food | eggs, potatoes, and fish tacos

December 8, 2014

Not only do I look forward to the weekends because of no school, but I also get to indulge in delicious food, especially brunch.  Thought I would share some pictures of what I ate this weekend because I don't go a meal without taking a picture (unless I'm home).  I love yelping, and I love going on food adventures with my friends.  

1. Cafeteria [located in Chelsea]: I've been wanting to try this spot for a while now but never got the chance until Evelyn and I found an art exhibit in Chelsea so I thought why not!  Originally, I wanted to try the Mac Attack, which is a sampler with three different types of mac n' cheese, because I love mac n' cheese.  Then I found out they had eggs benedict, and let's be real.. eggs benedict over everything.  I was a little disappointed at first because they only had smoked salmon or florentine benedict; I was expecting canadian bacon or some type of meat.  I settled for the smoked salmon, and I didn't regret it one bit.  I've tried smoked salmon from Clinton St. Baking Co. and I wasn't really a fan so I was a little skeptical, but this one was actually really delicious.  I also ordered the blackberry lemonade, it was good, but a little too sour for my liking.

2. Le Peep [located in Edison, NJ]: Two days in a row of eggs benedict, my tastebuds sure were happy this weekend!  However, this dish didn't have as much flavor as an eggs benedict dish should so I wasn't as satisfied since I ate such a delicious brunch the day before.  The hollandaise sauce was a bit less flavorful than any benedict I've eaten.  I probably should have stuck to the classic eggs benedict instead of getting the crab cake one.  

3. Potatopia:  I've passed by this multiple times due to its location near Umami Burger (yum) and I've never thought to go in until Saturday while in Jersey.  On the menu is a list of the form of potatoes you wish to have, tater tots, curly fries, smashed, baked, etc.  You can customize your order from scratch, but there are also pre-made menu options, while still customizing to your particular liking.  We got the Curly Sue and it was so. good.  If you're ever around one I suggest you try it! Their sauces are super flavorful and they have a good variety. 

4. The Grey Dog [located in multiple NYC locations]: Fish tacos are usually my go-to type of tacos, and I've read good reviews about the baja fish tacos from this spot.  The dish comes with three fish tacos, each having two pieces of fish, a small salad, and sauce for the tacos (tastes a bit like chipotle mayo? which I love.)  The portion size is pretty generous and I get full off of two tacos, but then again I don't eat a lot in one sitting.  While some places have 20% fish and 80% batter, I would say The Grey Dog's fish to batter ratio is maybe 60% fish 40% batter, still a lot of batter but it works and isn't overwhelming.  The taco + the sauce = party in your mouth especially if you love chipotle mayo.  

Food is life.
