Domingo por la Mañana with The Food Jefe

27 Oct

My new Sunday feature starts today! For my English only speaking pals it says Sunday morning with The Food Jefe. Let’s go!

My perfect Sunday mornings are in full tilt. Today is an example. I’m eating my favorite desayuno ever…Esposita made me Paleo chocolate pancakes with blueberries. Had my Colombian coffee with a little hazelnut creamer and 2 alligators of chocolate syrup (see a trend?).

The ambience is hanging with Esposita and the dogs watching ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown. Raining and gray outside and Captain Jack trying to steal my pancakes. Heading to Mass soon and then on to more football. Sometimes we flip to Mass first and then desayuno but we were eating tapas into the evening last night and slept in.

What’s your perfect Sunday morning? Share it here on my blog or on my Twitter @TheFoodJefe. If you’re on Twitter and like my writing on food and other fun stuff, follow me!

That’s it for this Domingo. I’m fueled with pancakes and coffee and ready for a great day. Buenos Dias a todos!



Taking a Bite Out of The Big Apple Jefe Style #2

7 Oct

Night Update: Had a tailgating start with my pals at the Campbell Terrace outside (but covered by roof) of Grand Central Station. It was raining hard by the time I got there. Glad I packed the umbrella this time!

Tried a watermelon mojito as I am an aficionado. It was very good. Dinner that night was inside the train station in the mezzanine at a restaurant called Cipriani. The appetizer was a scrumptious Tuna Scottato that had tuna cut in medallions with fennel (one of my favorites) and balsamic vinaigrette. Dinner got even better with one of the special of the night, a pumpkin ravioli. Dessert need the feast with (what else for me) tiramisu. My friend Noah and I decided on a nightcap back at Campbell Terrace and I sipped on a Polo Match – Kentucky Ginger Bourbon, muddled cucumber, vanilla syrup, and fresh lime juice.

New York is really a happening place even on a Monday night. I’m back at the hotel watching the end of Monday Night Football and digesting to get prepped for another day in The City tomorrow.


Eat well,

Taking a Bite of the Big Apple Jefe Style #1

7 Oct

I know I haven’t been actually blogging a lot. Sorry. I have found that I really like Twitter. The brevity and simplicity of tweeting makes it easier for me to post. I encourage you to follow me on Twitter @TheFoodJefe. You can look off to your right and see my current tweets.

Back to business. I’m in the great food city, New York, NY. I know there may be some that doubt the validity of my statement, but so be it. For me right now, it’s the king.

Just came back from a really nice lunch with a friend near Times Square. She recommended a cool place called The Long Room.

The name fits the joint. You walk in and it literally goes straight back! Nice lunch menu. I opted to keep it light as I expect to eat big tonight. I had a Tuna Yellowfin salad. The tuna was cooked to medium (aka perfect). The salad was very flavorful and left me content, yet not stuffed. It’s definitely one to keep on my list for the next time.

I am sad that I don’t think I will be able to make it to Brooklyn this trip to visit my 2 Colombian restaurants. Not enough time on this one…I will have to take a rain check. El proximo tiempo!

I have BIG APPLE plans the rest of the week. Stay tuned to hear more about the Jefe taking a big bite of the Apple. Check me out on Twitter, too. Your taste buds will be glad you did!

Eat well,
