Restaurant Review - Vovomeena

Some of the Chick Poker girls and I decided to meet up for brunch and chose Vovomeena because of its central location and the intriguing thought of the Portuguese Donut Tower. Which, no one ended up ordering.

The restaurant is right in the middle of Central/Downtown hipster Phoenix and tucked into a center with a couple of other places to nosh and shops. There's both indoor and outdoor seating and, since it was an unusually cold day in Phoenix, we grabbed an indoor table.

You order at the counter and get a number to mark your table and the food is brought out to you. We ran into a minor issue where two of our peeps' number was written down incorrectly on the ticket and we finally convinced the girl it was their order.

The food was quite good. I had the Pawtucket West - two pancakes, potatoes and sausage. Stacey thought the pancakes were "OK" but I thought they were really good. Perhaps, because I never make them at home so they were a treat.

The others tried the Pain Perdue - banana bread pudding french toast with Whiskey Caramel, Johnnycakes - corn and chili cakes with Prickly Pear Maple syrup and sweet rice and Savory Crepes - scrambled eggs, chicken, Swiss chard, Fontina cheese and Romanesco sauce.

The Pain Perdue was pretty sweet (and probably what I'll order next time) and Stacy thought the Romanesco sauce wasn't really a Romanesco sauce but still good. I wouldn't know Romanesco sauce from spaghetti sauce so I took her word for it.

We would all go back and, next time, I'd suggest we split items. There was literally too much food for any of us to finish our portions though we tried.

If you go on the weekend, I'd suggest an early arrival. We got there at 10:30 and the place really started filling up around 11 - 11:30.
