All Hallows Eve


How often are you looking for a gateway to food adventure? Specialty food is a click away but thats not why I am here. I am here because today is Halloween and Halloween in NYC is a big deal and when I say "big deal" I mean BIG DEAL.

We have some pretty creative people living here and the Halloween Parade is the go to event of the night.

Get your self loaded up with a nice brunch from Mogador Cafe and make sure you have a lovely brunch partner. My partner was the charming Victoria K from Mission: Food. I still look like I havent left the night before and I feel that way too - I went to sleep when the sun came up and I was late to meet for our "noon-ish" date.

Mint tea - simple, sublime, perfect.

We both had Haloumi eggs while Mona had the Moroccan eggs - hers came with hummus- oh did I forget to mention that Mona came along - yup - we had Banana but no Pup. Lovely visit, lovely brunch and a perfect day for a parade. Have a safe and happy Halloween.

I can always count on you to make me hungry.

Off to the kitchen to scrounge....

Ahh, the tea looks so good! And I've still never tasted hummus, but I really want to, it looks like something I would like. Maybe I have to try making it myself...

Great way to celebrate Halloween. The tea looks beautiful with the brunch.

It looks like NYC is wild on Halloween. Our neighborhood here in Florida was full of parties and trick or treaters of all ages, but not as daring and dangerous as the city.

Looks like you are having lots of fun...halloween is no big deal here sadly, perhaps it'll catch in a few years' time.

Glad you had a good brunch. I'm up late too many nights, but that's a good way to see the sunrises. Halloween here is all about kids. Too bad more and more people aren't participating.

Halloween in New York City takes on somewhat of a different "look" than our celebration here in Highlands Ranch Colorado. ;-)

Eggs and hummas. Love it.

Looks like the ghouls, goblins and zombies were out in full force in NY. :)

Cool halloween photos!! Both of those breakfast plates look top notch--I like the idea of hummus and eggs.

I'm just going to say it:

Boobies.

Okay now that that is out of the way...what a wonderful brunch!

Pam said...

Both breakfasts look delicious! The tea sounds great too.
