Mona’s Table in Alameda, where Mona taught us a bit about beans (a huge variety of heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo*) and greens (kale chips? holla!). It was a lovely evening of tasty food, and delightful conversation with some of Mona’s ‘regulars,’ who raved about her take-home dinners (email Mona to get on her list, and you’ll get the week’s menus — prices are super reasonable, and meals are super tasty!), and her weekend brunch.
We finally made it back for a brunch this weekend:
I had the egg mess of the day (kale, sauteed mushrooms, pancetta, and cheddar) with potatoes and toast. Yum!
Good gracious, this was a delicious brunch! If you find yourself in Alameda, hungry for something tasty, try Mona’s Table.
