Brunch at The Breslin

Baked eggs with spiced tomato and chorizo

Hello there folks!  It's been forever ago since the last post but we just got off for summer break and kind of got swept away with all the freedom.

Cathy's off in Taiwan eating (hopefully gorging down that delicious food), so in a month or so, there will be some international food posts!  So exciting   But for now, back to New York.


Inside Breslin, there's animal decor everywhere.  Like framed portraits of cows and hanging deer head on the wall.  It could be a good reminder of what you're eating

We actually came here for this dish.  We saw some photos of baked eggs on another food blog and started salivating on the spot.  Then we found out Breslin had a delicious version of this dish and it automatically became part of our food schedule in New York.

(Yes, we made a food schedule for New York and if we must say so ourselves, it was amazing!   Super detailed down to the hour and addresses.  Our love and dedication to food!)

The baked eggs were delicious and lived up to our expectations.  The eggs were served with crispy toasted bread to dip.  Have to say though, the dish was a tad heavy for brunch, being a bit on the salty side, but delicious nonetheless!  It's kind of like how potato chips are salty but also so so good you just can't help but keep cramming them in your mouth (but of course this is better than chips on a thousand levels).

Deep-fried Cotechino

The Deep-fried Cotechino was a special that day.  Cotechino is a Italian sausage similar to salami (did a little Wikipedia research when we got home to learn more about this yummy stuff).  The sausage itself was wonderful and the crunchy texture of the deep-fried goodness...mmm...calories in good use!
