Hellooooo to our old friend, The Brunch Dish series!
Here I am once again resurrecting an oldie-but-goodie series. I'm trying to be better at documenting ALL the food I've been inhaling. I've been pretty good about doing this over on my instagram, @thehobokitchen, but I do want to also post it here in a little more detail.
Last weekend I went with a few of my girlfriends to Miss Lily's for some Jamaican fare. There are actually two Miss Lily's locations in NYC and we ended up at the Soho location since it was very central for all of us. I've eaten at both locations and can confirm that the Caribbean food at both places are top notch. If you find yourself in the NY area I would definitely recommend giving this place a shot.
Typically I don't like to try Caribbean food outside of the Caribbean because I've found that it's usually not that great. However I had to eat my words when it comes to Miss Lily's, as their food is super tasty and very authentic. Apparently every other person in NY also thinks so. I would highly recommend making a reservation beforehand as it becomes quite crowded for brunch on the weekends.
Waiting for our table, so we decided to indulge in a Miss Lily's punch and a Carib beer.
The cocktail and brunch menus!
Loving the Jamaican theme at the tables
Fried chicken and waffles should be a staple everywhere.
A full-on Jamaican Breakfast - ackee and saltfish steamed cabbage, plantains, and fresh fruit (not shown)
Jerk Chicken Roti with rice and peas and cabbage. This was what I ordered and I absolutely loved it. I was really stuffed by the end of this meal, but I would still eat it all again.
The Breakfast Roti!
I capped the brunch off with a refreshing Frozen Caribbean Margarita containing sake and Ting.
