Been living out of my backpack for the last five days on an excellent adventure...
I'm sorting through some interesting photographs I took with my gal pal Emelia who is also a photographer. We've been chatting about possibly filming a few scenes in Brooklyn, NY and Mexico so I've been casing New York City for some Zagat rated Mexican dining with my girlfriends who are helping me scout film locations. Since it is my birthday month my gal pals have been treating me to some really neat foody paradise treats for April while we run around collecting eye candy.
South Mexican Flan with Strawberries is a must have desert and I enjoyed my visit to this wonderful little hole in the wall in Park Slope, Brooklyn to get some. I also sampled something new that I think you may want to try. They do fried grasshoppers and guacamole there and since Emelia dared me to have some of course I had to rise to the challenge, then blog about it (LOL). Never thought I'd eat bugs for brunch but I have to say it was pretty darn good. Kudos and congrats to Emmy for teaching me something new this week (LOL). ;-)
They have a patio in the back beneath a tent that is really cool but currently being renovated so you can not eat outside until the construction is completed. We plan to go back to eat under the tent because we're hoping to film there this summer.
The front dining area is very intimate but well worth the wait if a table is unavailable when you visit. It would very very tricky to film in such a small space but not impossible. It's on our short list of possible locations. We all gotta eat somewhere, eh? ;-)
