Lady of Grand’s Pick of the Week: Frittata at El Rey
There is a small open kitchen in the back of El Rey since their expansion into luncheonette territory.
Above is the “Lost Bread” Egg Frittata with crushed avocado underneath and shaved fennel salad on top, drizzled with a sauce verte (herbs, garlic, and lemon juice). Frittata comes from the Italian word fritta, which means “to fry” but El Rey’s version is baked. The crunchy fennel salad and the sauce meld together giving the frittata an injection of flavor, and it is the attention to detail that separates it from other nearby cafes. It was the perfect morning snack for $7.
They are also starting a baking workshop series to teach you how to make some of their delicious pastries.
