After prelims I needed to get the heck out of Philly, so I scored a super affordable ticket and got on a plane headed to Boston!
I did a bit of food research before the trip and the number one place I wanted to hit, was Zaftig's on Harvard Street in Brookline. Their entire menu is online, so if you live in Boston or are traveling near Boston, I highly recommend you check out the menu.
We went on a Friday morning, well early afternoon really. I was planning on having something sweet and coffee, but when I sat down and looked at the menu, something very New England jumped out at me, and Angela ordered us two mimosas before I even had time think about coffee, so my plan was entirely changed, but for the better.
Here is my McIntosh apple and white cheddar omelet, served with potatoes (cooked with leeks!), Rye bread, and fresh fruit. I don't like cantaloupe or honeydew, so these went uneaten, but I gobbled up the strawberries. The omelet was really delicious. We've all enjoyed the fruit cheese combination as an opener or in substitute of dessert, but this was a first for me as a breakfast, with eggs. The sweet/salty combination of the apple and cheese went nicely with the eggs and potatoes, and the champagne that came with the mimosa was not too dry, bringing my varied breakfast flavors together in a very excellent way.
Angela had the Challah French toast (which was delicious, she let me have a bite or three)and an over easy egg on the side. And of course, a mimosa. This is Angela's camera work (nice job, Ang).
And one of the 5 shots I tried to take of Angela with her drink, I'd post them all here, but she might be embarrassed and the rest of you might get bored. Now if only I posted the pictures of Angela from the Halloween party we went to on Saturday...no one would bored.
