I have the best friends in the world and on my birthday, they knew the way to my heart was through food! The day was full of surprises that I knew nothing about the Briarpatch was one of the most pleasant memories from that day. 

It was brunch time when we arrived, which is, let’s face it, the best meal of the day! Briarpatch didn’t disappoint because in addition to their regular brunch menu, they had specials going on as well. That’s where my eyes fell upon pork belly and waffles and I knew it had to be mine!

The food arrived and it was such a beautiful sight to behold. I had assumed that pork belly would be like thicker cut bacon, but I was soooo wrong. It was actual pork belly that had been glazed and braised in a bourbon syrup. They definitely didn’t skim either because there was so much meat I could barely see the waffle!

I took a bite and I didn’t even need a knife. The pork just fell apart so easily and it was the perfect compliment to the sweet waffle. Brunch was a silent and blissful affair as we were all too engrossed in our respective plates to do much more. When it was all said and done, we all reveled in our successful brunch adventure.
