Weekend Indulgence III: Food Diary Jersey City and Brooklyn

This past weekend, I decided that I wasn't going to let the snow get in my way when it came to indulging in good food, so I headed over to Jersey City, where once again the food was impressive.

Ate at what used to be a food truck place now turned into a restaurant called Kraverie, Korean with French and Mexican elements.

What we tried:

  • Kimchi Bacon  Fried Rice with Galbi Short Ribs - Bacon and fired rice needs to happen more often.
  • Bibimbap with Bulgorgi Ribeye - Filled with tons of flavor,  could simply have a bowl of this all on my own. 
  • Kimchidilla with Spicy Pork - A fun play on a quesadilla.
  • Kimchi Cheese Fries - Definitely the ideal way to have fries.
  • Dulce de Leche, Bannas Walnut Crepe - Oh this was definitely the perfect way to end a meal. 

Overall, this was a fun discovery! Love the casual vibe, where you can enjoy great food with a fun play on it.

On Sunday, had to have that Sunday Brunch, so I decided to be adventurous and head out to Brooklyn for brunch. If you've read my previous posts, then you probably are aware that I haven't taken a liking to winter, however, can't believe there's a "however", I have been quite spontaneous and have not let this weather get in my way. So rather than spending (another) weekend at home, I hopped on the L train and headed to Brooklyn for food I knew was going to be worth not just the trip but the cold. I should also note, it makes it a lot easier when you have a good friend whose willing to be on board.

Had to go to Roebling Tea House for a proper Brooklyn Brunch...whatever you've seen on tv, Girls, or on tumblr dedicated to Brooklyn , all of this can be found here at this brunch spot. A bit annoyed at myself that I didn't have the courage to take pictures of the restaurant, or really the patrons (actually thought I saw Chloë Sevigny, but then realized every girl here looks like her if they have a blonde lob) okay back to the food!

    Can't have a brunch without a mimosa right?

The food:

  • Baked Cheddar Eggs with raisin fennel toast, grits, and apple butter - this definitely is a decadent breakfast, I mean toast with raisin and fennel, with a side of apple butter, can't find that at IHop. 
  • A Big Baked Pancake - A pancake that's really more like a pastry with an incredible custard in the middle, made with honey butter (like what exactly is that but I still love it) and stewed apples. 
The end results, me simply satisfied. 

Here are some photos of this weekend: 

                      Had to pose on the Williamsburg Bridge 
                     Only in Brooklyn....naturally

  13. the food looks amazing!! i love korean food! and thats cool you have the same dress :)

  14. These food pictures look amazing! Kraverie sounds like an amazing restaurant; French, Mexican and Korean inspired fusion dishes are definitely something that I would be down to eat. Also, I totally relate to your fear of taking pictures of the restaurant and the people dining there. I'm always afraid that I'm going to get in trouble, or somebody is going to be really annoyed with me.

  15. Oh my god, stop all this food looks so good. I love korean food so much (although I guess it's in my genes to love it!). This post is making me so hungry for the US - there are not so many korean places to eat here in Berlin, although Korean food is kind of becoming a trend here so we are having more and more places popping up thankfully!

  17. I want to try food from Kraverie! I love korean food! And it's a big mix with other cultural cuisines as well! Shame... I live in the UK :( But I guess I could try some mix and match on my own <3 (I make my own kimchi already - a huge kimchi addict haha!)

    I am now very hungry when i just had food! Thank you so much for sharing! :)


    Love your post! :)

  19. I live in Chicago and have a big disliking towards winter, but just like you I've been forcing myself to go out regardless. The cold weather won't win! It looks like you had an amazing weekend filled with unbelievable food- all of that sounds so delicious. My favorite are restaurants that have infusion food, like the Korean and French place. It always surprises me how such different tastes can come together in such an interesting and fun way. And I feel you- I'm always so shy about taking pictures in restaurants, but the end result is always worth it. When feeling nervous, just pretend you're a tourist. They take pictures of everything ;) Or at least, that's when I say when a curious waiter asks me what I'm up to, haha!
