Blue Plate Kitchen: Brunch review




      A gloomy November afternoon can be a hearty afternoon if you have a great array of delectable food. The thought made us visit blue plate kitchen with their conscious choice of locally sourced sustainable food. Modern set up with an open kitchen concept, a gracious welcome greeting made our warm-up instantly. As brunch was getting served in the afternoon, we ordered from the eclectic brunch menu, a perfect melange of American affair with global cuisine. We started our day with fresh squeezed orange juice. Little pulpy but with a homey and fresh feel personified. For the appetizer, I opted for Mediterranean platter. It consists of hummus, falafel, quinoa, tabouli, feta cheese, kalamata olives, pickled cabbage, cucumber salad and herbed crisps. An excellent appetizer choice for anybody and everybody with a decent amount. A combination of little guilt and guilt-free choices. I love crisp falafel and hummus.


      My son chose ginger chicken, a healthy choice of protein with a handful of curated veg choice, mint and ginger with lettuce. Succulent at the same time a high pick for the healthy eater. It was so filling that he did not care for the main. As I said earlier, their quantities are large.


      No wonder as a Mediterranean cuisine admirer, for mains I had it again, a veg whole wheat with wrap hearty hummus, feta cheese, crunchy cool cucumber and quoina tabuli inside and bed of salad and pickle cucumber on the side. A decent entry for lunch choice and you can also add your choice of protein.


      We ended the gloomy November day with a sweet note of oven-hot coconut cake and a wide array of strawberry and blueberry with housemade whip cream on top. My son said, he had the best dessert after a long time, and I can't agree more.

My rating is 3.5 out of 5

  11. I like the idea of the ginger chicken. It reminds me of Chinese Egg Rolls. It has ginger which spices up any recipe along with vegetables. It looks delicious and I am sure it tastes delicious too.
