Midtown Takorea & Ssam Bar Spins Global Weekend Brunch

Hands off the snooze button this weekend. Brunch is calling and you must go to Midtown Takorea & Ssam Bar for the ultimate brunch with chef Tomas Lee’s signature Korean twist. Lee comingles culinary culture: shrimp and grits ($16) involves smoky red Korean sauce, fried egg and creamy jack cheese grits; Korean fried chicken and sweet red adzuki bean waffles dabble in sesame maple syrup ($16); and chilaquiles ($10) bring forth tortilla chips sautéed in signature salsa roja topped with creamy queso fresco, fried eggs and sour cream; add chicken or beef (+$2) or Lee’s recommendation of braised pork belly (+$3). Tempting creations such as pork belly Benedict, egg and chorizo egg rolls and a potato hash skillet make appearances on the menu giving guests a rotation of new selections alongside steadies. Thirsty brunchers take note: mimosas, bloody marys and sangrias are just $4 per glass. Brunch is served on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Sundays from noon-3:30 p.m. Already have a Midtown Takorea favorite dish? The regular menu is available all weekend long, even during brunch hours.
