Seersucker in Carroll Gardens serves breakfast all day long, which in my book is the mark of a classy joint. I stopped by around lunchtime last week, but instead of ordering from the lunch menu I got some breakfast. Wouldn’t you? I got the sweet potato & hominy hash, which is topped with two eggs cooked any way you like. Hominy, if you’re not familiar, is dried corn treated with lime (calcium hydroxide, not the citrus fruit). This process allows the vitamin B in the corn to be easily absorbed by the body, and also makes the corn kernels swell up and soften when cooked. The sweet potatoes and the hominy made a great combo; I got my eggs over medium and when I cut into them the bright orange yolks ran out and coated everything. I added a few squirts of hot sauce, which made the dish even better. I may return to Seersucker to try the dinner menu, but there are still plenty of breakfast dishes I want to try there.
