Julianna's Crepes

Julianna's is in a pretty little house in Inman Park, very near Krog City Market. Street parking is available and I'm sure the locals enjoy walking over for a treat. They serve both savory and sweet crepes, so this isn't just a snack bar. I would think that a crepe and a coffee would make a great breakfast.

This is the chef making my crepe. He is using the classic French crepe setup: he pours a dollop of batter onto the round cooking surface, then spreads it with a wooden wiper. A wide flat knife is used to gently flip the crepe.

My standard crepe order is a Nutella, but I decided to try something different. My lemon and sugar crepe was wonderful. The chef squeezed about a half of a lemon onto the crepe while it cooked, imparting a delicate lemon flavor. Crepes are French comfort food; mine was a great comfort on a rainy day.

The coffee was great, too. It had plenty of body without an overwhelming amount of acid.

Serious Spices

During our Bengali breakfast session, Milu showed me her spice tray. All the spices here are whole and unground, allowing them to stay fresh for longer. She explained that this type of tray is standard issue in Indian kitchens. But the tray only her first line of defense in her never-ending war against boring food. This is her pantry. You can see the vast array of spices and flavorings that make up the core of her stock. I can't think of a better illustration of the palate of flavors that make up Indian cuisine.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Tucker: Monterrey

This restaurant, part of a regional chain, has been in the neighborhood for untold ages. Its feel is cozy and welcoming. The staff is very nice. I ordered an interesting dish, pork and cheese on a sizzling platter. The cheese makes this a very different dish from fajitas. The cheese browns and crisps up, putting a real spin on the pork. The browned cheese complements the sweetness of the pork to make a very umami dish.
