Allston Brunch Buzz: Delicious Deep Ellum & FoMu

Boston's restaurant scene is really booming these days. There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from, each with a different spin on your everyday meals. Even Brookline's Regal Beagle Chef Stacy Cogswell was recently chosen as a contestant on Top Chef. The city is slowly transforming itself into a foodie destination, and it's exciting to be here to experience it!

One venue we've been wanting to chow down at is Allston's Deep Ellum. After finally venturing out there, it turns out it lives up to all the hype! Read on to find out why.

The tattoo-centric, rock star vibe of Deep Ellum really reminds me of some of the best spots back home in San Francisco. We chose to sit outside on the patio, which was packed with people yet we had no wait! That's the best balance if you ask me. 

The sun was beaming down with all its strength, but thankfully the venue set up colorful bright orange tents to protect their diners. If only these tents would ward off the buzzing bees that seemed to be just as enamored with Deep Ellum as the patrons!

How magnificent does that look?? The entire menu was seriously mouth-watering. From the portugese sweet bread french toast, to the kielbasa and egg sandwich, it was hard to pick just one.

Nick ordered the Duck Confit Hash, which came complete with the braised swiss chard, fingerling potatoes, and red peppers topped with two fried eggs. 

The dish was presented on an adorable skillet, and was deliciously seasoned to perfection.

Though I usually go for the french toast option, I've been opting for savory as of late. I went with the Deep Ellum Breakfast Burrito, which came packed with scrambled eggs, house made chorizo, potatoes, salsa verde, longhorn cheese and crema. I got the salsa on the side since I wasn't sure how spicy it was, but I would suggest to get it inside the burrito - it was so delicious I ended up dripping it on every bite!

The burrito was cooked perfectly and I pretty much devoured it. Coming from someone who prefers a sweet dish in the morning, this should tell you how great the dish is! It was hard to put it down.

My go-to rings at the moment. The horseshoe ring is from one of my favorite Boston boutiques, Bobbles & Lace, and the oui ring is from The Fashion Truck! I'm pretty obsessed with them both.

After brunching, we took a stroll and stumbled upon an interesting ice cream shop named FoMu. This paleo shop in Allston offers all coconut-based ice cream, so of course I had to try some! I picked my favorite ice cream flavor - chocolate chip cookie dough. The flavor was certainly interesting, and perfect if you have a dairy allergy or are on a paleo diet. 

All in all, Allston seems to have a lot of interesting food venues to choose some! We can't wait to come back and visit again.
