It is Mothers’ Day today but I had a flight to catch at noon so the family compromised on a quick brunch at the Newport Mall, which is right across the airport. Dad wasn’t able to come with us since we had some repairs going on back at the house so we just takeout food for him.
We opted for Cafe Creole from among the row of restaurants since we previously had cake and coffee there, and so wanted to try their breakfast fare. We had the fastest brunch ever, but I must say, one of the best I had. When I looked at their menu, I thought that most of their offerings were too expensive, but when the orders came in one by one, I was aghast at how big the servings were! The restaurant specializes in Creole or Southern Louisiana cuisine, which has French beginnings.
Beef Tapa dirty rice (Mmmmm, beef sirloin and rice cooked in the same pan where the tapa was fried. Soooo good!)
Bourbon St. Hangover Breakfast (this is like the platter for those on death row. Eat like there’s no tomorrow! lol)
Bacon and Egg Omelet
Fresh grape juice
This is my kind of food! I could eat here everyday without batting an eyelash. I like the all-American vibe, plus the barbecue and pasta constitutes what I call heaven.
My beef, though, is their serving time. It was all worth it though. The mini carnivore platter we had has the right combination of pork, beef and chicken with salad, fries and corn on the cob. One has the option of changing the variations so we had the hickory spareribs, grilled chicken, and sausages. It’s good to have a little of everything. Next time, I’ll try the seafood platter.
