My girlfriend Mel and I ate at Secret Garden Cafe for brunch over the weekend. It’s in cute old historic downtown of Occoquan, Virginia, with a cute little patio and hidden garden atmosphere. I ordered their brisket mash special and it was delicious! I’d definitely recommend this place for breakfast, brunch or lunch!
I’m attempting to eat more vegetarian this year when I cook at home. I admittedly haven’t been sticking to it 100 percent, but I’ve tried my best. This is a kale salad with pomegranate seeds, crumbled feta and breaded cauliflower. I mixed a little olive oil and lemon as the dressing.
If you are looking for a good lunch spot that will not break your budget in DC, try Amsterdam Falafel. They have a few locations scattered throughout the district with reasonable prices and great quality food. I got the falafel small bowl, and I was able to fill it with basically everything on their side bar.
Looking for a good dessert spot next time you are in New York City? Check out Spot Dessert Bar. This is the Banana Chouff and Matcha tea. It was good, but nearly as good as what my friend ordered. Get their Golden Toast, which sounds weird but is really delicious!
