I had a hankering for @andy_low_n_slow Oak-smoked ox cheek tostadas w/heritage tomato salsa roja, crema and coriander. Worth the round trip. Go grab some if you’re heading to @independentbirmingham festival tomorrow. Seriously good @tacos. Great to see you guys today!
Are you ready? No, you’re not ready for these Cuban-inspired breakfasts and bakery offerings from @RestaurantHabana in Irvine, Ca! Well get ready!!!!! Whether you’re a breakfast goer in search of a more traditional plate of eggs and bacon, or something a little sweeter, the offerings at @RestaurantHabana are sure to please. Grab a table on the romantic patio or under the custom ornate chandelier in the dining room, and transport yourself to a warm morning in Cuba. Put those forks up and prepare to indulge in plates such as their popular French Toast A La Habana (cornflake-crusted brioche soaked in a rum custard with guava jam, coconut syrup), and their elevated breakfast sandwich, the Medio Dia (a house-made croissant with egg scramble, applewood smoked bacon, roasted pork, and swiss). If you’re feeling trendy, dig into their Avocado Toast (sourdough with fresh avocado smash, roasted cherry tomato and a sunny side egg). Their exceptional breakfast menu is offered daily from 7AM to 11AM.
In addition to the incredible breakfast offerings, @RestaurantHabana at The Irvine Spectrum has their very own in-house bakery. Bakery Habana offers an array of authentic house-made Cuban pastries as well as exclusive, aromatic coffee blends. Talented Pastry Chef Katherine Russ provides outstanding bites to be enjoyed in-house or to-go, such as Guava Pastelitos, Papa Rellanas, varietal fresh Fruit Tarts, and more. And if you haven’t tried the Café Cubano yet (an edible chocolate teacup filled with dark chocolate cake, espresso drizzle, caramel, coffee cream, coconut whipped cream, and edible gold flakes) you’re seriously missing out! With its own entrance, Bakery Habana Irvine is exceptionally accessible and offers its own inviting ambiance. Best of all, you can visit the bakery anytime between 7AM and 10PM, making it the perfect stop for your morning pastry, mid-day meetings over coffee, and even a post-dinner night cap.
Do yourself a flavor and head on down to @RestaurantHabana for breakfast or the bakery for a treat on the go! They also do the most phenomenal Sunday brunch! But don’t get me started on that!
Special Thanks to @RestaurantHabana &
In Italy, there is a tradition which consists of feasting on a 7 course pescatarian meal on Christmas Eve! We’re celebrating with the “Padella Di Mare”: Grilled MA lobster and wild shrimp, steamed wild Chatham mussels and clams, pan roasted local market fish in saffron broda with housemade crostini. It was amazing! 😍
