But for a true representation of the South get the Southern Skillet. Besides eggs, grits, gravy and biscuits, this one comes with two pork chops.

  2. Pijiu Belly – "Pijiu" means “beer” in Mandarin. The name is fitting as the restaurant has a wide variety of craft brews. However, lesser known is the brunch menu.
