New York City is one of my favorite cities. My first visit was during my honeymoon in 2014. It was a culinary experience like no other, that’s why my husband and I decided to go back this past December. We visited for two weeks, and had the best time trying out new restaurants and places we weren’t able to last time.
There was one place we visited last time that we had to check out again: Maison Kayser. Authentic French ‘Boulangerie’ with several locations around the world. New York has a few of them. Our favorite has to be one of the Upper East Side locations: 685 3rd Avenue (at 44th St). When you go in, you’ll see the decadent pastries tempting you to try a bite.
We’ve tried the Pistachio Eclair and the Chocolate Tart. Both were incredibly delicious.
The pastries are wonderful, but the main player at Maison Kayser is the breakfast. You know when you eat something so good that you want to keep eating the same thing over and over? That’s how I feel when I eat at this glorious place. My favorite breakfast dish is Jambon Fumé & Deux Oeufs Au Choix (Smoked ham & two organic eggs scrambled, sunny side-up or soft boiled, toast). The french-style scrambled eggs are very creamy and delicious. You don’t need to add salt and pepper, it’s that good.
It’s a perfect breakfast: whole wheat toast, scrambled eggs and high quality ham. I’ve been looking at recipes online so I can recreate the french-style scrambled eggs at home. I’ve never had eggs like that over here, so I’m definitely craving it.
What’s your favorite breakfast dish? Do you have a favorite place to go to for breakfast?
Three weeks ago my husband and I stayed in Aguadilla, PR as a weekend getaway. About a week before heading off to Aguadilla I did some research about places we could go to. We stayed near the Ramey base in Aguadilla and about one minute away from road 110, and by doing a search online I found information about TBC Food & Drink.
TBC Food & Drink was opened by a couple from Washington D.C, Courtney and Christine Parks, who relocated to Aguadilla in 2012. They offer breakfast, lunch, brunch and cocktails. Their locale is unusual, they turned a small school into a restaurant. The way they decorated it was marvelous and unique. It’s the kind of place where you feel comfortable as soon as you go in, it also helps that the staff greets you in such a friendly way as well.
