Now that things have started to slow down because it's finally summer (!!!), the 3girls took a trip into NYC (the greatest city in the world) to sample at our new fave summer spot, HoneyBrains. Located in the heart of Nolita on Lafayette Street, HoneyBrains focuses on a few major food groups: vegetables, whole grains, fruits, legumes and omega-3's, to prepare delicious dishes including salads, juices, bowls, toasts and more.
Take a look inside of our experience at HoneyBrains from this past week! Did you know that HoneyBrains offers some of their own honeys, as well as many from other healthy beekeeping practices? Some honeys sold at HoneyBrains even come from New Zealand!
In addition, HoneyBrains also offers their own supplements available as part of their Wellness Nook in their shop or they can be purchased online! Check them out!
As we took a look around, we were blown away at how diverse the menu was. There was so much to chose from! But we had to stick to the classics to start off, so we ordered one of their homemade juices. We chose the Sage Thinking, and it was more than just any old green juice. It was the perfect combination of sweet and savory, and it tasted super refreshing on a hot summer day.
Next, we got right into ordering a little bit of everything. The 3 of us ordered a bunch to share, because we felt that there was so many fabulous dishes that sounded SO GOOD!
First up, THE TOASTS.
There were so many toasts to chose from, from their Simple Salmon Toast to the Honey & Butter Toast. We finally chose the Avocado Crush Toast (basically avo toast but still so freaking good. Just look at that mashed avocado!), the Dark Chocolate Ganache & Praline Toast (basically a dessert and we wished we had ordered like 5 extra ones to take home because it was insanity.) and the Mixed Mushroom Toast (not pictured above :(). The Toasts are super flavorful and filling to share or to have as a main meal. Everything hit the spot, from the bread to the toppings (like those crazy candied pecans!!).
Next, THE SIDES.
We only ordered one side to share, the HoneyBrains Spiced Sweet Potatoes, but all of them sounded so yummy! They are perfect for pairing to share or as an add-on to your main dish.
And finally, THE BOWLS.
We sadly only ordered one bowl, because we had so much other amazing things to share, but the HB Spiced Chicken & Rice Bowl pictured on the very left was absolutely incredible. It was nothing like we have tasted before! The chicken was seasoned perfectly and was so flavorful. The rice, chickpeas and spinach also complemented the rest of the bowl beautifully. All of the components combined were so unique and this bowl was definitely one of our faves out of everything we ordered! You guys have to try it!
