I recently brunched at Grits in Fullerton with a bunch of friends to celebrate a birthday. The most delicious menu item we encountered was Thai Waffle Stack ($12/$18 full stack). The fried pork cutlet sandwiched between slices of waffles is perfectly executed. It was so perfect everyone thought it was chicken. The flavors really appealed to my palate as the pork was moist, but there is also a good crispy component from the waffles.
Perhaps it is the Asian flavors which appeal, but the balance of savory, hot, sweet — fish sauce, jalapeno, maple syrup – with a hit of freshness from the cilantro, is my idea of perfection on a plate. Well done!
