Eggs Benedict piled high with Canadian bacon. Biscuits smothered in sausage gravy. Golden omelets dotted with diced ham. Bacon. It’s safe to say that that brunching in Denver is typically a pork-tastic culinary affair.
Not so at Ash’Kara, which is now serving its take on the festive weekend meal every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Chef Daniel Asher, who helms the kitchen at the four-month-old LoHi restaurant, is staying true to Middle Eastern traditions—which means no pork. But you won’t really miss it when faced with options like Ash’Kara’s feather-light “sufganiyot” doughnuts, steak n’ latkes, a breakfast-y take on saganaki, and much more. The menu feels right at home in the colorful, plant-bedecked space, as do the za’atar-spiced Bloody Marys.
