Breakfast is hands down my favorite meal of the day! Ok maybe brunch is also up there because I’ll put an egg on just about anything, let’s be honest. When you’re running on empty after a crazy night out at SXSW or ACL or you know just a normal Tuesday in Austin, then you’re going to need a lot more than a green juice to get you up and at ’em. These are all of my favorite places for eggs, spicy noodles, and those things they call breakfast tacos!
Hello and happy Friday! It’s starting off a gray day here in Austin for weekend #2 of ACL. If I’m being totally honest I love gray days! Maybe it’s because we get so much sunshine here that sometimes I like a little cloud cover haha. I like rainy days too, don’t hate on me too much mmmkay? This week has totally gotten away from me and I haven’t cooked much like I usually do but I have been a blending queen! And you want to know why? Because the amazing BMW got me a Vitamix for an early birthday present! Basically if it’s blendable then I have been blending it! Smoothies all day, errryday! Pesto? Duh. Thank goodness I have all those basil plants growing in the backyard! The addiction to the green sauce it’s getting real y’all. Might be high time to take some holiday orders or give you another recipe or two on how to make your own! What do you think?
Also, I’ve had some really fun meals this week that I wanted to share! The above? Well that would be yer Saturday brunch at Jacoby’s! I went with my friend last Saturday and had the best start to the weekend! The weather was a little crisper than this weekend but their patio is the perfect place for a mimosa or three. I brought my dog and we had a leisurely brunch that definitely has me hoping to get back there real soon. I had the ham schinitzel and we both loved the biscuits! So now that they have brunch Saturday and Sunday there twice as many chances for biscuits!
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.
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!
Not a breakfast fan? Check out my visit to Elizabeth Street Cafe for dinner.
Update Alert: I did go back to Elizabeth Street Cafe for breakfast.
