What's better than Sunday Brunch? Labor Day brunch, duh! We celebrated the day off with a trip to The Flying Cock, a funky pub in Murray Hill, NYC. They are known for their ridiculous "bottomless brunch." And when we say ridiculous, we mean ridiculous. We had a chance to enjoy our food outside (Hurricane Hermine, who?) on the lovely holiday. Here's a look at our visit!
The Flying Cock is one popular place in Murray Hill. It was PACKED when we first arrived at its opening hour of 11am. Now when we say packed, we mean that foodies (including ourselves) lined up on the street waiting for the doors to open. Once we were seated, we admired the charming decor the restaurant had to offer. The Flying Cock has lovely sidewalk seating that consists of beautiful wooden tables and trendy metal blue chairs.
And now for the food! Honestly, we wanted to order everything off the menu. It all just sounded sooo good! From the Avocado Toast to the Huevos Rancheros to the Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes to the Breakfast Waffle Sandwich to the Skinny Grilled Cheese (the list goes on and on), we had no idea what to order. After a long few minutes of discussion, we chose the Breakfast Waffle Sandwich and the Huevos Rancheros.
Everyone meet our new BFF: the Breakfast Waffle Sandwich. Talk about an epic cheat day meal. This guy is made up of two crispy waffles, stuffed with bacon, fried eggs, avocado, and cheese. What more is there to ask for in life?! Bonus: it comes with fries and extra yummy maple syrup. The BWS (that's what we're calling it from now on) was insanity. The sweetness from the waffles complimented the savory goodness in the sandwich so perfectly. We wish we could eat it again through the computer screen...ugh, it was just so delicious. Now onto our other BFF, the Huevos Rancheros...
Scrambled eggs, sour cream, guac, salsa and beef chili on top of a crispy tortilla with a side of home fries. What a BOMB plate of food right there folks. The dish had the perfect amount of spice to it as well as crunch. All of the components were super fresh and colorful too! So yummy!
To top it all off we had to get dessert. C'mon, what's brunch without DESSERT!? The Flying Cock has a pretty awesome dessert menu. They offer an amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich and Deep Fried Mars Bars. For those of you who don't know what a Mars Bar is, it is a delicious British candy bar, similar to a Twix or Snickers.
The desserts were absolutely ridiculous and so tasty. The Mars Bar was hot off the fryer; the way we like it :). And the best part was that it was paired with vanilla ice cream! What a great combo. The Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich was like no other that we had had before. The cookies were crispy with the right ratio of chocolate chips to cookie. They were pressed together beautifully with a great amount of ice cream as well. Aaaah so yummy!
So that is our write-up on our visit to The Flying Cock! We had a wonderful time at the popular brunch spot and the staff was so so so friendly. We highly recommend you all stop by when you're in town. Trust us, you will have a very hard time choosing what to order because it all is just so good. Thanks to Ivonne, Jessica and the entire team at TFC for hosting us! See ya next time foodies!
