A few days ago I went on a date with one of my old roomies and best friends Amy. She missed my baby shower because of work, so she wanted to take me to lunch to one of my favorite places. I wish I would have gotten some pictures of the two of us, she is one of the sweetest most beautiful people I know and we had such a good time catching up for like 2 hours.
There are so many amazing places to eat around the Portland area and Babica Hen is definitely on my top 10 list. It has such a relaxed atmosphere, with a Portland vibe but a lot less divey. They serve breakfast all day (it doesn’t get much better than that) and their waffles are amazing. They also have some of the best variations of Eggs Benedict I’ve ever had, and a bunch of other things besides breakfast I haven’t even tried yet. I got the chicken and waffles this time, it has fried chicken, sweet potato mousse, toasted coconut and rum caramel drizzled all over a hot crispy waffle. I always have good intentions about eating half and saving some for later (easier said than done when you are 32 weeks prego) but this time I ate the whole thing and tried really hard not to feel guilty about it after.
For me, having a good balance of eating healthy most of the time, and treating myself now and then makes it so I don’t feel deprived most of the time, and helps me hold out for the treats that are really worth it. This was really worth it, I just have to stop myself from wanting to go every weekend! Anyone have favorite places to eat around the Portland area or anywhere else? I love hearing recommendations of places to eat close to home or for when we are traveling. Anyway I hope you liked this mini review, thank you so much for reading and have a happy Monday!
