I love food from other lands. They fascinate me. Not only has that, but eating inspired food, like the food I had at Crema gets me inspired. I have wanted to check out Crema on 17th street (between 6th and 7th ave) for a long while. I have always admired Julieta Ballesteros its executive chef. Being a female chef is not easy and she has made it big which is a feat in itself but she is also making an impact in the appreciation of Mexican cuisine. Mexican food is possibly the most exciting culinary tradition out there. All the fresh peppers and flavors!
So, my boyfriend and I went for brunch. I ordered the Chile Relleno de Papa con Chorizo y Huevo Poblano which for your non Spanish speakers (like me) is a poblano pepper filled with scrambled eggs, chorizo and potatoes, Chihuahua cheese and cilantro. He ordered a fantastic chicken casserole. We opted for the brunch special which was 19 dollars with a side and a mimosa. I think I should have just gotten the Chile Relleno ($14) because the portions where fantastically big! I just loved the crispy flour tortilla and the earthy delicious poblano pepper, and the eggs with the chorizo and cream! HEAVEN!
