October 15, 2016

It’s almost mandatory for weekends to start with a delicious brunch and my recent favorite has been L’Oca d’Oro. This contemporary Italian restaurant just opened this summer in Mueller, blending old world Italian tradition with modern technique in a comfortable dining experience.

Scroll down for pictures of the restaurant. I loved the quiet colors and plant-filled dining room.

Go to L’Oca d’Oro for brunch and then check out the Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller on Sundays for fresh groceries and local goods. The Thinkery is located right next door to L’Oca d’Oro too!

Fried duck egg, fingerlings, and red onion agrodolce. My favorite dish that I tried at L’oco O’doro that I will be coming back to brunch for. The crispy potatoes were delicious!

Sausage & Egg Muffin

Rabbit-pancetta sausage, piperade butter and english muffin. I was/am obsessed with L’Oca d’Oro’s freshly baked english muffin. Obsessed to the point where I begged them to start selling them!

Poached egg, english muffin (again, obsessed with this dish because of the english muffin), and hollandaise.
