brunch is definitely definitely my favorite meal of the day. i can eat brunch all day long. i’ve also resigned myself to the fact that this trip is going to be a lot of eating. i’m in fact still full right now, from another brunch meal.
it turns out that my best friend’s co-intern is one of the Rice BIOE’s. such a small world! so we all met up for brunch at Miss Shirley’s, one of the best brunch places in town. Van also invited my future husband. he was a very nice guy.
Miss Shirley’s was aweeesome. apparently they are in the running to be on the next season of America’s best foodtruck race on the food network, and they are trying to get enough votes for their truck to be on the show. can’t contest to their food on the truck, but the food in the restaurant was divine. also we were starving monkeys.
we started off with a plate of monkey bread to share, it was ooey, gooey, drenched in cinnamonny syrup, covered in bananas and chocolate chips with a cup of chocolate sauce to dip. i got the bayou omelet. van got the trio of breakfast sliders, karl got their award winning shirley’s affair with oscars, and ny-ying got the fried chicken and waffles. absolutely incredible.
