Brunch at Alor Cafe

Alor Cafe is probably three in my top 5 brunch spots.
They have a decent herbal tea selection and make a great ice coffee. (not pictured) I ordered the African red tea which was really, really good.
Veggie omelet and mixed green salad.
Eggs, spanish sausage, onions, and potatoes.
The veggie omelet was around 7 bucks, the eggs skillet was around 8 bucks and the crepe was 9.
Nutella, bananas, strawberries, and dulce de leche crepes. D-E-L-I-S-H.
Oh and not only is the food good, the decor is cool as well. Look at that freaking table, it's glass with coffee beans and dried flowers. I want to own that table.

Underwhelming Taqueria

This past weekend I went to Taqueria LES. It's a hole in the wall with pretty cool decor. 
The food was cheap and decent. Positively NOT the best Mexican food I've had and I definitely wouldn't go back.
My friend Gabriella ordered the enchiladas. They were authentic tasting but the chicken was dry.
Paula and I ordered the fish tacos. They were alright. No real complaints. But I bet I could have made a more delicious fish taco.
I ordered potato flautas as well. Those were yum. It was the only thing I was really pleased with.
All in all I give Taqueria LES a 5 out of 10. It was super noisy, overcrowded, and the food was underwhelming.
For dessert we went to one of my favorite place, Little Cupcake Bakeshop
That heavenly thing up there is pecan caramel cheesecake. It was so dense and delicious.

Weekday Dinner Dates

Monday night I went to San Loco for a quick bite and drink before heading to the Mercury Lounge to see my archaeology professor's band.
My puta and I got mango margaritas. They were tropically delicious and not to mention pretty strong. Quite the perfect summer drink! 
But unfortunately it's not the summer..
That up there is a big pile of vegetarian nachos.
San Loco: Gringo Mex
King Charles the Martyr at the Mercury Lounge.
Tuesday afternoon I meet up with my gurl Sasha Lame
We headed to LES to go to one of my newfound favorite places The Meatball Shop
I got a meatball pesto hero with a side mixed green salad. Their pesto is seriously the best pesto I've ever had.
Sasha got the meatballs and spaghetti in parmesan sauce. It was so creamy and cheesy.
