Bloody mary bar at Five Bar and Tables, 947 Massachusetts St.

Slices of angel food cake are dipped, fried and topped with fresh banana slices and heaps of crunchy walnut halves, all smothered with banana walnut syrup. It’s like a warm, gooey dessert for breakfast.

Where to get it: Five Bar and Tables, 947 Massachusetts St. Saturday and Sunday mornings only.

What you’ll pay: $5

Try it with: Coffee. Or a bloody mary from Five’s build-your-own bloody mary bar.

Also on the menu: Sweet Potato and Turkey Hash, and Steel Cut Oatmeal with all kinds of toppings — but that’s only for weekend breakfast. The daily menu features sandwiches, wraps, pizzas, salads and small plates such as Thai Dumplings, Duck Confit Egg Rolls and Smoked Salmon “Lollipops.”

— Off The Beaten Plate highlights some of the more exotic, oddly named or inventively concocted (for better or worse) dishes from local menus. Know of an offbeat menu item we should check out?

Such an angel-food concoction for breakfast is one of the most hideous morning "meals" that I have ever had in my life.
