We've all experienced the glories of a post-brunch nap. But what if you were breaking your Sunday fast with foods other than a stack of carbs drizzled in sugar? At Kuu in Memorial City, chef Addison Lee says that his goal in creating a unique brunch menu was avoiding the heaviness the meal usually connotes. His solution? Lighter Japanese fare served in shareable, tapas-style portions.
Besides a large menu that includes indulgences like truffle fried rice and creamy uni-and-crab pasta, when the brunch debuts October 14, there will also be an element known as the "snack bar." This healthier alternative will be a buffet featuring yogurts, fresh-squeezed juices, pickles, seaweed salad, edamame, bite-sized desserts, and other treats that will change each Sunday. For diners seeking even more variety, the Brunch Set allows for a choice of any two dishes from the set menu, plus the usually $18 snack bar. After all, no matter how much you try to hold back and avoid a nap, there's no avoiding a delicious lazy Sunday every once in a while.
