Traif -- Pork & Shellfish in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
I have been spending a lot of time in Williamsburg these days.
Here is another quriky restaurant that has interesting menu.
Name of the restaurant, Traif, is a Hebrew word for un-kosher food.
The chef and co-owner of the restaurant is a Jewish and he serves many pork & shellfish dishes.
The restaurant has a small garden in the back with grape vines casting a lovely awning.
The restaurant serves dinner and weekend brunch. I was there for the weekend brunch.
The Costanza: Soft scramble eggs, lobster, mascarpone
Egg-in-a-nest, brie-roast portabello, grilled cheese
Bacon doughnuts, dulche de leche, coffee ice cream
The doughnets were sprinkled with bacon bits with caramelized sugar.
I seeme to come across to more and more dessert dishes that have salty ingredients in the recent days,
such as sea salt, basil, and now bacon. Could this be a new trend?
