This Sunday, I ventured to downtown Atlanta to try out the Paleo restaurant: Urban pL8 for brunch. It is a bit tucked away so that if you hadn’t already heard of the place, you might not ever stumble in. However, when we got there it was 100% packed. I think that really says something about the restaurant!
Update: This UrbanPL8’s closed, but there is one now at Krog Street!
The brunch menu consisted of a mix of both paleo dishes (such as paleo breakfast hash, paleo frittata) and non-paleo dishes (such as crabcake and eggs and organic buttermilk oatmeal pancakes). Even the non-paleo dishes seemed very healthy, which I really liked. They also had cocktails and beers! It’s okay to mix it up once in a while! Unfortunately, I arrived a little too late and so there was no point in participating in their bottomless mimosas (for $15) but I did order one just to try it out since plenty of people seemed to be enjoying their mimosas.
I ended up ordering the Paleo Breakfast Hash (pictured above), which consisted of:
- Turkey sausage
- Red peppers
- Sweet potatoes
- Pico de gallo
- 2 sunnyside up eggs
- 3 strips of bacon
Sounds like a lot of stuff? Well, it was! I couldn’t even finish mine! It was DELICIOUS! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the sweet and savory taste in my food – and this was the perfect amount of both! The sweet potatoes were sweet, and then there’s some jalapenos, then another bite of bacon happens! I highly recommend trying this place out if you’re in Atlanta!
