So I started thinking about this Saturday night before I went to bed. Now you know it’s bad when you start thinking about breakfast the night before. I even started pulling up some menus to see what I thought might be the best place to go. Of course breakfast is a comfort food for a lot of people so Sunday Brunch is awesome.
So we were going to meet at a restaurant called Northstar Cafe in Columbus. They have great food and I’ve always enjoyed my meal there. The food is original and it’s good for you. Well I obviously wasn’t the only person who was thinking that Northstar would be good. When I arrived the line was back to the door. So it would have taken us about 20 minutes just to order.
Of course if you know me, you know that I’m not going to wait for 20 minutes in a line. So I called my friend who I was meeting for brunch and we made alternate plans. It was shaky but we went to Abuelo’s to see if they were busy.
Now Abuelo’s doesn’t serve breakfast but at this point we (really we’re talking about me) wanted some food. I have to say I was very pleased with my meal. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve always enjoyed my meals there but this time I asked for suggestions and the waitress suggested their Pescado Guerrero. I thought, what the heck, it’s seafood which isn’t something I would have thought of getting at a Mexican restaurant. Let me tell you it was delicious! I liked the vegetables, the sauce, and the Mahi Mahi. It was a wonderful dish and I completely enjoyed my ‘brunch’ there at Abuelo’s.
The other thing that I completely enjoyed was sitting and talking to my friend Ben. We just sat there and chatted for a long time. It was really nice to just reconnect with a good friend and not worry about what I needed to get done. It was also nice because I was stuffed and it gave me some extra time to let some of the food digest.
If you get a chance stop by Abuelo’s and try their food. It’s not your common Mexican restaurant. I think of it as being a step above and I’ve never had a bad meal.
