second, third, fourth wind
it was a chilly and windy easter in new york. my brother and sister-in-law took me to brunch at cafeteria, a trendy and cozy resto located at 119 7th ave. i'm glad they chose cafeteria as it was the perfect place to celebrate easter. i love the modern interior and the food was delectable!
i was bit sad because tom and aryanna flew to l.a. to celebrate easter with tom's family. it's been a while since my husband has seen his mom, sisters, niece, nephew, and in-laws. it was also a perfect time for aryanna to bond with her dad's side of the family. i decided to stay in ny as i wanted to spend time with my dad, mom, brother, and cousins. i wish i had time to fly out to l.a. too as i miss my in-laws. they are quite a fun bunch to hang out with. you'll see what i mean in my coming entries. they are a hoot!
i read mixed reviews about this 24-hour joint, but after trying it out, i give it two thumbs up!
buko: i like your place here.
waiter: you should come here around 4 am and see the real cafeteria. *evil grin*
buko: hmm... i like.
i wish the weather was more agreeable. it would've been nice to eat al fresco.
cool cafeteria menus! i love how they used characters as models.
did you have a hoppy eggster?
i like haunts that have lots of lights pouring in. makes brunch cheery and delightful.
my sister-in-law, sheryl, is 5 months pregnant. congrats! aryanna's first cousin on my side of the family is finally on his way! it's a boy! woo-hoo!
enjoy the food porn!
i like splenda and skim milk in my cup of joe.
cafeteria's famous for its fried chicken waffle. i've never had them before, both my bro and sis-in-law ordered it, and it was divine!
i had my usual steak and eggs. it was ok, but not as good as the fried chicken waffle. dang!
instead of toast, i ordered a biscuit. i love their biscuit! it's crumbly with a hint of saltiness-- just the way i like it!
after brunch, i asked my sister-in-law to take a photo of me with cafeteria's façade, but it was too windy to capture a descent shot! grr...
