monday funday, right?
this past week/weekend was a weird one for me, did anyone else feel that way? even though it was weird, i did end up trying some new food places which is always a plus! AND i even went to brunch…yes everyone, this is something that i rarely do!
here is where the food went down this past week:
- tacos el charrito’s food truck
- meat on the street food truck
- pedros, south american food
- north avenue grill
- simple cafe
tacos el charritos:
this place is always our go to when we dont feel like cooking and i blame the truck because its only a two minute drive from our house. i really only had their quesadillas but my thing is, if something is good why change it? jk! but their quesadillas are so simple, a little greasy but so good. i have had the steak before but i would have to say that their chicken is my favorite. and the salsas that comes with the meals are so authniec and spicy, i love it! (okay, the salsas arent that spicy but have a little heat to them).
meat on the street:
ugh i was so excited to finally try this anddddddddddddddddd i wasnt too impressed. although, i have never had filipino food (thats why i tried it). i got a a chicken coconut ginger bowl and i couldnt really taste the ginger and i could only taste a little of the coconut. i did like the straw mushrooms that were in it. when i was handed the bowl….its not what i thought it was going to look like. overall, the bowl was okay, just not what i thought it was going to be. i just wish it had more flavor.
all i got was a churro, and i loved every single bite.
north ave grill:
now this isnt in the neck of my woods but i was helping my friend ceci move. by the time we were done moving, we were SO hungry that we went to the closest place and that ended up being north ave grill. i have drove past this place so many times but never thought twice about stopping and trying. i got their buffalo blt wrap. and lets be honest, anything blt or buffalo is always something know you im going to get. i got their buffalo blt wrap with fries and loved it! it was just a simple wrap with everything youd want on it. there was enough buffalo and not too much of anything. it filled me right up!
like i said, i never do brunch but this weekend nick suggested that we go and im not going to say not no, duh! we went to simple cafe and i got what i always get, their mashed potato omelet. see a pattern here? when i like something and i dont go there a lot, i get the same thing over and over. i love this omelet because they stuff it with potatoes, bacon and green onions and they top it with creole hollandaise sauce…SO good!
i guess the take away from this is, dont be like me and try new things? or you can totally be like me and get the same things over and over again? totally up to you, i mean, i dont know why you wouldnt want to be like me 😉
have a good week my peeps!
