Egg whites, cheddar, avocado and lemon aoli on a skinny whole wheat bagel.

And of course the obligatory large coffee cause this girl needs caffeine.

Breakfast Part 2: Crepes

Paris Creperie, Brookline.

My Breakfast: Orangina and a Nutella crepe w strawberries and bananas.

Justin's Breakfast: Nutella shake and south western crepe.

Much sharing occurred. 
Especially as justin was fixing his website and I was able to eat copious amounts of his crepe without him noticing :) :)

Breakfast Part 1: Chai Tea

Following the theme of our weekend Justin and I decide to pack as much as we can before we have to send him back to NYC.

Thus we have The Great Justin Visit Feb 2012:
Final Breakfast, Part 1:
Barista brewed chai tea at Quebrada.

About Quebrada:
This is a small bakery/coffee house by my apartment. Justin and I have spent many mornings enjoying their delicious coffee and croissants. (Mushroom and cheddar for the win!). To see said croissants read some of the old blog posts I'm sure there are one or two there.

Dinner at Five Horses Tavern

Finally get to introduce Justin to one of my new favorite places this Sunday. I'd probably describe it as Asian Bistro Fusion? So good. I can't go there and not get the pork belly tacos. Though they seem to change every time that I go there.  Not sure why. 

Everything was just as delicious as the last time I was there, the only downsides being our waiter who really needs to work on his timing. Seemed like his first shift as a waiter poor thing, didn't even realized we were put into his section for a good 10 min....

400 Highland Ave. (Davis Square)
Somerville MA 02144

My Meal: The End Game
Korobuta pork belly, Shelburne Farms cheddar, kimchi, pickled cucumbers, parsley and mayonaise on brioche. 
Served with cheddar jalapeƱo potatoes. 
Side note: I was not able to consume that entire sandwich. It was just too rich (the brioche being covered in butter I'm not surprised). Amazingly delicious though.

Welsh rarebit with Justin

The Great Justin Visit of Feb 2012;
Brunch Day 1: Welsh Rarebit

You take something delicious (eggs in a nest) and then add even more deliciousness too it (what is basically a breakfast gravy) and you get a breakfast that will leave you in a food coma afterwards. Soo good and fatty.

This is going to be a great weekend, I can tell all ready.

Justin and I plan on many more culinary exploits this weekend, so stay tuned.
