Ulah Bistro Brunch

I’m going dive right in to my thoughts on Ulah Bistro, because that’s exactly what I did with the food. I couldn’t resist. And now, I can’t say enough good things about this lesser-known U Street gem.

The Bistro serves modern American cuisine—hearty, delectable comfort food such as pizza, burgers and mac-and-cheese—at very affordable prices, and with good service to boot. Last Sunday was rainy, dreary, and cold, and so our hung-over bodies wanted that solid comfort food for brunch.

It hit the spot. To begin, a little hair of the dog: Bloody Marys that were the perfect amount of spicy, served with olives and celery.

My craving for eggs benny was fully satisfied with the Eggs Chesapeake ($12). Take a look at those enormous lumps of crab! Pops had the Nova Scotia ($12), also known Salmon Eggs Benedict.

Apparently, everyone in my family likes their eggs firmly poached. And our competent and cute (my lecherous father will have you know) waitress relayed our egg order to the chef perfectly, which he followed explicitly. Eggs correctly poached, good hollandaise, mush-free bread, and hearty helpings of seafood – Ulah’s Benedicts get five stars from the Morris clan!

Miss Lindsey went for the Mediterranean omelet ($9), made with spinach, tomato, and feta, and a side of fresh fruit. All the fruits and vegetables were fresh and delicious.

Hoping to cure her red-wine induced birthday hangover, Mom went for the mac n’cheese ($8), made with aged smoked gouda, pecorino romano cheese, orecchiette pasta, and bacon. Even better, the mac-and-cheese was served with homemade cornbread topped with honey butter. Carbohydrate heaven, my dears.

The entire table wanted Ulah’s delicious french fries, charmingly served in a newspaper-print cone. So fries we had, fresh and piping hot. We absolutely devoured them.

The Bitches say: Weren’t you listening? I said the food was damn good, easy on the wallet, and served up by a cute and competent wait staff in a relaxed, cozy setting. A+!

    Bloody Mary’s look awesome. I’m on my way!

  • Ulah is great, but their brunch menu hasn’t changed, I swear, in the 3 years they’ve been open. I used to go all the time for brunch but got bored with the same options. Change it up a bit!

    Ulah’s brunch is incredible. It’s been a while, but their breaskfast burrito (or quesadilla – I can’t remember which) was one of the best brunch items I’ve had in DC in the two years I’ve lived here.

  • [...] Ulah If your Valentine is a no-nonsense girl who doesn’t like a big fuss, Ulah is the place to be. It’s a cozy, relaxed grill atmosphere, but one with delicious food. So, you don’t have to sacrifice quality of cuisine for a more laid-back ambiance. As a professional doctor (you know, the doctor of love) I prescribe a bouquet of flowers and a rezzie at Ulah Bistro to cure your worries for having the perfect Valentine’s Day with your sweet honey love muffin. Not quite sold? Read the Ulah Bitching to get the skinny. [...]
