Black History Month Brunch

Black History Month Brunch
 

Hey all. It's March 1st and Black History Month is over :(. It's always a good month for me though: both of my parent's celebrate their birthdays, Black Panther finally released, Valentine's Day, and a time to brunch? I celebrated a bit unconventional this year and went to a Black History Month Brunch with other super dope black intellectuals at Solomon & Kuff in Harlem, NY. It was hosted by a fellow HBCU grad, Teryn

So what did I think about this spot? Well, I usually think of chicken & waffles as the standard, so if you can't make this,  I usually judge everything else you got lol. These were O K A Y. I wasn't super impressed by the wings, they could have had more flavor and more crisp. The waffle itself was pretty good, but would have been a lot better if I loved banana bread. Guys, they didn't have whipped cream either! I love whipped cream with my waffles. I don't usually need it when they waffle and chicken combo is bomb though (no shade). I took pictures of the caribbean shrimp toast and steak& eggs, but did not order. Those that did said they were both really good, so maybe just the chicken and waffles were "eh."

Brunch is not complete without a bottomless option and Solomon & Kuff did not disappoint. The mimosas and bashment punch (their version of rum punch) were delicious and they kept 'em coming.

It was super loud during my Saturday brunch experience but I love a party-type brunch. Dancehall, Top 40, Hip Hop playing while I'm enjoying the company of those surrounding me? Yes, please.

Would I come here again? The answer yes. I just wouldn't order the same thing, lol.

Experience: 4/5 | My Food: 2/5
