[Brunch] Atlanta Brunchin’ Part II

As you know, I was in Atlanta last month. My favorite part was all the food, besides visiting my awesome sister, of course! Seriously, southern comfort food makes my heart eternally happy.

On another round of Atlanta brunches, today I’m sharing photos from Another Broken Egg, a delicious chain restaurant that left me in a state of happiness and sleepiness, all in one meal.

Baked brie for breakfast? Sure, why not? We ordered the delicious baked brie delight as an appetizer. It had apples, pecans and raisins sautéed in a Grand Marnier butter sauce over warm Brie cheese with toasted French bread. YES TO ALL THE BRIE.

Another Broken Egg Brunch Breakfast

Another Broken Egg actually has a really nice variety of breakfast options. You can go healthy, semi-healthy or you can go all out like me and order the Bacquezo. This cream cheese & bacon filled omelette with breakfast chorizo, Monterey Jack & green onions is basically heaven and hell on a plate. I never thought a cream cheese-filled omelette would be so good. I actually could not finish this, but that was honestly the best way to go.

Another Broken Egg City Grits Breakfast Brunch Delicious

Now, here comes the best part. We all know biscuits and home fries are great as sides, but nothing beats a nice bowl of grits. Unless of course, you are talking about  city grits, creamy southern grits, roasted garlic, onions & smoked Gouda cheese, topped with baked bacon, tomatoes & green onions. I mean, I think the picture speaks for itself. I’m gonna go ahead and let you drool for a little bit.

¡Buen provecho!

[Brunch] Atlanta Brunchin’ Part I

I love southern food, like LOVE. From crispy chicken to cheesy grits. I find all food so full of flavor and happiness that I can’t help but keep wanting more.

Last month in Atlanta, my awesome big sister took me around and basically allowed me to eat my way through the city. Every single meal we had during the long weekend was simply amazing. I think they all deserve individual attention and contemplation.

Let’s start with Goldberg’s Bagel Co. and Deli. I found it ironic that it’s New York-inspired but oh my, it’s everything a breakfast should be.

We started with the Reuben egg rolls. Something that, to be honest, I would not have ordered myself but thank goodness that my sister made the call because they were glorious. They came with a 1000 Island dressing for dipping, which basically made them irresistible.

I ordered the southern eggs benedict. Eggs and turkey sausage on top of a biscuit, crowned with gravy. I don’t ever want to go back to normal eggs benedict.

fried chicken biscuit and gravy

My sister went all out and got the fried chicken and egg biscuit sandwich. Please take a moment to appreciate the oozing of gravy and try not to drool.

We basically feasted on great food, for a super reasonable price. It’s nothing too fancy but the food is so good, there is no glamour needed to make this place the hit it is.

[Atlanta] Parks, Cocktails & Tiny Doors

When you travel, you get a sometimes annoying urge to compare everything you see with something back home. Whether it’s intentional or not, there seems to be a need to call out how certain things remind you of home or mention how you’ve never seen anything like this back home.

That being said, I really enjoyed my walk through the Atlanta BeltLine. Basically their own special version of the High Line in New York City. 🙂

I only got to walk a section of the trail, but it was a nice escape from the city. Even though you’re still technically in the city and it’s not that far at all. My sister told me about a series of tiny doors that you can find throughout Atlanta and just the idea of the hunt got me excited. There are currently 8 tiny doors. I was only lucky to find one along the BeltLine, but I was very excited that I did! Learn more about #TinyDoorsAtl here!

Through the BeltLine we got to Ponce City Market and let me tell you, it’s probably my favorite spot in Atlanta at the moment. Warning to my fellow Puerto Ricans, they pronounce it “Ponz”, I know it’s weird. Still, it’s such a cool spot. It has a trendy, old warehouse vibe with a booming marketplace and food hall. To me, it felt like a better version of the Chelsea Market in New York (there I go again, sorry).

We stopped at Mineros for drinks and had the best chips I’ve had in a whiiiile. They were the perfect state of crunchy and came with a set of salsas for dipping, all of them delicious. I wish I had had more time and stomach space to go through all the cool food spots in Ponce City Market but hey, I will be back!

Here are some other pictures of my walk that day through Piedmont Park and stay tuned for more Atlanta posts sharing all the delicious food I ate during my trip!

[Puerto Rico] Vieques Sunset

   
Vieques sunsets are beautiful and breathtaking, all without a filter. I know it’s getting cold for most of us, so I figured we could all use a little sunshine.

I’m spending some days down in Atlanta and I can’t way to eat my way through this city. Recommendations? Comment below!
