Only the address of Mamie Taylor's would make you think the food would lean towards Asian - once you're inside. There are certain hints to suggest what lays waiting for you.
...it's quite an unassuming entrance amid the fruit & vegetable stands and meat markets of the rest of the street.

Once inside, you'll find the front furnished with high tables and stools while the back sports a long banquette for comfortable seating for your brunching. The exposed brick wall, wood tables and assorted, mounted taxidermy make for a quirky, rustic and fun setting.

Mamie's has great touches on the table too - tea-towel style napkins (three cheers for cloth!) and sake carafes for the cream in your coffee.
Breakfasts are hearty and we did our best to cruise the menu and make as many selections as possible (but I lament not trying the veal tongue croque monsieur - next time!).
First up - the fried green tomato B.E.L.T. (with a "still-runny" fried egg, served on toasted multi-grain with home fries) and the chicken & waffle (the former was crunchy, but moist and piping hot and the latter was crisp, despite the weight of the large fried item it was under).
Dish three was a special of the day - braised pork belly benny (chili-spiced and served in a cast-iron pan with super-soft poached eggs, smooth hollandaise, green chilies and a side of grilled cornbread - this was excellent). #4 was the classic "breakfast!" (2 scrambled eggs, toast, home fries and a side of thick-cut bacon).
And finally a fruit salad (a generous amount of fresh-cut fruit topped with yogurt and sprinkled with granola) with a side of waffles (topped with fruit).
