For months I have been driving by Brooklyn Cupcakes. It’s on my way to football practice, I always say I’m going. Finally for my sisters birthday, that’s what she wanted. She wanted a french toast flavor, I thought that sounded interesting. When I got there I was overwhelmed by the different flavors. Coquito, tres leches, flan con quava just to name a few. I got the french toast, they added syrup on top (optional ), samoas, tres leches, guava and one vanilla. They were all amazing. They cake was light, moist and the frostings were not over powering. Definitely going back, there’s more flavors to try. They were also reasonably priced, $15 for half dozen.

Saturday seems to be my brunch day. My girlfriend was in town, we hit the streets early around 11. There was no wait, and they had inside seating under a beautiful skylight. Over the hostess table was a sign for a punch, I saw tequila and immediately was elated. Once we were seated I asked the waiter it was leftover from the previous nights special. Slightly disappointed, I ordered a mimosa, my girlfriend order the punch of the day. Both drinks were good. They make a pretzel, it’s warm, with grain mustard and salted butter, amazing. It’s on the menu twice, it is a favorite. I went with an egg white omelet, it had fresh herbs and was served with pickled onions and avocado. The combo was great, very savory. The farmer’s breakfast, on of their signature dishes, sunnyside up eggs, three kinds of meat, potatoes and toast. She ordered the eggs scrambled the concept was still the same. For dessert we had pancakes, the were delicious. Light fluffy, just enough powdered sugar and served hot. They had a couple of other interesting dishes. I would go back again for dinner and drinks.

For brunch, I do prefer to stay local, Brooklyn! My girlfriend from Boston was visiting and recommended this place. We had a array of items, I of course had the fried chicken. It was hot, crispy and had an amazing hot honey sauce on it. We had pancakes at the end of our meal like dessert, they were really good. They served homemade potato chips with my son’s breakfast sandwich. We had two types of baked egg dishes. Grits with cheese, deviled eggs and potato pancakes were our sides. I had a tequila based drink, my usual. I enjoyed the chicken, deviled eggs and pancakes the most. If I wasn’t on a quest to try as many restaurants as possible I would definitely go back.

Shake Shack has introduced a fried chicken sandwich. It is sold in three stores right now. It is so good. The chicken is crispy, the lettuce and herb mayo just right. The pickles taste homemade, I added onions. The hot and crispy chicken with the cool toppings made for an amazing sandwich. I had a caramel shake, skipped the fries this time. I will definitely be back.
I stumbled across a pic of an ice cream sandwich made with a donut. You can imagine my delight and zeel at the thought of the combination. My son has football practice four days a week, the only joy is that there’s so much food in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. I had a salad and drinks at Bedford Hall, so this was dessert. It was amazing. I had an old fashion cake donut with vanilla bean ice cream(Häagen-Dazs). The donut was perfect, just enough sweetness and crumble. It looks like the old fashion donut shop, counter and all. I will definitely go back for a different combination.
I have completely fallen off. For more reasons than I can even list. Day by day, I’m going to try to catch up. My son had a random Friday off and I decided to go here with him. I heard the chicken and waffles were good. He had scrambled eggs with cheese, home fries and toast. It was normal, nothing spectacular. My chicken was super moist and seasoned wonderfully. The waffle was light and crisp. The butters on the side were delish. Blueberry, lemon and herb. We also had the mac and cheese, it was so hot and cheesy, it was great. He had fresh brewed peach iced tea, I had apple ginger soda, it was amazing. I would go back and try a more savory dish.
Every now and then I have a Saturday where I can lounge around. Decided to get a burger on my way to the other side of town. I called ahead for pick up, one beef, one turkey, curly fries and a cajun fry too. By the time I got there, it was ready. It was the Flatbush ave location, so being ready was a big plus. The food was presented nicely, I liked the containers. By the time I reached my destination the food was slightly warmer than room temperature. I love that they have other cheeses besides american, cheddar was the way to go for me. The burger was cooked well, it could have been seasoned a little bit more. Both of the fries were great. I have dined in before and there’s nothing like a hot burger and fries. This was a pretty good take out experience.
My son turned 11 this year. He loves seafood, so I decided to take him to an all seafood place. This place immediately came to mind. We looked at the menu, my son quickly choose the lobster dinner. We asked the girl at the register about the size and how its served. Since I don’t eat lobster I needed for him to be able to take apart the whole thing by hiself. She tells us of a half a lobster special with diavolo pasta. He orders that and all the sides the lobster diner came with, corn on the cob, cole slaw and potatoes. I ordered the fish and chips. The side of the day was, cauliflower with capers and jalapenos, got that too. My son ordered a lemonade, I ordered one with tequila. We choose our seats at the front by the window. Our food arrived and everything was hot. The crisp on that fish was unbelievable. The taste was even better. The fries were good too. I tasted the lobster it was okay, I’ll never be a fan. My son devoured it. The pasta was great, just enough spice to not be overwhelming. The corn was sweet, the cole slaw needed more mayo and some black pepper. The potatoes were great, they were seasoned with thyme. The cauliflower was so good. Theat jalapeno and caper mixture was amazing. I have a thing about homemade pickles. They were so yummy. My drink never came. So I asked for a ginger beer to go instead. It was real beer, a spicy version. It was cold and refreshing. They refunded my money and gave me the beer on the house. I thought that was nice. This place is nice and simple. There is a outdoor garden area in the back. I have to go back to take my mother, she doesn’t eat meat. There’s about three non seafood items on the menu.
I saw this place on a television show. I figured hey, it’s in Brooklyn and looks interesting. Went online, saw something on the menu that called my name. My home girl from Boston was coming into to town and I figured we’d go there for brunch. It was crowded and a thirty minute wait. We opted to sit on high chairs by the open kitchen. I found a vanilla vodka based drink, it was light perfect for brunch. I ordered the Migas, it’s basically a Mexican inspired egg dish. The guacamole was tasty, it could use a kick of heat though. The tortillas were served warm. My friend ordered a bunch of sides. Nothing on the menu was that interesting for her. Cheese grits, a biscuit, eggs, sausage and home fries. The biscuit was average, the home fries were a little crisper than I would’ve preferred. The cheese grits were really good. I saw a few drinks that were interesting and the fried chicken sounds good. Not sure that’s enough for me to make my way back anytime soon.
