I have been many times at Tom&Serg for breakfast and enjoyed the eggs options and wraps.
The menu doesn’t offer many options as in other restaurants but I have always found something nice to have. The short menu has a positive side though. You are sure that your meal is prepared with the freshest ingredients available since the turnover is so high that the salad leaf in your plate had not time to wither in the restaurant refrigerator.
This time we went there for lunch, at around 1.30 pm and had to wait 10 minutes before getting a table. The restaurant, as usual, was packed with people. The furniture is very basic with visible HVAC ducts and other services pipelines visible and a warehouse look like style. Not that much effort to put together the shop I guess, not like other fancy restaurants that spent a fortune in decorating walls and ceilings, but it seems working well.
Two of my friends took the soup of the day, a huge plate filled with a carrot and lentil soup served with a slice of toasted bread. They said it was good even though they struggled to finish it because the portion was very abundant.
I didn’t want to eat the usual things like wraps or eggs and I opted for something unusual: warm salmon miso soba with boiled eggs, bok choy, tofu, edamame, garlic, soy dressing, wakame and other green stuff.
The meal was excellently balanced. The right amount of soy sauce and a great mix of edamame and seaweed gives to the soba noodles dish the right Japanese touch. I know that the boiled eggs look like out of place in that mix of ingredients but it wasn’t that terrible. Just pay attention to the coriander leafs if you don’t particularly like its taste. Luckily it is added at the top of the plate and it can be easily removed.
