Still can’t get over the delicious brunch I had at Cafe Orlin in the East Village last weekend. I’ve been to Orlin for some yummy dinner but this was my first day time meal there. We had a mix of savory and sweet, starting with this Middle Eastern inspired dish below:
It’s called the Malawach, and they normally serve it sunny side up but Shahla had them serve it as an omelette stuffed with goat cheese and placed over a soft, doughey pita.
So we also kinda ordered salmon and eggs without the salmon — we got poached eggs instead over a potato pancake, and a side of deliciously rosemary-seasoned home fries.
For our sweet tooth, we went for the brioche french toast. It completed a fantastic meal.
I also loved the spacious, chatty atmosphere of the place…the way brunch should be! Props to Shahla for great pick :).
