Philadelphia, PA - South Street's The Twisted Tail: What could be more refreshing than a boozy brunch with light and deliciously fruity drinks? We’ve loved stopping by The Twisted Tail for dinner and knew we would be back to check out their brunch menu. This is most definitely one of our favorite, totally underrated brunch spots – go check it out! They’re serving up the perfect brunch cocktails for summer with their Champagne Popsicle drinks and Punch Bowls. Pair these drinks with a variety of small plates, and you’re getting the recipe for success.
Brunch is served Saturday 11 am- 4 pm, and Sundays 10 am- 4 pm. Reservations can easily be made via OpenTable for indoor or outdoor dining. Stop by on Saturdays and receive $10 off your punch bowl! We ordered Strawberry Mint and Gin Punch Bowl, and it's got plenty to go around; the small serves 4-6 people. Of course, we’d also highly recommend the Champagne Popsicle drinks. Let the summer heat melt a homemade fruit puree popsicle into your glass of champagne, infusing it with delicious fruit flavor. We tried the pineapple and lemon popsicles, but they also offer other fruit flavors like strawberry.
If you don’t want a boozy brunch, La Colombe coffee is also served here. Try one of the amazing salads offered for summers, like the Heirloom Beets Salad with yogurt, candied ginger, and mizuna. We would also recommend the Watermelon & Tomato Salad with aged sherry vinaigrette and feta. The Summer Squash Salad with Capra Sarda, pecan, mizuna, and honey vinaigrette also sounds delightful. Suppose you’re looking for a little more of an indulgence, we always recommend the Crawfish Mac & Cheese with aged cheddar and toasted breadcrumbs. But what really blew us away were the Beer-Battered Cheese Curds with a side of Thousand Island and spicy tomato jam. These balls of cheesy, melty, gooey deliciousness are not to be missed. There are 6 to an order and were quickly devoured. Dare we say this might be the best-fried cheese curds we’ve had in Philadelphia. Lightly battered, crispy on the outside, and oozing with cheese inside, they are simply perfection.
For the more traditionalists, Smoked Salmon Pumpernickel Toast is an ideal starter with cream cheese, chives, and capers its easy to see why this is one of the more popular menu items. Some of your other breakfast favorites can also be found, like Fried Chicken & Sweet Potato Waffle, where the chicken is bourbon battered. If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, you’ll enjoy the Praline French Toast with brioche, pecans, and bourbon-soaked pineapple. Carnivores enjoy the Brisket Omelet with cheddar, caramelized onions, and spicy tomato jam.
Since we love seafood, we had to try the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake served on a plate with mustard, turnip, and bell pepper. This dish looked like a work of art! The Fried Eggplant Sandwich is also a new menu item with bacon jam, pesto, lettuce, and tomato. And of course, you couldn’t even go wrong ordering The Twisted Burger with bacon, blue cheese, and bourbon BBQ sauce. Soak up the last of summer with brunch at The Twisted Tail!
