ALL ABOUT FOOD
I am extremely excited for the weekend – I can’t wait to spend some quality time with me; to relax, to write and of course to enjoy a solo delicious brunch some place quiet.
Well my Dahlings Happiest Friday to you, whatever plans you’ve got for the weekend I hope it includes self-care, laughter and a great meal. If you’re not sure where you’d like to visit this weekend for a delicious meal, why not check out our Restaurant recommendations here, here, here and here.
THE SLOPE LOUNGE
I stumbled upon this restaurant when they had recently opened because we took a wrong turn and I was not disappointed. They feature a well curated brunch menu for Caribbean food lovers (Jamaican food).
I love the entire menu but if someone made me choose I’d start with the Jammin Jumbo Shrimp skewers, Oh Carolina Coconut Corn and Mango Salad. I would then move on to TSL Jamaican Breakfast (Ackee & Salt-fish my favorite) and if I’m eating meat it would definitely be the Red Red Wine Braised Oxtail. For cocktails TSL Coco Ting and the Kingston Mule are my go to.
837 Union Street, Brooklyn
Cozy spot with Caribbean Infused Cuisine – what more can a girl ask for. Great vibes, music that will have you dancing in your seat. Start with the Guava, Sorrel or Passion Fruit Mimosa, they are brunch perfection. The menu is small but wonderfully curated and features brunch classic like, Chicken and waffles but the Prime cast iron four cheese mac, Shrimp and Waffles (no one offers this) and Prime Pasta with Thai Chili Salmon should be a must order.

CHERYL’S GLOBAL SOUL
A Cute and Cozy neighborhood gem with a simple but delicious offering. I loved that this place has a kids menu so that my nieces could order their own meals. I enjoyed Poached Eggs over Salmon Hash, Buttermilk Pancakes with Mixed Berries, and Quiche Lorraine with Mixed Green Salad. What made this place special to me is that I had a nice brunch menu to choose from but I could have also opted for a sandwich or simple soup and salad. The hot-house Chai pulled it all together for me.
