Blink and you might miss Pullman Kitchen & Catering, the 400-square-foot kitchen at Quarry Ponds. Friends and family raved about this little Granite Bay gem so I was excited to visit on a recent afternoon. Derived from the long sleeping cars on passenger trains created by the Pullman Company during the 19th and 20th centuries, the term “pullman” is an architectural designation for a narrow space within a structure, usually in reference to a kitchen. Indeed, the first thing one notices is the eatery’s size—and the fact that there’s only one person manning the joint. Sovy, the owner and chef, cooks all the food to order, so it’s best to call your order in before you come. As we waited, Sovy intermittently placed a huge fresh loaf of rosemary bread on our table, followed by a large organic mixed greens salad. Our brunch selections were brought out next. I went for the simply prepared yet absolutely delicious Chicken Apple Sausage, served with fluffy scrambled eggs, a side of fruit and toast, while my dining partners chose Sovy’s albacore tuna sandwich, Thai coconut curry soup, and the salmon. Our selections were all amazing, but it wasn’t quite over. Sovy surprised us with a round of her delicately complex crème brûlée and a to-go box of fresh fruit! This is one little kitchen that produces big-time flavors, so don’t blink. Pullman Kitchen & Catering, 5550 Douglas Boulevard, Suite 140, Granite Bay. 916-370-3223,
