Eurotrip, a Central European-themed eatery on the south side of Park Slope, doesn't skimp on the good stuff. Frankly, there are times when I wish they would: I don't know that shrimp and grits need mascarpone and pancetta. (What are shrimp and grits doing on a Central European menu, anyway?) But the kitchen gets it exactly right with their controlled chaos of a breakfast sandwich.
It's hard to do the beast justice in a photo--what it really needs is a dissection chart. A grilled bratwurst, caramelized onions, sautéed portobello mushrooms, house-made sauerkraut, hot pickled peppers, and two eggs, over-easy, are all crammed into a potato-onion hero from Balthazar. The magic happens when you pierce the yolks, releasing a rich ooze that permeates every bite. In case this isn't enough food for you, the sandwich comes with a heaping side of fried potato wedges. Skip the ketchup and dip them in the house-bottled hot sauce, which, made from a mixture of hot and roasted sweet peppers, is more ajvar than Tabasco.
The sandwich is part of the $14 brunch prix fixe, which includes coffee and a cocktail.
