My eyes were closed for this one, in case you're about to make an Asian joke. But man, that hot sauce...well. Let's backtrack a little bit.
This past weekend I went on a little Brooklyn adventure with my friend, Nikhita. We met up at the Brooklyn Flea and hung around for a little bit before realizing that we were starving..so we got some doughnuts (she got toasted coconut; I got lemon poppyseed) and sat down on the hottest asphalt that has ever made contact with my upper thighs.
We ended up going to this very cute place called Martha. I'm not saying that the staff there was amazing, but..no, wait, yes, I am saying that they were amazing. And everything came out quickly! Nikhita got the Korean-inspired sunny egg & pork, while I ordered the pork bao -- and we both got a beer each.
But, let me talk to you about this hot sauce. I don't know why I feel like I need to talk about it because it definitely is not the hottest I've had, but damn, it was spicy. That sauce was packing. My face was tingly afterwards and Nikhita commented that my face was red like I was blushing.
You just have to go and get the hot sauce and smother your food in it because it is delicious and hot and clears your sinuses. Boom.
If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend checking this place out. It's ridiculously cute, has an awesome outdoor area in the back, and the staff is really great. I don't know what else to say other than they were super friendly.
After brunch we headed back to the flea market to browse, but couldn't really find anything that we liked. So I took Nikhita to a little boutique in Park Slope that I adore -- it's like a pop-up Etsy shop and has little dainty jewelry that I am all about these days. My lovely friend even bought me a ring, which is the cutest ever.
Afterwards, we went into the city to take some photos at Warby Parker (oh, yeah, and to get her glasses fixed), then up to Liquiteria to meet up with our friend, Ross. We hung out for a bit, then Ross and I met with one of his friends for dinner.
We walked the High Line and then headed over to a place called Horchata. Really cute, kind of expensive, but pretty yummy. And free shots! But on our way there, we saw strange numbers in the sky...still not sure what they were for, but we stared at them for a good couple of minutes trying to figure it out.
