The Best Biscuits & Gravy Ever at Egg, Brooklyn

I love biscuits -- what's there not to love? Butterty, crumbly, baked goodness. Mmm... just the thought of regular biscuits makes me hungry. The biscuits at Egg even look good: check out the photo I "borrowed" from their Twitter (@pigandegg). Egg's Biscuits & Gravy is a bowl of everything that's good -- two (yes two!) pieces of the best homemade buttermilk biscuits you've ever had covered in the creamiest gravy with to-die-for pork sausage. You can opt for mushrooms instead of sausage, but I loved it so much, I even ordered a side of sausage - and trust me, no regrets! The sausages have a blend of spice in it that just takes the Biscuits & Gravy to a whole new level.

I ordered Egg Rothko because lots of websites were raving about it. It's an egg cooked in a brioche topped with Grafton cheddar, served with seasonal vegetables. Lucky me, it was summer and they had my fave vege - kale! But honestly, I would trade the Rothko for the Biscuits & Gravy anytime. And if you still have room - which I highly doubt if you actually finished the Biscuits & Gravy - get the pancakes with Vermont maple syrup. Definitely in my list of fluffiest pancakes ever.

If you're in visiting NYC, take the L train to Brooklyn and have brekkies at Egg. Stuff yourself silly and then walk off the calories shopping in Williamsburg. Totally worth it.
