The power of Instagram was recently highlighted for me with the opening of the new Frisch and Barć in Como. I mean, I know how big of an influence social media is and I guess it depends on who and what you follow based on your interests but man, this place was all over my news feed. After all the photos I saw of that French toast pop up everywhere I just had to go check it out and I knew exactly what dish I would be eating. I know we’re all drawn to different things when it comes to food, and well, life in general, but this was a testament, not only to how much social media can influence your choices, but also, to how darn amazing that French toast was!!
I find going out for breakfast or brunch always a great idea in theory but too often I am disappointed with the food. I guess it’s because my love for going out to eat is to experience food that I wouldn’t or couldn’t cook myself at home so the standard bacon and eggs just doesn’t do it for me, because that, I can do (and pretty well too). It also drives me a little crazy that you often can’t book and have to fight against everyone else with often large lines and waits at busy cafe’s and without my morning coffee and an empty stomach, this never bodes well. So with more cafe’s doing interesting things, serving up dishes outside the norm and all day brunch becoming more common, my interest in going out for breakfast (or brunch) has certainly been reignited.
