I’ve been all around LA for brunch and seem to always end up ordering the same type of meal–avocado toast with eggs. After mimosas, of course, my entire meal is upward of $30 and I’m a little sick of it. If you grocery shop at all you know how much bread, avocado, lemon, and salt cost, and it it doesn’t justify a quadruple (at least) mark-up. If we are talking about adding truffle salt and/or oil and chili flakes then ok, add 1 or 2 dollars. But still. So basically I am boycotting brunch on account of over-priced avo toast and will share with you how to achieve that perfect LA-restaurant style perfection.
