This Spanish tapas place with a very modern look, Boqueria, offers quite good brunch options. To me, it looked like a perfect place to take the girl you like out for a nice brunch date: very nice but not too fancy to scare her away. 😉 Or “girls only” brunch sounds really good  as well.

While I was waiting for my friend to show up (I went there even before they opened but they were very nice and hospitable!), I had some of their rose wine with tequila. VERY DELISH! They do have a lot of drink options that are apparently really good according to online reviews. Only if I was much of a drinker!! Also, their dinner menu look really fun. However, we decided to stick to typical brunch dishes.

That’s right! Huevos Benedictos! I normally don’t get eggs benedict because, sad to say, some restaurants totally don’t know what they are doing with the Hollandaise sauce. Making Hollandaise sauce is like rocket science! But the chef at Boqueria does a really good job! The eggs are poached perfectly, the Hollandaise sauce is well-seasoned, and the smoked Scottish salmon that we got we it had a really nice flavor. It was served with french fries, which had a nice kick to them (I love spicy food!), and a house salad toss with light vinaigrette. It was quite a complete meal with their house-made lemonade!

I wish I could have tried all the 10 brunch dishes on the menu! Or some of their tapas dishes offered at lunch! Or the famous churros! I think I will definitely go back for some more food here.

If you are near Dupont Circle in D.C. or want to have a fun, nice brunch with your friends or partner, check out this place. You will get treated very well with their excellent service as well as their scrumptious food!
