eeZ on Sunday
In looking for a non-conventional brunch time meal, eeZ certainly fits the bill. The fact that they had a certificate on Restaurant.com in December when I loaded up - BONUS!
eeZ Fusion is in Birkdale and opens earlier than just about anywhere else in there that does not service breakfast. We were taking our daughter to use some giftcards at a clothing store (that opened at 1pm apparently), and wanted to eat. eeZ it was and we are happier for it. They have a good lunch menu. During the week it comes across a little on the pricey side, but it's available 7 days a week, and on a Sunday, it's a good deal.
One lunch combo had a Samurai roll with spicy tuna, albacore, cream cheese and other goodies in a jumbo roll, dipped in tempura batter and flash fried. Pair with a salad for $12. It was just enough for an adult male like myself. My beautiful wife got a Cali roll combo (customized) and we were so-so on it. It was fine, but lacked any presentation. It was rolled loosely, so it started to fall apart putting it onto the soy for a quick dip. Our daughter got a chicken teriyaki stir fry with miso soup. First off, their miso is quite good. The large bowl makes it winner, the flavor was right on with not too much bonito flake and just the right amount of tofu and other goodies. The stir fry was a little heavy on the onions, which are not her cup of tea - but I have some lunch for today. It really was the best of the lunch deals.
Our server was above and beyond - even our daughter noticed. Drink glasses were well kept, he had casual conversation with us and really made a valid effort for a busy day.
I am not sure if they are coming back onto Restaurant.com any time soon. Birkdale gets busy in the warmer months, so it may be a while. We still have another certificate stored up. If you do find places you like that are on the program, they are good for 12 months. Stock up.
