Location: 166 First Avenue, New York

Date consumed: 14 December 2014

What I ordered: Belly Doughnut & Smoked Char Benedict

Belly Doughnut
Belly Doughnut – pork, coconut, soy
Smoked Char Benedict
Smoked Char Benedict
poached egg, english muffin, hollandaise, home fries


Food rating:

Belly Doughnut: 3 / 5 – Good

Smoked Char Benedict: 4 / 5 – YUM!

Comments: I was craving eggs benedict and the ones I had at Clinton Street Bakery didn’t satisfy but this one DID! Although the first yolk didn’t ooze, their hollandaise was reaaaally tasty! Home fries were okay.

The belly doughnut was good but it could have been better. The pork belly though yummy, overwhelmed the entire dish. As a result you don’t really taste the coconut. I liked that the pickle slices were thin but I wished they put a few more.

Conclusion //

Really enjoyed both items, though the belly doughnut wasn’t rated YUM! I’d still recommend you give it a try!
