Apartment 1B

I have always wanted to try the food at Apartment 1B. For several reasons though, it took more than 3 years before I was able to do so. Luckily, today broke that unlucky streak when it came to Apartment 1B. Today, this greeted me for brunch.

Upon entering the place, the coziness of it is what would hit you first. You won't feel that you are in an upscale restaurant that is intent on intimidating you. Instead, you will feel that you are at home, albeit, a classy home.

My brother ordered the Croque Madame which is a a traditional Croque Monsieur served with a fried egg and a bit of B├ęchamel sauce spooned over the finished sandwich.

I on the other hand had the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Spinach. It is an American breakfast dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce.

Our other companions had the Apartment 1B Breakfast and the Egg Breakfast respectively. By the way they finished off their plate, I'd say they loved it just as much as my brother and I loved what we ordered.

The main thing I really loved about the food there was that it tasted like a home cooked meal but with a bit of panache. It was classy but cozy. It's just the feeling that I got when I bit into the food. Oh, and the potatoes need to have their own place in the menu. Yes, it was that good.

We also ordered 4 kinds of dessert and everything was just right. The crepe gateau was velvety, the flourless cake was creamy, the cheesecake just the right hint of cheese, and the frozen pie was absolutely perfect especially with the sprinkling of walnuts.

It was a brunch that was very much filling. We actually stayed way past the original time we allotted to ourselves because the place just felt like you were at home, hanging out with your friends. It felt like home; one wherein they served gourmet comfort food.

  1. I love the coziness of that place too. Despite the classy look and interiors, it has that warm feeling of home.

    Too bad I moved offices so it's been awhile since I went there.
