Good Morning! How is everyone enjoying this rainy weather? I actually love the rain. Yes, its true. I love cloudy, cool, rainy, wet weather. Maybe it’s because rain is such a novelty around here but I do enjoy this weather. Makes me want to snuggle with my imaginary crush-lover, eat take-out in bed while watching my all-time favorite movie ever… My Best Friend’s Wedding. Any takers?
No? Ok… fine.
A few months back I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends at Elizabeth Street Cafe. While there I caught a glimpse of the breakfast menu and was immediately consumed with the thought of enjoying a Vietnamese iced coffee on the patio while discovering exactly what breakfast Singapore noodles were. One Sunday I pulled my roommate out of bed to go to brunch only to find out that Elizabeth Street Cafe only serves breakfast until 11am. My little heart was broken. But FINALLY last weekend I got the chance to go to breakfast there with my mom and it lived up to all my expectations.
Glimpse at the breakfast menu.
The Vietnamese Coffee comes with its own tiny little coffee press that you let finishing dripping at your table. Heart goes pitter-patter for this adorable little set-up.
After the coffee is finished, pour it over the tall glass of ice.
Stir that up and boom. Delightful Vietnamese iced coffee. What makes it Vietnamese? Sweetened Condensed milk. Its lovely and wonderful.
My mom got the breakfast Bhan Mi. This is the mushroom and egg white one. It was delicious and a generous portion for one.
And these are the Singapore Noodles. They have a spicy kick, so of course, I loved them! The fresh watercress gave a nice cool, earthy flavor. The plate was overflowing with noodles and I actually had enough to take home for another meal. This would be great to share!
Sliding yolk… these were delicious and just looking at these pictures makes me want to go back. Right. Now.
Not a breakfast fan? Check out my visit to Elizabeth Street Cafe for dinner.
